To probe the candidate susceptibility gene (s) of type 2 diabetes in the formal mapping region, 1p36.33-p36.23, in Han people of Northern China using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).


23 SNPs located in 10 candidate genes in the mapping region were chosen from public SNP domain by bioinformatic methods and single base extension (SBE) method were used to genotype the loci in 192 sporadic type 2 diabetes patients and 172 normal individuals to perform case-control study.


Among the 23 SNPs, 8 were found to be common in Chinese population. There were statistically different in the allele frequency of 2 SNP, rs436045 in the protein kinase C/xi gene and rs228648 in Urotensin II gene between case and control groups.


The two SNP may be associated with type 2 diabetes in Han people of China, which makes base for further study of the relation between the genes they located with type 2 diabetes.
