|Abstract:||The metabolic syndrome is related to increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Adiponectin is an adipocyte-secreted protein with insulin-sensitizing and anti-atherogenic properties. The aims of this study were to evaluate adiponectin levels and biochemical parameters in metabolic-syndrome subjects and healthy controls. The study also sought to identify links between two polymorphisms, -11377C>G (rs266729) and +45T>G (rs2241766) of the adiponectin gene, in relation to adiponectin levels and the metabolic syndrome. Three hundres and thirty-two Thai volunteers: 164 metabolic-syndrome subjects and 168 healthy control subjects were investigated. The adiponectin and HDL-C levels of the metabolic-syndrome group were significantly lower than the control group (p<0.001). Decreased concentration of adiponectin was associated with -11377C>G polymorphism (p<0.001); this polymorphism was significantly more frequent in the metabolic syndrome group than in the control group (p<0.001). However, +45T>G polymorphism of the adiponectin gene was found not to be related to adiponectin level or metabolic syndrome. Therefore, -11377C>G polymorphism was related to the metabolic syndrome susceptibility, and this polymorphism impacted on circulating adiponectin concentrations among Thais.|
