Contribution of a missense mutation (Trp64Arg) in beta3-adrenergic receptor gene to multiple risk factors in Japanese men with hyperuricemia.

Abstract

Epidemiological data reveal that hyperuricemia is a risk factor of atherosclerosis. The risk is possibly caused by a link between hyperuricemia and insulin resistance-related metabolic syndrome. Recently it has been proposed that a missense mutation (Trp64Arg) in the beta3-adrenergic receptor (beta3-AR) gene may contribute to the accumulation of multiple… (More)
