BACKGROUND To investigate the effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) 45 and 276 of the adiponectin gene on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) with or without metabolic syndrome. METHODS A total of 165 NAFLD, 83 NAFLD with metabolic syndrome and 160 healthy controls from Chinese population were genotyped for the adiponectin gene (+45T>G and +276G>T) by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism methods. Plasma adiponectin and insulin levels were determined by enzyme-linked… CONTINUE READING
