SUMMARY OBJECTIVES Metabolic syndrome is defined as a cluster of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and is intimately related to insulin resistance. Resistin, a hormone secreted by adipocytes, may play an important role in communication between adiposity and insulin resistance. We investigated whether variations in the resistin gene associated with metabolic syndrome in a Japanese population. METHOD We analyzed five SNPs, two of which were located in the promoter region (-420C > G… CONTINUE READING
