Recently, Genome Wide Association (GWA) studies identified novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), highly associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D) in several case-control studies of European descent. However, the impact of these markers on glucose homeostasis in a population-based study remains to be clarified. The French prospective D.E.S.I.R. study (N = 4,707) was genotyped for 22 polymorphisms within 14 loci showing nominal to strong association with T2D in recently published GWA analyses… CONTINUE READING
