Association between the T-381C polymorphism of the brain natriuretic peptide gene and risk of type 2 diabetes in human populations.
Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP/NPPB) is a member of the natriuretic family involved in the regulation of blood pressure and blood volume as well as lipolysis control in human fat cells. Thus BNP may play a role in energy metabolism and metabolic diseases. We therefore assessed the association between the BNP promoter T-381C polymorphism and risk of type 2 diabetes and metabolic and BNP expression traits in several population samples. In French population-based samples (n = 3216), we found tha...Expand abstract
