CIMPONERIU, Danut et al. The insulin polymorphism -23Hph increases the risk for type 1 diabetes mellitus in the Romanian population. Genet. Mol. Biol. [online]. 2010, vol.33, n.4, pp. 610-614. Epub 08-Set-2010. ISSN 1415-4757. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-47572010005000074.
The insulin -23Hph and IGF2 Apa polymorphisms were genotyped in Romanian patients with T1DM (n = 204), T2DM (n = 215) or obesity (n = 200) and normoponderal healthy subjects (n = 750). The genotypes of both polymorphisms were distributed in concordance with Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium in all groups. The -23Hph AA genotype increased the risk for T1DM (OR: 3.22, 95%CI: 2.09-4.98, p < 0,0001), especially in patients without macroalbuminuria (OR: 4.32, 95%CI: 2.54-7.45, p < 0,0001). No other significant association between the alleles or genotypes of insulin -23Hph and IGF2 Apa and diabetes or obesity was identified.
