ABSTRACT Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of ADIPOQ, ADIPOR1, and ADIPOR2 have been associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), but there are many conflicting results especially in Chinese populations. To investigate the contribution of the adiponectin genes and their receptors to T2DM, a case-control study was performed and 11 SNPs of ADIPOQ, ADIPOR1, and ADIPOR2 were genotyped in 985 T2DM and 1,050 control subjects. rs16861194 (-11426 A>G) in the putative promoter of ADIPOQ was associated with T2DM (P = 0.007; OR = 1.29, 95%CI 1.08-1.55). None of the other 10 SNPs were associated with T2DM in this study, although rs2241766 and rs1501299 were reported to be associated with T2DM in previous Chinese studies. There was also no significant difference found from the ADIPOQ haplotype analysis, which contains rs16861194. In addition, we also assessed potential gene-gene interactions in three genes and no interactions were found. In conclusion, our results supported the ADIPOQ gene as a possible risk factor for type 2 diabetes in Han Chinese population.

    ABSTRACT: Diabetes is a serious global health problem. Large-scale genome-wide association studies identified loci for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), including adiponectin (ADIPOQ) gene and transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2), but few studies clarified the effect of genetic polymorphisms of ADIPOQ and TCF7L2 on risk of T2DM. We attempted to elucidate association between T2DM and polymorphic variations of both in Taiwan's Chinese Han population, with our retrospective case-control study genotyping single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in ADIPOQ and TCF7L2 genes both in 149 T2DM patients and in 139 healthy controls from Taiwan. Statistical analysis gauged association of these polymorphisms with risk of T2DM to show ADIPOQ rs1501299 polymorphism variations strongly correlated with T2DM risk (P = 0.042), with rs2241766 polymorphism being not associated with T2DM (P = 0.967). However, both polymorphisms rs7903146 and rs12255372 of TCF7L2 were rarely detected in Taiwanese people. This study avers that ADIPOQ rs1501299 polymorphism contributes to risk of T2DM in the Taiwanese population.

    ABSTRACT: Background/objectives:To investigate the association of adiponectin and its gene polymorphisms with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in Chinese adolescents.Subjects/methods:This cross-sectional study enrolled 919 healthy middle school students (aged 11-16 years; 46.7% females). All participants underwent anthropometric and biochemical examinations, and MetS was diagnosed using 2007 International Diabetes Federation criteria. The presence of adiponectin and its genotypes of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs266729 (-11377C/G), rs2241766 (+45T/G) and rs1501299 (+276G/T) was detected.Results:(1) Serum adiponectin levels were negatively correlated with numerous CVD risk factors (all P<0.05), and following adjustments for confounding factors, a lower adiponectin level was an independent risk factor for MetS (odds ratio=5.59; 95% confidence interval: 1.90, 16.41). Central obesity and low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol were positively associated with MetS and reduced serum adiponectin levels. (2) The genotype and frequencies of SNP-11377 and SNP+276 in a MetS group and non-MetS group were not significantly different. Subjects with genotype SNP+45 GG were at higher risk for MetS compared with subjects with genotypes SNP+45 TT (P=0.033) or TT+TG (P=0.021). Subjects with genotype SNP+276 TT or TT+TG had higher levels of serum adiponectin compared with subjects with SNP+276 GG (P=0.012 and 0.014, respectively).Conclusions:Adiponectin may be used as a predictive biomarker of MetS, and shows a significant association with CVD risk factors in Chinese adolescents. Adiponectin gene polymorphisms are associated with serum adiponectin concentrations and the presence of MetS.European Journal of Clinical Nutrition advance online publication, 30 July 2014; doi:10.1038/ejcn.2014.152.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, a number of studies have reported the association between the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) +45T>G polymorphism in the adiponectin (ADIPOQ) gene and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) risk, though the results are inconsistent. In order to obtain a more precise estimation of the relationship, a meta-analysis was performed. In this current study, the Medline, Embase, Pubmed, ISI Web of Knowledge, Ovid, Science Citation Index Expanded Database, Wanfang Database, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure were searched for eligible studies. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to estimate the strength of association. Forty-five publications were included in the final meta-analysis with 9986 T2DM patients and 16,222 controls for ADIPOQ +45T>G polymorphism according to our inclusion and exclusion criteria. The +45T>G polymorphism was associated with an overall significantly increased risk of T2DM (G vs. T: OR = 1.18, 95% CI = 1.06-1.32; The dominant model: OR = 1.18, 95% CI = 1.03-1.33; The recessive model: OR = 1.47, 95% CI = 1.20-1.78; The homozygous model: OR = 1.62, 95% CI = 1.25-2.09; Except the heterozygous model: OR = 1.11, 95% CI = 0.98-1.24). Subgroup analysis revealed a significant association between the +45T>G polymorphism and T2D in an Asian population. Thus, this meta-analysis indicates that the G allele of the ADIPOQ +45T>G polymorphisms associated with a significantly increased risk of T2DM in the Asian population.
