Endogenous sex hormones have been observed to have a role in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) predisposition. Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) regulates the bioavailability of sex hormones to target tissues. Therefore, we examined the distribution of the SHBG functional polymorphism Asp327Asn (rs6259) in SLE patients (n = 150) and controls (n = 150) in a Polish population. We found a contribution of the SHBG327Asn variant to the development of SLE. Women with the Asp/Asn and Asn/Asn… 
Association of rs6259 polymorphism with SHBG levels and Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome in Indian population: a case control study
Significant difference in SHBG levels of PCOS and control group highlights the potential of SHBG as a biomarker for PCOS, however, no significant difference in genotype distribution betweenPCOS and controls provided an insight that rs6259 polymorphism is not associated with the risk of PCos and SH BG levels.
Genetic polymorphisms of the SHBG gene can be the effect on SHBG and HDL-cholesterol levels in Coronary Heart Disease: a case–control study
There is a positive correlation between SHBG and HDL-C levels in CHD patients, and this association might be affected by SHBG gene variations.
Sex Hormones and their Analogues in Neuroimmune Biology
The sex hormones that play major roles in the neuroimmune regulatory network include gonadotropins, prolac- tin, estrogens, progestogens, androgens and their agonists and antagonists and the above listed hormones are discussed from the point of view of treating human diseases.
Can estrogens promote hypertension during systemic lupus erythematosus?


Common genetic variation in the sex steroid hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) gene and circulating shbg levels among postmenopausal women: the Multiethnic Cohort.
The results suggest that genetic variation at the SHBG locus may contribute to modest differences in SHBG levels among healthy postmenopausal women, and that much larger studies will be needed to better comprehend the effects of common variations at this locus in predicting circulatingSHBG levels.
Influence of SHBG gene pentanucleotide TAAAA repeat and D327N polymorphism on serum sex hormone-binding globulin concentration in hirsute women.
The present results support the notion that polymorphism(s) within the coding sequence and, potentially, in the regulatory sequence of the SHBG gene are associated with circulating SHBG levels and may represent part of the genetic background of sex steroid hormone activity in humans.
Genetic variation of human sex hormone-binding globulin: evidence for a worldwide bi-allelic gene.
Genetic variation of human sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) has been investigated on 1690 unrelated neuraminidase-treated serum samples using isoelectric focusing followed by transfer to nitrocellulose membranes and immunostaining, showing excellent agreement between observed and expected phenotype numbers.
MTR 2756 A > G polymorphism is associated with the risk of systemic lupus erythematosus in the Polish population
These findings confirm the significance of the role of 1q region and the methyl cycle in etiopathogenesis of SLE and show the distribution of polymorphisms of genes encoding methionine synthase, which is located on 1q43.
Low plasma androgens in women with systemic lupus erythematosus.
The fact that specific abnormalities of androgen metabolism in the female are associated with SLE, and may contribute in some way to morbidity and mortality, is supported and may have implications for future therapeutic regimens based on male hormone replacement.
Polymorphisms in the tyrosine kinase 2 and interferon regulatory factor 5 genes are associated with systemic lupus erythematosus.
The results support a disease mechanism in SLE that involves key components of the type I IFN system, and identify SNPs that displayed strong signals in joint analysis of linkage and association with SLE.
Association of systemic lupus erythematosus with C8orf13-BLK and ITGAM-ITGAX.
The authors identified and then confirmed through replication two new genetic loci for SLE: a promoter-region allele associated with reduced expression of BLK and increased expression of C8orf13 and variants in the ITGAM-ITGAX region.
Genome-wide association scan in women with systemic lupus erythematosus identifies susceptibility variants in ITGAM, PXK, KIAA1542 and other loci
The results show that numerous genes, some with known immune-related functions, predispose to SLE, and evidence of association with replication is found at FCGR2A, PTPN22 and STAT4, regions previously associated with SLE and other autoimmune diseases.
Molecular analyses of a human sex hormone-binding globulin variant: evidence for an additional carbohydrate chain.
Genomic DNA was isolated from an individual who is homozygous for a sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) variant that resolves into three molecular weight forms of 56K, 52K, and 48K during electrophoresis under denaturing conditions and sequence analysis revealed a point mutation encoding an amino acid substitution at residue 327 in the SHBG polypeptide.
