Resistin has been implicated in the pathogenesis of obesity-mediated insulin resistance and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). A
diversity of SNP?s has been identified in the Retn gene and found to be associated with obesity and T2DM. The present study was
undertaken to investigate the association between intron 2 variant in the Retn gene at position +299(G>A) and the levels of resistin,
glucose and insulin in three groups of subjects (normal, obese and obese diabetic). The obtained results showed no significant difference
in the genotype and allele frequencies distribution between obese, obese diabetic and normal. We conclude that the +299(G>A) Retn
gene polymorphism is not involved in the pathogenesis of Diabetes and obesity in Lebanese subjects.
