Twenty-three studies were eligible for the meta-analysis. Meta-analysis results showed that the Ala55Val polymorphism was associated with T2DM under a dominant model (OR = 1.27, 95% CI 1.03-1.57); while the -55C/T polymorphism was associated with this disease in almost all genetic models: allele contrast (OR = 1.17, 95% CI 1.02-1.34), additive (OR = 1.32, 95% CI 1.01-1.72) and dominant (OR = 1.18, 95% CI 1.02-1.37). However, after stratification by ethnicity, the UCP2 55Val and UCP3 -55C/T alleles remained associated with T2DM only in Asians (OR = 1.25, 95% CI 1.02-1.51 and OR = 1.22, 95% CI 1.04-1.44, respectively; allele contrast model). No significant association of the -3826A/G, -866G/A and Ins/Del polymorphisms with T2DM was observed. Conclusions: In our case-control study of people with European ancestry we were not able to demonstrate any association between the UCP polymorphisms and T2DM; however, our meta-analysis detected a significant association between the UCP2 Ala55Val and UCP3 -55C/T polymorphisms and increased susceptibility for T2DM in Asians.]]> Tue 26 Nov 2019 11:12:37 AEST ]]> Human pancreatic islet transplantation: An update and description of the establishment of a pancreatic islet isolation laboratory Thu 22 Aug 2019 15:47:04 AEST ]]> Effect of co-culture of mesenchymal stem/stromal cells with pancreatic islets on viability and function outcomes: a systematic review and meta-analysis Thu 22 Aug 2019 15:12:05 AEST ]]> The A allele of the UCP2 -866G/A polymorphism changes UCP2 promoter activity in HUVECs treated with high glucose Fri 01 Nov 2019 15:50:43 AEST ]]>
