ABSTRACT: Calsequestrin 1 (CASQ1) is a calcium storage protein of fast-twitch skeletal muscle cells. In previous human association studies the results have been contradictory regarding the association between a CASQ1 rs2275703 polymorphism and type 2 diabetes. In the present study of the CASQ1 rs2275703 polymorphism in 7,088 Danish whites the allele frequency and genotype distribution did not differ between type 2 diabetic patients and glucose-tolerant control subjects, neither was found any association with diabetes-related quantitative traits.
