Interaction Information:

Comment In a multistage genome-wide association study of type 2 diabetes mellitus in Japanese individuals, ten SNPs were identified. The most significant association was obtained with SNPs in KCNQ1, rs2237892 in intron 15 showed the lowest Pvalue. The association of KCNQ1 with type 2 diabetes was replicated in populations of Korean, Chinese and European ancestry as well as in two independent Japanese populations. Among control subjects, the risk allele of this polymorphism was associated with impairment of insulin secretion.
