Mechanism:

  • Decreases the body’s ability to produce adiponectin (A). 
  • Lower adiponectin levels in plasma (Type 2 diabetes indicator) (A) (R) (R). 

The A (minor) allele is associated with:

  • Higher expression of insulin receptors in prostate tumors (makes tumors more aggressive) (R). 

  • Higher prostate cancer risk (R). 

  • Higher risk of Type 2 Diabetes in obese patients (R). 

The G (major) allele is associated with:

  • Higher BMI levels (white women) (R).

Disease/Trait: Adiponectin Measurement

The G allele of rs17366568 is reported to be associated with Adiponectin Measurement (R) . Your genotype was not identified for this SNP so we are unable to comment on your association with Adiponectin levels.

Disease/Trait: Blood Protein Measurement

rs17366568 is associated with Blood Protein Measurement . It is reported to have a 0.2953 unit decrease on Blood protein levels (EA, Adiponectin). No specific risk allele was identified in the study.
