No evidence for involvement of alleles of the 825-C/T polymorphism of the G-protein subunit beta 3 in body weight regulation.

Abstract

The 825-C/T polymorphism of the beta 3 subunit of the heterotrimeric G protein gene (GNB3) has been shown to be associated with essential hypertension in humans. Recently, it was also reported that the 825-T allele has a higher frequency in obese than non-obese hypertensives suggesting that the primary effect of this allele is on body weight. The… (More)
