FABP-2 and PPAR-γ Haplotype as Risk Factors for Dyslipidemia in a Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Population of Santa Rosa del Conlara, San Luis, Argentina

Susana Siewert, María Florencia Olmos Nicotra, Irma Ines Gonzalez, Gustavo Fernandez, Marta Susana Ojeda
Introduction: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) is a complex disorder caused by the interaction between genetic predisposition and environmental factors. Genetics plays an important role on lipid homeostasis. Many genes are involved in the lipid metabolism, such as FABP-2 and PPAR-γ. Aim: To evaluate the association between specific SNPs and haplotypes of the FABP-2 and PPAR-γ genes with T2DM and lipid profile in an Argentinean population. Methods: The FABP-2 (rs1799883) and PPAR-...

Kamleshun Ramphul
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways manifested by reversible airflow obstruction and airway hyperresponsiveness. While recent research has mapped several genes as possible factors predisposing to asthma, interleukin-13 remains one of the most commonly found genes in various populations. IL-13 is a pleiotropic TH2 cytokine which has been linked to cause an increase in goblet cell differentiation, activation of fibroblasts, elevation of bronchial hyperresponsiveness and s...
