CONTEXT Serum levels of resistin are believed to modulate insulin resistance in humans. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate whether serum resistin levels are genetically controlled and whether this control is shared with other insulin resistance traits. DESIGN AND METHODS The study cohort included 264 nondiabetic probands, Caucasian from Italy, and their 473 adult family members. Phenotypic characterization included anthropometric variables, blood pressure, fasting glucose… CONTINUE READING
