Fat Mass and Obesity-Associated gene (FTO)
FTO gene variations are proven to be associated with high BMI and increased tendency for over-eating.
Beta-2 Adrenergic Receptor gene (ADRB2)
ADRB2 gene is involved in the mobilization of fat energy production and certain variations can lead to obesity. It is also associated with the development of type 2 diabetes
Beta-3 Adrenergic Receptor gene (ADRB3)
ADRB3 gene is involved in the regulation of lipolysis and thermogenesis.
Apolipoprotein A-II gene (APOA2)
Apoa2 gene codes for the protein which is involved in transportation of fats and cholesterol in blood.
Neuromedin B gene (NMB)
NMB gene is involved in the control of food intake.
Melanocortin 4 Receptor gene (MC4R)
MC4R gene is associated with autosomal dominant obesity and appetite control.
Lactose Intolerance gene
Variations in this gene is leading to the lack of ability to digest lactose which is the sugar found in milk and other dairy products.
HLA genes are known to contribute in regulation of the immune system and risk of developing celiac disease.
