This study was aimed todetermine the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in PAGE family member 4 (PAGE4) gene in men with benign prostate hyperplasia from Iraq. Blood samples were collected and molecular analysis of PAGE4 has been studied by using PCR. A primer was designed for amplification of first region which included (exon1, intron1, exon2 and part of intron2 ) of that gene. It was found that this region of gene appeared as a single band, 1491bp in size. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were determined in this regionusing DNA sequencing technique. Then, nucleotide sequences were aligned with control group (healthy men) and with NCBI. Results also showed that seven polymorphisms were detected in first region of PAGE4 gene; six of them were substitution polymorphisms while one was addition polymorphism. Upon such findings, it can be concluded that some single nucleotide polymorphism in PAGE4 gene may affect gene expression.
