The objective of the study was to test for an association between type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and body mass index (BMI) and three single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP)s in the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator-1 alpha (PGC-1alpha) gene. We were also interested in whether these associations differed by tertiles of diet, physical activity or presence of polymorphisms in the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma) gene among Hispanics and Non… CONTINUE READING
