The Ala54Thr polymorphism of the fatty acid–binding protein 2 gene is associated with a change in insulin sensitivity after a change in the type of dietary fat
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
Insulin resistance, a condition associated with type 2 diabetes, results from the interaction of environmental and genetic factors. Objective: We examined the influence of the intestinal fatty acidbinding protein 2 (FABP2) Ala54Thr polymorphism on insulin sensitivity. Design: Fifty-nine healthy young subjects (28 were Ala54/Ala54, 27 were Ala54/Thr54, and 4 were Thr54/Thr54) completed 3 diets, each of which lasted 4 wk. The first diet, which all subjects consumed, was a high-saturated fattydoi:10.1093/ajcn/82.1.196 pmid:16002819 fatcat:wpjuihnkcffpvhygbhwmdcged4
