GENETIC ASSOCIATION OF ADRA2A AND ADRB3 GENES WITH METABOLIC SYNDROME AMONG THE TATARS

Abstract:

An association study was performed for genetic polymorphisms in ADRB3 (rs4994) and ADRA2A (rs1800544, rs553668) genes to estimate their effect on quantitative parameters, including glucose, insulin, and HOMA-IR index in women from the Tatar population of Russia. It has been shown that CT and CC are associated with metabolic syndrome and increased insulin. It was shown that ADRA2A (rs1800544) gene polymorphism was associated with high levels of insulin and an increased HOMA-IR index in GG- and GC-genotype carriers. Polymorphic locus rs553668 of gene ADRA2A is associated with increased glucose in CT- and TT-genotype carriers.
