Sample text

Indd 24 measured and gives a global indication of the amount of cDNA present in the test sample relative to that in the reference sample. For example, the test material can be fluorescence labelled with a red tag and the control material with a green tag. If expression of a certain gene is similar in the test and reference samples, a yellow signal will appear. The final step is to interpret the expression profiles for which computer software is available. Likewise, arrays exist that measure gene expression levels of one sample at a time.

Mutations/polymorphisms in the promoter region will not necessarily affect the composition of the protein, but may affect its production. In contrast, mutations in an exon may not affect the production, but can change the composition and consequently the structure or activity of a protein. However, it is also possible that mutations in introns are associated with dietary responses. In such cases, it is very likely that this mutation is in linkage disequilibrium or associated with another functional genetic variation that is directly responsible for the effect observed.

These findings suggest that only overweight subjects with this Gly972Arg variant would benefit from weight loss with respect to improved insulin sensitivity. It should be noted that this interaction with obesity has not been observed in all studies. 677C–T polymorphism of methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase Increased levels of plasma homocysteine, a sulphurcontaining amino acid, are associated with an increased risk of various disorders such as neural tube defects, thrombotic disease and vascular disease.
