Gene details

HGNC symbol
CD14 
Aliases
 
Common name
CD14 molecule 
Description
The protein encoded by this gene is a surface antigen that is preferentially expressed on monocytes/macrophages. It cooperates with other proteins to mediate the innate immune response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding the same protein.

Study Design
A two-stage case-control study was performed to identify the association between longevity and variation of in homeostasis regulation pathway genes. 317 SNPs in 104 genes were analyzed in 78 cases (≥90 years, median age 98 years, 42 females) and 71 controls (<90 years, median age 67 years, 32 females) in stage 1. Then, 31 candidate SNPs identified in stage 1 (π markers = 0.1) were analyzed in an independent sample composed by 288 cases (≥90 years, median age 92 years, 163 females) and 554 controls (<90 years, median age 67 years, 277 females).
Conclusions
After adjustment for multiple testing, no significant association was identified between various SNPs and longevity.

    Study Design
    The baseline levels of sCD14 (soluble form of CD14) were measured in 5888 European-American and black adults aged 65 years and older from the Cardiovascular Health Study. A genome-wide cardiovascular disease candidate gene-centric association with sCD14 was conducted separately in the European-Americans (n=2952) and blacks (n=528). Finally, the ability of sCD14 and its main genetic determinants to predict incident CVD and mortality during follow-up was assessed.
    Conclusions
    sCD14 was positively correlated with cardio-metabolic risk factors and with subclinical measures of vascular disease, and was also inversely correlated with body mass index (all P<0.001). In European Americans the minor allele at the index SNP rs5744441 was associated with lower sCD14, the C allele of index SNP rs1063412 was associated with lower sCD14. In Blacks the index SNP rs778584 was associated with higher sCD14. In the fully adjusted model, sCD14 was associated with death because of cardiovascular causes (hazard ratio=1.13, P=0.001) and death because of noncardiovascular causes (hazard ratio=1.11, P=0.001). CD14 independently predicts risk mortality in older adults. However, no SNPs were associated with risk of mortality when corrected for multiple hypothesis testing.
