OBJECTIVE: Proximal chromosome 10q26 was recently linked to waist/hip ratio in European and African-American families. The objective was to investigate whether genomic variation in chromosome 10q26.11 reflects variation in obesity-related clinical parameters in a Swedish population. DESIGN: Genetic association study of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in chromosome 10q26.11 and obesity-related clinical parameters was performed. Obesity was defined as body mass index (BMI)≥30 kg/m2. SUBJECTS: Swedish Caucasians comprising 276 obese and 480 nonobese men, 313 obese and 494 nonobese women, 177 obese and 163 nonobese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and 106 obese and 201 nonobese subjects with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) patients. MEASUREMENTS: Genotypes of 11 SNPs at chromosome 10q26.11, and various obesity-related clinical parameters. RESULTS: Homozygosity of a common haplotype constructed by three SNPs, rs2185937, rs1797 and hCV1402327, covering an interval of 2.7 kb, was suggested to confer an increased risk for obesity of 1.5 among men (P=0.043). The C allele frequency and homozygous genotype frequency of the rs1797 tended to be higher among obese compared to among nonobese men (P=0.017 and 0.020, respectively). The distribution of BMI and diastolic blood pressure was higher among those with the C/C genotype (P=0.022 and 0.0061, respectively). The obese and the nonobese groups were homogeneous over BMI subgroups with regard to rs1797 risk genotype distribution. There was no tendency for association between rs1797 and obesity among neither women nor T2DM nor IGT patients. CONCLUSION: We show support for association between proximal chromosome 10q26.11 and obesity among Swedish men but not women through the analysis of a haplotype encompassing 2.7 kb. © 2005 Nature Publishing Group All rights reserved.
