LUIS, Daniel A. de et al. Relation of variant rs180077 of gen cholesterol ester transfer protein variant, with fat mass, HDL-cholesterol in obese subjects with diabetes mellitus type 2. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.6, pp.1328-1332. ISSN 1699-5198.

Background: There is few evidence of cholesterol ester transfer protein (CETP) in subjects with obesity and diabetes mellitus. Objectives: We examined the association of the polymorphism (rs1800777) of CETP gene on anthropometric parameters, lipid profile and adipokines in subjects with obesity and diabetes mellitus type 2. Material and methods: A population of 229 obese subjects with diabetes mellitus type 2 was enrolled. An electrical bioimpedance, blood pressure, dietary intake, exercise and biochemical analyses were recorded. Results: Two hundred and seventeen subjects (94.8%) had genotype GG and 12 GA (5.2%) (genotype AA was not detected). Weight (delta: 14.4 ± 2.1 kg, p = 0.01), body mass index (delta: 2.2 ± 1.1 kg/m2, p = 0.01), fat mass (delta: 11.2 ± 3.1 kg, p = 0.02), waist circumference (delta: 3.9 ± 2.0 cm, p = 0.02), waist to hip ratio (delta: 0.04 ± 0.02 cm; p = 0.01), tryglicerides (delta: 48.6 ± 9.1 mg / dl, p = 0.03) and leptin levels (delta: 58.6 ± 15.9 mg/dl, p = 0.02) were higher in A allele carriers than non A allele carriers. Levels of HDL-cholesterol were lower in A allele carriers than non-carriers (delta: 5.6 ± 1.1 mg/dl, p = 0.03). In regression analysis, HDl cholesterol, weight and fat mass remained in the model with the SNP. Conclusion: Our results show an association of this CETP variant at position +82 on HDL cholesterol, levels and adiposity parameters in obese subjects with diabetes mellitus type 2.
