Background: Janus kinases (JAKs) are a family of non-receptor protein tyrosine kinases that are expressed in a variety of tissues. Several JAK-controlled cytokine receptor pathways are incriminated in the initiation and progression of psoriasis. Genetic polymorphisms influencing JAK expression would be anticipated to have a great impact on disease activity. Objective: The aim of the study was to evaluate the association between JAK1 rs310241 and JAK3 rs3008 polymorphisms and the risk of developing psoriasis. Methods: Blood samples of 150 patients and 120 controls were screened for nucleotide polymorphisms in JAK1 rs310241 and JAK3 rs3008 genes by using polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-restriction fragment length polymorphism technique. Results: The GG genotype of the JAK1 rs310241 and JAK3 rs3008 genes was significantly associated with an increase in psoriasis risk (p = 0.000, OR = 7.7, 95% CI = 2.8–21.5; p = 0.003, OR = 3.3, 95% CI = 1.5–6.9, respectively). The G allele of both genes was also associated with psoriasis susceptibility (p = 0.000, OR = 2.0, 95% CI = 1.4–2.8; p = 0.002, OR = 1.7, 95% CI = 1.2–2.4, respectively). Conclusion: The results indicate a possible association between JAK1 rs310241 and JAK3 rs3008 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to psoriasis. These findings validate the importance of these molecules in psoriasis and may enable the identification of the individuals most susceptible to the disease.
