Genetic polymorphisms of human beta-adrenergic receptor genes and their association with obesity.

Abstract

The prevalent rates of overweight and obesity are steadily increasing all over the world. Previous studies of some candidate genes have indicated that most of the genes are associated with obesity in human adipose tissue. As much as 40% of the variations in body mass could be attributed to genetic difference. The beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR) plays a… (More)
