Background and Aim: The normal plasma fatty acid (FA) composition changes in hypertriglyceridemic obese and overweight indiuviduals. The objective of this study was to determine the plasma fatty acid composition in hypertriglyceridemic obese or overweight subjects with different FABP2 genotypes.

Methods and Materials: Forty-six hypertriglyceridemic subjects (33 men and 13 women, 25-60 years old) referred to the Endocrinology and Metabolism Research Center (EMRC), Shariaty Hospital in Thehran, between Mehr and Esfand 1386 (September 2007-March 2008), were genotyped for FABP2 polymorphism by PCR-RFLP. In addition, their blood lipid profile was determind enzymetically, photometrically and immunoturbidometrically, and their plasma fatty acid composition by gas-choromatography. Also, body weights and heights were measured and body mass index calculated.

Results: Positive associations were observed between Thr54 polymorphism in FABP2 protein and plasma lipid fractions (SFA, PUFA, ω-6-, ω-3- and total fatty acids (P<0.001 )). No significant differences were observed between PPARα polymorphism and plasma fatty acid composition, except for ω-3 fatty acids,

Conclusion: In obese or overweight hypertriglyceridemic subjects the plasma fatty acid compositions are different. The levels of some fatty acids are higher, while those of some others are lower, in different FABP2 genotypes. On the whole, higher levels of SFA, PUFA, ω-6, ω-3, and total fatty acids were more pronounced in Thr54- than in Ala54-carrieres.
