Amerindians show association to obesity with adiponectin gene SNP45 and SNP276: population genetics of a food intake control and “thrifty” gene


Adiponectin gene polymorphisms SNP45 and SNP276 have been related to metabolic syndrome (MS) and related pathologies, including obesity. However results of associations are contradictory depending on which population is studied. In the present study, these adiponectin SNPs are for the first time studied in Amerindians. Allele frequencies are obtained and… (More)
