Abstract Uncoupling protein-1 (UCP-1) plays a major role in thermogenesis, and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of obesity and metabolic disorders. The purpose of this study was to estimate the effects of A-3826G polymorphism of the UCP-1 gene on the plasma lipid profiles in 190 Korean obese subjects with a body mass index (BMI) more than 30 kg/m 2. Height, weight, BMI, wait-to-hip ratio (WHR), obesity index, and body composition were measured and genotype of UCP-1 was analyzed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) …
