G protein beta3 gene variant, vascular function, and insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes.


A common polymorphism (825 C/T) in exon 10 of the GNB3 gene, that encodes for the beta-3 subunit, has been associated with different degrees of activation of heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide binding proteins (G proteins). Many hormones and neurotransmitters use specific receptors that interact noncovalently with G proteins in the transmembrane signaling… (More)
