The uncoupling protein (UCP) family has been suggested as a possible determinant affecting obesity risk given their function in the regulation of energy metabolism. In an effort to elucidate the effects of UCP family polymorphisms on obesity phenotypes, we genotyped 10 polymorphisms in UCP2 and UCP3 among overweight female subjects (n= 458), and genetic effects on BMI and changes after a very low calorie diet (VLCD) were examined. Analyses of VLCD-induced changes among the subjects who had finished one month …
