Abstract [en]

Background: The interaction of the PPARγ Pro12Ala with obesity and cardiovascular risk is controversial. We aimed to study potential associations of the Ala isoform of this polymorphism with obesity, blood pressure and markers of cardiovascular disease and organ damage in middle aged patients with type 2 diabetes.

Subjects and methods: We recruited 148 women and 246 men in the CArdiovascular Risk factors in Patients with DIabetes – a Prospective study in the Primary health care setting (CARDIPP) study in which early markers of organ damage by cardiac echocardiography, determination of carotid intima media thickness (IMT) and measurement of pulse wave velocity (PWV) was performed. Blood pressures were measured as both as 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure and as a noninvasive recording of central blood pressure. Allelic discrimination was detected with the ABI prism 7500HT Sequence Detection System. Due to the low prevalence of Ala homozygotes, heterozygotes and homozygotes of Ala were defined as Ala isoform in the analyses.

Results: Men with Ala isoform exhibited higher sagittal abdominal diameter (Pro: 25.4±3.4 cm, Ala: 26.7±4.9 cm, p= 0.04) waist circumference (Pro: 104±11 cm, Ala: 108±15 cm, p= 0.046) and body weight (Pro: 91.6±14, Ala: 96.5±18, p= 0.035) than homozygotes for the Pro isoform. However, there were no differences in either gender with respect to blood pressures, left-ventricular mass-index, carotid IMT or carotid-femoral PWV in the participants.

Conclusion: It is unlikely that determination of the PPARγ Pro12Ala isoform in clinic practice adds any major information on cardiovascular risk or circulatory organ damage in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Abstract [en]

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions worldwide and is associated with insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. During the past decades, substantial evidence has demonstrated that not only the amount of adipose tissue constitutes a major determinant in the development of metabolic disorders, but also the distribution. The visceral adipose tissue has shown to be stronger correlated with insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease than the subcutaneous depot. When we measured the activity of the nuclear receptor PPARγ in visceral and subcutaneous adipocytes, we found considerably lower activity in fat cells obtained from the visceral portion. This finding provides additional evidence to the unfavorable consequences of visceral obesity. The common PPARγ polymorphism Pro12Ala was studied in type 2 diabetic patients. We found that men with the Ala isoform exhibited higher sagittal abdominal diameter, waist circumference and body weight compared with homozygotes for the Pro isoform. However, no differences in either gender with regard to blood pressure or markers of cardiovascular disease and organ damage could be observed.

In addition to an excessive visceral adipose tissue mass, obese subjects with enlarged adipocytes display an increased risk for developing metabolic disorders compared with individuals exhibiting smaller fat cells but a similar degree of adiposity. The insulin responsiveness in small and large adipocytes obtained from the same subject was examined. Upon insulin stimulation, we found approximately a 2 fold increase of GLUT4 at the plasma membrane in small adipocytes, whereas the large fat cells were refractory to insulin induced GLUT4 translocation. This finding demonstrates a causal relationship between the accumulation of large fat cells in obese subjects and reduced insulin responsiveness.

Caloric restriction in humans ameliorates insulin responsiveness in liver and muscle prior to any substantial weight loss. By combining gene expression profiles of adipose tissue and adipocytes from human subjects undergoing either caloric restriction or overfeeding, we identified genes regulated by changes in caloric intake independent of weight loss per se. We found several genes under the control of mTOR and SREBP1 as well as genes involved in β-oxidation, liberation of fatty acids and glyceroneogenesis to be regulated during the interventions. These genes may indicate pathways and mechanisms mediating the effects of nutrient deprivation and obesity on morbidity and mortality.
