ATP-sensitive potassium channels (KATP-channels) have an exclusive cardioprotective role in endogenous heart protection from ischemic damage and regulate vascular tone. KCNJ11 (Kir6.2) polymorphisms I337V (rs5215) and G23L (rs5219, E23K), and ABCC8 (SUR1) polymorphisms S1369A (rs757110) was genotyped in 529 patients with myocardial infarction, acute and chronic heart failure, in adolescents with primary hypertension, and as control group in clinically healthy subjects of Ukraine population by the real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). It was shown that the frequency of genotypes Glu/Glu, Glu/Lys and Lys/Lys of polymorphism E23K, and genotypes Ser/Ser, Ser/Ala and Ala/Ala of polymorphism S1369A was as follows: in 107 patients with myocardial infarction - 40.2, 43.9 and 15.9%; in 96 patients with acute heart failure - 41.7, 42.7 and 15.6%; in 99 patients with chronic heart failure - 43.4, 44.4 and 12.1%; in 104 adolescents with primary hypertension - 41.4, 46.2 and 12.5% respectively. The distribution of these genotypes in the control group in 98 clinically healthy people was 37.8, 46.9 and 15.3% respectively. Inheritance of SNPs E23K and S1369A were linked. The frequency of genotypes Ile/Ile, Ile/Val and Val/Val of polymorphism I337V was as follows: in 102 patients with myocardial infarction - 32.4, 51.0 and 16.7%; in 93 patients with acute heart failure - 37,6, 43,0 and 19,4%; in 98 patients with chronic heart failure - 40,8, 44,9 and 14,3%; in 90 clinically healthy people - 35.6, 45.6 and 18.9% respectively. Incidence of allelic polymorphisms I337V, E23K and S1369A corresponds to Hardy-Weinberg principle. By criterion χ2, no significant differences were found between the groups. Thus, the frequency of allele polymorphisms I337V, E23K, and S1369A in patients with myocardial infarction, acute and chronic heart failure, and primary hypertension in adolescents was determined, and it has been shown that it does not significantly differ from the frequency in clinically healthy residents of Ukraine.
