Lack of association between UBE2E2 gene polymorphism (rs7612463) and type 2 diabetes mellitus in a Saudi population

Title variants
Languages of publication
The ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2E 2 (UBE2E2) gene plays an important role in insulin synthe­sis and secretion under conditions in which stress to the endoplasmic reticu­lum is increased in β-cells. In this case-control study, we have selected rs7612462 polymorphism within UBE2E2 gene to identify in a Saudi population the type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) subjects. In total, 376 subjects with T2DM and 380 controls were enrolled in this study. We have collected 5 mL of peripheral blood from each participant for biochemical and molecular analyses. PCR-RFLP was used to generate genotypes at rs7612462 in all of the study subjects. Clinical data and anthropometric measurements of the patients were significantly different from those of the controls (p<0.05). All of the subjects used in this study were non-obese (25
