rs6721961 formerly -650 C/A
CC/CA/AA Han Chinese 300 cases
300 controls
Experimental A -650 allele is higher in patients than in controls and may be a risk factor associated with the development of vitiligo. Guan et al. 2008

1200 controls
Experimental No evidence of correlation between allele and genotype frequencies of HO-1 rs2071746 A/T) and the disease. Song P et al. 2016
HO-1 (GT)n repeats
GT lenght variability Taiwanese 367 cases
420 controls
Experimental Reduced risk is associated to the presence of short (GT)n repeats in the HO-1 gene promoter when exposed to environmental toxicants (no data available on vitiligo). Wu et al. 2010

169 controls
Experimental CAT gene C/T SNP associated with vitiligo susceptibility with the C/T genotype being significantly more frequent among vitiligo patients than healthy controls. Gavalas et al. 2006
CAT (389 C/T) rs769217
Asp389Asp Ex 9
CC/CT/TT US/Canadian/UK
Gujarati Indian
645 cases
689 controls
Meta-analysis The authors suggest CT+TT genotype increases the susceptibility risk of vitiligo in the analysed populations. Lv et al. 2011
CAT (389 C/T) rs769217 Asp389Asp Ex 9 CC/CT/TT Egyptian 89 cases
90 controls
Experimental Lack of association between CAT 389 C/T and vitiligo susceptibility in Egyptian patients. Mehaney et al. 2014
CAT -89A/T (rs7943316) CC/CT/TT Gujarati Indian 126 cases
143 controls
Experimental No association between CAT gene 389C/T polymorphism and vitiligo susceptibility. Shajil et al. 2007
CAT (C/T) rs769217
Asp389Asp Ex 9
Korean 118 cases
200 controls
Experimental The catalase gene polymorphism (rs769217 and rs7943316) may contribute to the susceptibility of vitiligo in Korean population, although susceptibility difference among ethnic groups may be due to a change in the allele frequency. Park HH et al. 2006
CAT (C/T) rs769217
Asp389Asp Ex 9
CAT (A/T) rs7943316
UK 103 cases

SOD3 rs8192291 SOD3 polymorphism was significantly associated with vitiligo susceptibility. The G allele was prevalent in patients compared to controls.
  1. For each polymorphism, the alternating nucleotides reported in brackets are coincident with those found on the DNA forward strand
  2. The name of each gene polymorphism is listed by using its common abbreviation, e.g., GST, NRF2, SOD
  3. The rs code is an accession number used in databases to refer to specific and unique SNPs
  4. **GST-M1 and GST-T1 null means the absence of both polymorphic genes
