Objective:To explore the association of promoter polymorphisms of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) gene with obesity.Subjects:In total, 213 nondiabetic Japanese subjects. They were divided into three groups according to World Health Organization definitions: lean (body mass index (BMI) <25 kg/m2), overweight (25⩽BMI<30 kg/m2) and obese (BMI⩾30 kg/m2).Methods:We examined two polymorphic loci in the MIF gene in the subjects: a single-nucleotide polymorphism at position −173 (G/C) and… CONTINUE READING
