The PPARgamma Pro12Ala polymorphism has been associated in several studies with a decreased risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. Weak hints are available about the influence of PPARgamma Pro12Ala on postprandial metabolism. In 708 men, aged 45 to 65 years the PPARgamma2 Pro12Ala genotypes were determined and postprandial TAG, insulin,(More)
The fatty acid binding protein 2 (FABP2) mediates the intestinal uptake of fatty acids. We and others have identified six FABP2 promoter polymorphisms which result in two haplotypes, A and B. Reporter-gene assays indicated different activity in FABP2 promoter alleles A and B and different responsiveness to PPAR ligands. IN SILICO analysis revealed different(More)
