Genetic variability on adiponectin gene affects myocardial infarction risk: the role of endothelial dysfunction.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Adiponectin is an adipokine with an important role in cardiovascular system conferring anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic effects. Two common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) on adiponectin gene, rs2241766 and rs1501299, have been associated with insulin resistance and diabetes mellitus risk however their effects on cardiovascular risk remain unclear. We examined the impact of rs2241766 and rs1501299 on circulating adiponectin levels, endothelial function and cardiovascul...
