Association of POL1, MALT1, MC4R, PHLPP and DSEL single nucleotide polymorphisms in chromosome 18q region with type 2 diabetes in Tunisians.

Previous studies and replication analyses have linked chromosome 18q21.1-23 with type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and its complications, including diabetic nephropathy (DN). Here we investigated the association of POL1-nearby variant rs488846, MALT1-nearby variant rs2874116, MC4R-nearby variant rs1942872, PHLPP rs9958800 and DSEL-nearby variant rs9966483 single… CONTINUE READING
