Abstract The association between the polymorphic CAG repeat in androgen receptor gene (AR) and prostate cancer susceptibility has been studied extensively. However, the results are contradictory. The purpose of our meta-analysis was to investigate whether CAG repeat related to prostate cancer risk and had genetic heterogeneity across different geographic regions and study designs. Random-effects model was performed irrespective of between-study heterogeneity. Data and study quality were assessed in duplicate. Publication bias was assessed by the fail-safe number and Egger's test. There were 16 (patients/controls: 2972/3792), 19 (3835/4908) and 12 (3372/2631) study groups for comparisons of C20, 22 and 23 repeats of CAG sequence, respectively. Compared with CAG repeat<20, 22 or 23, carriers of ≥20, 22 or 23 repeats had 21% (95% CI: 0.61-1.02; P = 0.076), 5% (95% CI: 0.81-1.11; P = 0.508) and 5% (95% CI: 0.76-1.20; P = 0.681) decreased risk of prostate cancer. After classifying studies by geographic areas, carriers of ≥20 repeats had 11% decreased risk in populations from USA, 53% from Europe, and 20% from Asia (P>0.05), whereas comparison of ≥23 repeats with others generated a significant prediction in European populations (OR = 1.17; P = 0.039). Stratification by study designs revealed no material changes in risk estimation. Meta-regression analysis found no significant sources of between-study heterogeneity for age, study design and geographic region for all comparisons. There was no identified publication bias. Taken together, our results demonstrated that AR CAG repeat polymorphism with C20 repeats might confer a protective effect among the prostate cancer patients with 45 years older but not all the prostate cancer patients. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2011.

The Longmen Shan thrust belt in the eastern margin of the Tibetan Plateau underwent deformation of D1 associated with the Late Triassic collision between the North and South China Blocks, followed by deformation of D2 and D3 related to the eastward growth of the Tibetan Plateau. The D1 is marked by moderately tight folds (f1), spaced cleavage (S1), mineral lineation (L1), multistage reactivated faults, and top-to-the south thrusting. This deformation initiated before 237 Ma and ended at 208 Ma. The 193-159 Ma D2 deformation is top-to-the-southeast directed and normal ductile in nature and was associated with the formation of half-graben basins. The Mesozoic deformation of the Longmen Shan belt was related to the subduction of the Paleo-Tethys oceanic lithosphere, followed by the South China Block underneath the Songpan-Ganze Terrane. The D1 was produced in the pro-side of the overriding Songpan-Ganze plate, most probably driven by slab corner flow above the retreating South China Block. The D2 and extensional Songpan-Ganze turbidite basin were produced by roll-back and migration of the overriding plate above the retreating subduction zone. This model for the deformation from D1 to D2 is similar to a Mediterranean-style model. The D3 is characterized by SE-ward thrusting with stepwise migration of rapid denudation and dextral strike-slip faulting during the Late Cretaceous to present. Therefore, the Longmen Shan thrust belt involved Mesozoic compressional and extensional events that were overprinted by the Late Cretaceous to Cenozoic compressional event.

Background: The association between polymorphisms on 15q25.1 and lung cancer has been widely evaluated; however, the studies have yielded contradictory results. We sought to investigate this inconsistency by performing a comprehensive meta-analysis on two polymorphisms (CHRNA3 gene: rs1051730 and AGPHD1 gene: rs8034191) on 15q25.1. Methods: Data were extracted from 15 and 14 studies on polymorphisms rs1051730 and rs8034191 involving 12301/14000 and 14075/12873 lung cancer cases/controls, respectively. The random-effects model was applied, addressing heterogeneity and publication bias. Results: The two polymorphisms followed Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium for all studies (P>0.05). For rs1051730-G/A, carriers of A allele had a 36% increased risk for lung cancer (95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.27-1.46; P<0.0005), without heterogeneity (P = 0.258) or publication bias (P Egger = 0.462). For rs8034191-T/C, the allelic contrast indicated that C allele conferred a 23% increased risk for lung cancer (95% CI: 1.08-1.4; P = 0.002), with significant heterogeneity (P<0.0005), without publication bias (P Egger = 0.682). Subgroup analyses suggested that the between-study heterogeneity was derived from ethnicity, study design, matched information, and lung cancer subtypes. For example, the association of polymorphisms rs1051730 and rs8034191 with lung cancer was heterogeneous between Caucasians (OR = 1.32 and 1.22; 95% CI: 1.25-1.44 and 1.05-1.42; P<0.0005 and 0.008, respectively) and East Asians (OR = 1.51 and 1.03; 95% CI: 0.76-3 and 0.47-2.27; P = 0.237 and 0.934, respectively) under the allelic model, and this association was relatively strengthened under the dominant model. There was no observable publication bias for both polymorphisms. Conclusions: Our findings demonstrated that CHRNA3 gene rs1051730-A allele and AGPHD1 gene rs8034191-T allele might be risk-conferring factors for the development of lung cancer in Caucasians, but not in East-Asians. © 2012 Gu et al.
