The potential association of resistin (RETN) gene variability with obesity-related phenotypes was investigated in 585 non-diabetic individuals of European descent. The polymorphism studied (−420 C>G) is located in the RETN gene 5′-flanking region. A significant association between the polymorphism and body mass index and waist circumference was observed in the women subsample (n=356), where the G allele was somewhat less frequent in the overweight/obese group than in normal-weight individuals… CONTINUE READING
