Mechanism:

  • Decreased adiponectin production (G)

The G (minor) allele is associated with:

  • A greater chance of artery plaque buildup in African Americans (AG/GG) (R). 

  • Obesity (R)

  • Increased risk of type 2 diabetes in obese patients (R). 

  • Increased risk of kidney damage caused by type 2 diabetes (R). 

The A (major) allele is associated with:

  • Elevated BMI (Mexican test subjects) (R).
