The present study examined mRNA levels of apolipoprotein M (apoM) and apolipoprotein AI (apoAI) in the term placental tissues obtained from 37 women with normal birth weight neonates and from 37 women with macrosomic neonates (birth body weight a parts per thousand yen4,000 g), and further discussed possible clinical significance of these observations. The mRNA levels of apoM and apoAI in the placental tissues were determined by the real time RT-PCR, which demonstrated that both apoM and apoAI mRNA levels were significantly higher in the placentas from macrosomia than those from normal birth. Moreover, we analyzed the overexpressions of apoM and apoAI with the clinical data. Meanwhile we examined several known risk factors of macrosomia including the mRNA levels of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), IGF-II, insulin-like growth factor I receptor (IGF-IR) and IGF-IIR. It demonstrated that apoM expression was significantly positively correlated to the placental weight, fetal birth weight, pregestational body mass index (BMI), weight gain during pregnancy, maternal weight, maternal BMI and the mRNA levels of IGF-IR as well as IGF-IIR. The apoAI mRNA level was statistically significantly correlated to the placental weight, fetal birth weight, IGF-I and IGF-IR mRNA levels. Binary logistic regression analysis suggested that both apoM and apoAI mRNA may considered as independent risk factors for macrosomia. The clinical significance needs further investigation.
