BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The GLUT4 gene, which encodes glucose transporter 4, is a candidate gene for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The aim of this study was to screen the GLUT4 gene for polymorphisms and to study association of such polymorphisms with T2DM in an Asian Indian population in southern India. METHODS The GLUT4 gene was sequenced in 25 normal glucose tolerance (NGT) and 25 T2DM subjects, and the variants found were then genotyped by polymerase chain reaction-restriction… CONTINUE READING
