Variability of the amount of chromosomal Q-heterochromatin regions (Q-HRs) was studied in individuals with alimentary obesity and in controls from two ethnic groups living in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. It was shown that obese individuals differ from controls in the extremely low amount of Q-HRs in their genome. The question as to the possible role of the amount of Q-HRs in the genome in the susceptibility of man to the development of alimentary obesity is discussed.
