Abstract OBJECTIVE: Resistin is an adipocyte-secreted cytokine associated with insulin resistance in mice. We previously reported that the G/G genotype of a resistin single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) at -420 increases type 2 diabetes susceptibility by enhancing its promoter activity. The aim of the present study was to determine the relevance of SNP -120 in a large number of subjects. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We examined 2,610 type 2 diabetic case and 2,502 control subjects. The relation between SNP -420 and the age of type 2 diabetes onset was further analyzed by adding 237 type 2 diabetic subjects with age of onset or=40 years (G/G vs. C/C, P = 0.003). In a total of 2,430 type 2 diabetic subjects with age of onset <60 years, the trend test showed that the G/G genotype had an increasing linear trend as the age grade of type 2 diabetes onset became younger (P = 0.0379). In control subjects, the frequency of C/G genotype showed an increasing linear trend with increasing age (P = 0.010). CONCLUSIONS: The G/G genotype frequency of resistin SNP -420 appears to be increased in younger-onset type 2 diabetic subjects.
