Sammanfattning

Genome linkage scans and candidate gene studies have implicated the pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) locus in traits related to food intake, metabolic function, and body mass index. Here we investigate single nucleotide polymorphisms at the POMC locus in order to evaluate the influence of its genetic variance on body fat distribution and diet in a sample of middle-aged men from The Netherlands. 366 Dutch males from the Hamlet cohort were asked detailed questions about food choice, nutrient intake and exercise. Furthermore, their weight and body fat composition were measured. Each cohort member was genotyped for a set of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the POMC locus. Regression analysis, adjusted for several covariates, was used to test for the association between genetic variants and the phenotypes measured. POMC variation was associated with waist:hip ratio, visceral fat and abdominal fat (rs6713532, P=0.020, 0.019, and 0.021, respectively), and nutrient choice (rs1042571, P=0.034), but in light of limited power and multiple testing these results should be taken with caution. POMC is a strong candidate for involvement in appetite regulation as supported by animal, physiological, and genetic studies and variation at the POMC locus may affect an individual's energy intake which in turn leads to variation in body composition and body fat.
