Mechanism:

  • Decreased production of adiponectin (C) (R). 

  • Increased levels of circulating adiponectin (A) (R). 

The C (minor) allele is associated with:

  • Increased prostate cancer risk (R). 

  • Increased risk of coronary artery disease (CC) (R). 

  • Increased risk of type 2 diabetes (R). 

  • Increased risk of colon cancer (R). 

The A (major) allele is associated with:

  • Increased levels of circulating adiponectin (R).
