Studies of the Pro12Ala polymorphism of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ2 (PPAR-γ2) gene in relation to insulin sensitivity among glucose tolerant Caucasians

Abstract

We examined whether the Pro12-Ala polymorphism of the human peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ2 (PPAR- γ 2) gene was related to altered insulin sensitivity among glucose-tolerant subjects or a lower accumulated incidence or prevalence of IGT and Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus among Scandinavian Caucasians. The Pro12Ala… (More)
