Abstract: ABSTRACTObjective: To investigate the relationship of short tandem repeats (STR) near genes involved in the leptin-melanocortin pathway with body mass index (BMI) and leptinemia. Subjects and methods: Anthropometric variables and leptinemia were measured in 100 obese and 110 nonobese individuals. D1S200, D2S1788, DS11912, and D18S858 loci were analyzed by PCR and high-resolution electrophoresis. Results: Overall STR allele frequencies were similar between the obese and non-obese group (p > 0.05). Individual a…
