The genetic variant of lactase persistence C (−13910) T as a risk factor for type I and II diabetes in the Finnish population


Objective: Lactase persistence (LP), the ability to maintain a high lactase activity throughout life, has been suggested to be a possible risk factor for diabetes. Recently, a single nucleotide polymorphism C (−13910) T, residing 14 kb from the 5′ end of the lactase (LCT) gene was shown to be associated with LP. Here we have studied the relationship between… (More)
