BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Potassium inwardly rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 11 (KCNJ11) gene have a key role in insulin secretion and is of substantial interest as a candidate gene for type 2 diabetes (T2D). The current work was performed to delineate the genetic influence of KCNJ11 polymorphisms on risk of T2D in South Indian population through(More)
AIM Several genetic variants for type 2 diabetes (T2D) have been identified through genome wide association studies (GWAS) from Caucasian population; however replication studies were not consistent across various ethnicities. Objective of the current study is to examine the possible correlation of 9 most significant GWAS single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARγ), adiponectin (ADIPOQ) and fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO) have been reported as a key candidate genes for obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2D) susceptibility and insulin resistance, and we hypothesize that in the background of obesity, the effect of PPARγ2 (rs1801282), ADIPOQ (rs16861194) and FTO(More)
Paraoxonase (PON) is an aryldialkylphosphatase, which reversibly binds and hydrolyzes organophosphates. The PON family has three members (PON1, PON2 and PON3); they share structural properties and enzymatic activities. PON1 is shown to reside over high density lipoprotein (HDL) and has both antioxidant and antiatherogenic functions. Function of PON2 and(More)
