Chromosome 4q locus associated with insulin resistance in Pima Indians. Studies in three European NIDDM populations.

Abstract:

Markers on chromosome 4q have recently been shown to be associated with insulin resistance in Pima Indians, a population in which insulin resistance precedes and predicts the development of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). To examine whether genes in this region could play a major role in susceptibility to NIDDM in other populations, we have examined the allele frequencies of a trinucleotide repeat near the fatty acid-binding protein 2 (FABP2) gene on 4q28-31 in three European...
