Background: obesity is the major health problems affecting communities worldwide and the prevalence is rapidly rising. Obesity as a lifestyle-related factor increases the risk of many diseases. Omentin is a new adipocytokine that is abundantly expressed in visceral fat tissue and its expression levels reversely correlated with obesity. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between Val109Asp genetic polymorphism of Omentin gene and obesity risk in women. Methods: This case - control study was done on 260 women, including 186 women with BMI<30 as a control group and 74 women with BMI&ge30 with obesity. Omentin genotypes were determined by the use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) followed by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP). The data were analyzed using the computer software SPSS for windows version17. Results: Genotype frequencies of the Asp/Asp, Asp/Val and Val/Val in the control group were 65.6%, 31.7%, 2.7% and obese patients were 51.4%, 39.2%, 9.5%, respectively. Comparison of genotype frequencies in the two groups showed that women with Val/Val genotype in compare to Asp/Asp had greater risk for complications of obesity (OR: 4.5, 95%CI: 1.3-14.9, P: 0.01). Conclusion: There is significant association between Val109Asp polymorphism in omentin gene and obesity in Iranian women.
