Genetic predisposition is a risk factor for the development of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs). Disruption of the interleukin (IL)-10 pathway in mice causes intestinal inflammation similar to human IBD. Two common non-synonymous IL-10R1 variants, S138G and G330R, were cloned and expressed in HeLa and Ba/F3. A reduction in IL-10-induced STAT1 and STAT3 activation was seen for IL-10R1-S138G (but not IL-10R1-G330R) by phosphospecific western blotting in both cell types. When analyzing 52 world populations for the presence of IL-10R1 variants, a strong dissimilarity was found between major geographical regions. In addition, when 182 IBD–parent trios were genotyped for both variants, a reduced transmission of haplotype -7 (carrying the S138G variant allele) to offspring with ulcerative colitis (UC) was observed. This UC-protective effect of S138G was confirmed in a Hungarian cohort (n¼185, allele frequency 11.6 versus 17.5%; P¼0.017) but not in an independent Belgian cohort (n¼666, allele frequency 15.9 versus 15.5%; P¼0.8). In conclusion, the IL-10R1 S138G variant is a loss-offunction allele for IL-10-induced STAT1 and STAT3 activation but does not protect from UC susceptibility.
