ARL15

ARL15

A gene on chromosome 5p15.2 that encodes a GTP-binding protein, which participates in small GTPase-mediated signal transduction.

Two significant SNPs were found in the ARL15 gene on chromosome 21, which encodes the ADP-ribosylation factor-like 15.
A GWAS revealed variants in ARL15 that influence adiponectin levels involved in fatty acid breakdown (Richards et al.
This region has ARL15 genes related to two significant SNPs.
Among the regions identified by the international research team are two, near the genes ARL15 and RREB1, that also show strong links to elevated levels of insulin and glucose in the body - two key characteristics of type 2 diabetes.
However, at one location, near the gene ARL15, researchers previously linked a gene variant with a higher risk of coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes via levels of adiponectin, a hormone involved in glucose regulation.
