No significant associations were found between serum levels of total cholesterol, HDL-c, or LDL-c with the CNVs in the genes or intergenic regions analyzed.
Several studies have reported that mutations in the genes encoding leptin (LEP) and its receptor (LEPR) have been associated with hyperphagia and morbid obesity [27, 28].
The results show that the variants in the genes
coding for functional kidney proteins have little clinical relevance in INS while variants in genes involved in glucocorticoid metabolism show marginal association with INS.
