Objective: To explore the correlation between the protein expression and polymorphism of leptin receptor (LEPR) gene and the occurrence, development and pathologic characteristics of breast cancer Methods: The protein expression of LEPR and its Gln223Arg polymorphism in pre-surgery breast tumor tissues of 132 patients, in benign tumor tissues of 66 patients and in normal paracancerous tissues of 30 patients and in anti-coagulant cubital vein blood of 128 healthy subjects were examined using immunohistochemical staining and PCR-RFLP, respectively Results: The positive rate of LEPR expression in breast tumor tissues was 70.5%, significantly higher than that of 56.1% in benign breast tissues and that of 43.3% in normal paracancerous breast tissues (P<0.001 and P<0.005, respectively). The genotype frequencies of GG, GA and AA of LEPR Gln223Arg were 69.15%, 17.02% and 13.83%, respectively, and the allele G and A frequencies were 77.66% and 22.34% in breast tumor tissues, which were significantly different from that of 82.03%, 15.63% and 2.34% of genotype GG, GA and AA (P=0.004) and 89.4% and 10.6% of allele G and A (P=0.001) in anti-coagulant cubital vein blood of healthy subjects. In addition, LPER expression was correlated neither with menopausal status, histological type, tumor size, tumor grade and metastasis status (P>0.05), nor the expression of estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor(PR) (P>0.05).However, the positive rate (87.8%) of LEPR expression in patients with lymph node metastasis was significantly higher than that of 60.2% in patients with no lymph node metastasis (P=0.02). Non-conditional logistic regression analysis indicated that the high LEPR expression, the LEPR gene Gln223Arg polymorphism and high WHR were correlated with the occurrence of breast cancer (OR=4.87, 95% CI: 1.30~18.22, P=0.019; OR = 1.53, 95%CI: 1.13~2.07, P=0.006; OR = 3.68, 95%CI: 1.34~10.11, P=0.011). Conclusion: High expression of LEPR, LEPR gene Gln223Arg polymorphism and enhanced WHR are related with the high risk for breast cancer Key Words: Breast cancer, Leptin receptor gene, Gln223Arg polymorphism
