The PvuII and XbaI polymorphisms of the estrogen receptor α (ER1) gene have been variably associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D) in several populations. However, this association has not been studied in Iranian subjects and we hypothesized that the ER1 variants might be associated with T2D and related metabolic traits in this population. The PvuII and XbaI genotypes were determined by PCR-RFLP in 377 normoglycemic controls and 155 T2D patients. Bonferroni correction was applied for the… CONTINUE READING
