Increased abdominal obesity, insulin and glucose levels in nondiabetic subjects with a T29C polymorphism of the transforming growth factor-beta1 gene.

Abstract

BACKGROUND In humans, a T-->C transition at nucleotide 29 in the region encoding the signal peptide sequence of the transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta(1), which results in a Leu-->Pro substitution at codon 10, has been associated with myocardial infarction. AIMS/METHODS In the present study, we genotyped 284 unrelated, nondiabetic Swedish men born in… (More)
