Twelve previously described NOS3 gene variants were genotyped (16).
Because metabolic syndrome is defined by the clustering of at least 3 metabolic disorders among 5, we looked at the relationship between NOS3 gene variants and each of the features of the metabolic syndrome separately.
For the NOS3 IVS11-30 SNP, the prevalence of the AA genotype was greater in individuals with insulin resistance determined by HOMA-IR compared with those without insulin resistance (36.
We report association between variation at the NOS3 gene locus and features of the metabolic syndrome in a Spanish population.
The difference in % DNA methylation in NOS2A and NOS3 per 5 [micro]g/[m.
5] was consistently and significantly associated with DNA methylation levels in NOS genes, primarily NOS2A and NOS3.
Regulation of NOS3 is similar to that of NOS2A in that increased DNA methylation in the promoter is associated with decreased promoter activity (Chan Y et al.
Several lines of evidence indicate a significant association between mutations of the NOS3 gene and cardiovascular disease (10,11), with discrepant findings possibly related to racial differences (12,13).
14) identified a NOS3 gene polymorphism in the 5' flanking region (T786C) that was significantly associated with coronary spasm (14).
Conflicting reports have been published on the relationship between the polymorphism in exon 7 of the NOS3 gene that causes the Glu298Asp polymorphism in eNOS and carotid atheroma, although differences in population selection may account for the variability (15,16).
Our findings suggest that homozygosity for C in the T786C polymorphism of NOS3 is associated with ICA stenosis, especially in patients with ulceration, the latter being a major indicator of plaque instability.
