Mechanism:

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

The G (minor) allele is associated with:

  • Increased risk of strokes (R). 

  • Decreased risk of colon cancer (R). 

  • Increased risk of coronary artery diseases (R). 

  • Significantly associated with prostate cancer risk (R). 

  • Increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (R). 

  • Higher chance of Hypertension (R). 

The A (major) allele is associated with:

  • Higher chance of Obesity (R). 

  • Metabolic syndrome (R). 

  • Higher risk of cancer (not specified which) (R).
