Dozens of susceptibility loci have been identified by type 2 diabetes (T2D) genome wide association study (GWAS) in Europeans. In our previous studies, we systematically evaluated the association of 48 susceptibility loci with T2D risk in Chinese Hans. Because dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia are implicated in the pathogenic process of T2D, we further evaluated whether these 48 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were related to fasting plasma glucose (FPG) or lipid levels in Chinese Hans.

Resistin, an adipokine is involved in obesity and Type 2 Diabetes (T2D). The current study evaluates the association between RETN polymorphisms (-638 G/A, -420C/G & -358 G/A) and the risk towards ...
It remains unclear whether high plasma glucose levels are associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE). This study investigated the association between fasting plasma glucose (FPG), oral glucose toler...
To identify genetic contributions to type 2 diabetes (T2D) and related glycemic traits (fasting glucose, fasting insulin, and HbA1c), we conducted genome-wide association analyses (GWAS) in up to 7,17...
Recent meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies have identified over 241 inflammatory bowel disease susceptibility loci. However, the known variants only account for a fraction of inflammatory...
Optimal cutoff values of fasting plasma glucose (FPG) variability for detecting retinopathy and the threshold of FPG levels for predicting the risk of retinopathy in type 2 diabetes: A longitudinal study over 27 years.
To determine the cutoff values of fasting plasma glucose (FPG) variability for detecting retinopathy and examine the threshold of FPG levels for predicting retinopathy incidence in type 2 diabetes.
The identification and characterization of susceptibility loci for H5N1 infection in humans could have profound implications. The detection of host genetic factors may shed light on key pa...
Compelling evidence of genetic components in high myopia has been put forward by several studies. Twin cohorts, familial linkage studies and population studies has described at least 10 lo...
Lung cancer is a leading cause of cancer mortality among adults worldwide. The incidence rates of lung cancer among never smoking females in some parts of East Asia are among the highest i...
This study will examine whether fasting and non-fasting lipid measures can provide similar clinical information in order to guide lipid management by primary physicians. It will compare f...
Postprandial lipemia is highly prevalent in type 2 diabetes subjects even with normal fasting triglyceride values. Humans are mostly in a postprandial rather than in a fasting state and th...
A pathological state in which BLOOD GLUCOSE level is less than approximately 140 mg/100 ml of PLASMA at fasting, and above approximately 200 mg/100 ml plasma at 30-, 60-, or 90-minute during a GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST. This condition is seen frequently in DIABETES MELLITUS, but also occurs with other diseases and MALNUTRITION.
A technique for identifying individuals of a species that is based on the uniqueness of their DNA sequence. Uniqueness is determined by identifying which combination of allelic variations occur in the individual at a statistically relevant number of different loci. In forensic studies, RESTRICTION FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISM of multiple, highly polymorphic VNTR LOCI or MICROSATELLITE REPEAT loci are analyzed. The number of loci used for the profile depends on the ALLELE FREQUENCY in the population.
Genetic loci responsible for the encoding of minor lymphocyte stimulatory antigens. There are at least two unlinked loci (in the mouse) and they appear to be separate from the MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX and MINOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY LOCI. The mouse mammary tumor virus (see MAMMARY TUMOR VIRUS, MOUSE) has the ability to integrate into these loci. The antigens induce strong T-cell proliferative responses in mixed lymphocyte reactions.
Nonrandom association of linked genes. This is the tendency of the alleles of two separate but already linked loci to be found together more frequently than would be expected by chance alone.
Genetic loci responsible for the encoding of histocompatibility antigens other than those encoded by the MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILITY COMPLEX. The antigens encoded by these genes are often responsible for graft rejection in cases where histocompatibility has been established by standard tests. The location of some of these loci on the X and Y chromosomes explains why grafts from males to females may be rejected while grafts from females to males are accepted. In the mouse roughly 30 minor histocompatibility loci have been recognized, comprising more than 500 genes.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
