Association between the human glycoprotein PC-1 gene and elevated glucose and insulin levels in a paired-sibling analysis.

We studied whether there is an association between the single nucleotide polymorphism c.533A>C (K121Q) in the glycoprotein PC-1 gene and features of the metabolic syndrome in case-control and intrafamily association studies in 922 subjects from Finland and Sweden. No difference was observed in the Q allele frequency between control subjects and type 2… CONTINUE READING
