    OBJECTIVE:β-adrenergic receptors (βARs) play an important role in the regulation of energy expenditure and lipid mobilization. A GI-27Glu polymorphism in the β[sub 2]-adrenergic receptor (β[sub 2]AR) gene has recently been associated with several indices of obesity in a female...

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate the impact of two common polymorphisms in the human β[sub 2]-adrenoceptor gene (Gly16Arg and GIn27Glu substitutions) on obesity and anthropometric measurements as well as blood variables in a large sample of a French population. DESIGN AND SUBJECTS: Within the...

    Aim: To examine the association between the risk of obesity and the Trp64Arg polymorphism of the β[sub 3] -adrenergic receptor gene. Methods: A case-control study was conducted. The case series encompassed 159 subjects with a body mass index >30 kg/m[sup 2] (obesity) and no other major...

    BACKGROUND:: The Glu27Glu genotype in the beta-2-adrenergic receptor (ADRB2) is associated with fat mass, body mass index and obesity in females. In our population, we previously found an association of higher body mass index (BMI) among women who reported more physical activity and carried the...

    BACKGROUND: Serum leptin is associated with the occurrence of cardiovascular risk factors but it is unknown whether leptin is also associated with cardiovascular disease. Another open question is whether the Trp64Arg polymorphism of the β[sub 3]-adrenergic receptor (β[sub 3]-AR) is a...

    Objectives: Previous association studies suggested that common polymorphisms of the beta-2 adrenoreceptor gene leading to glycine for arginine substitution at position 16 or glutamic acid for glutamine substitution at position 27 affect blood pressure. We reasoned that measurements of resting...
