Abstract

We studied whether there is an association between the single nuceotide polymorphism c.533A>C (K121Q) in the glycoprotein PC-1 gene and features of the metabolic syndrome in case-control and intrafamily association studies in 922 subjects from Finland and Sweden. No difference was observed in the Q allele frequency between control subjects and type 2 diabetic subjects (12.9 vs. 15.1%). The QK genotype was associated with higher fasting plasma glucose (FPG) concentrations than the KK genotype in type 2 diabetic patients (P
