Abstract

Objective: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a complex disease characterized by insulin resistance, abdominal obesity, hyperglycemia, hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia and low HDL-cholesterol level. The aim of the study was to evaluate the sequence variations in the LPIN1 gene in MetS. This gene codes lipin-1 protein which functions as Mg-dependent phosphatidic phosphatase enzyme and transcriptional coactivator.
