Gene located for rare fat disorder

ed with insulin resistance, we hope to be able to learn more about common types of obesity, such as truncal obesity and how it leads to insulin resistance, diabetes and lipid problems."

The UT Southwestern researchers last year located the gene for another form of lipodystrophy - familial partial lipodystrophy - on chromosome 1.

Other researchers in the study include UT Southwestern Center for Human Genetics colleagues Ross Wilson, a research associate, and Robert Barnes, a research analyst; Dr. Elif Arioglu and Dr. Simeon Taylor of the NIH; Dr. Zohra Zaidi of Zinnah Postgraduate Medical Center in Karachi, Pakistan; Dr. Figen Gurakah and Dr. Nurten Kocak of Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine in Turkey; and Dr. Stephan O'Rahilly of the University of Cambridge in England.

Garg will continue researching both forms of lipodystrophy with the aid of a four-year NIH grant he was awarded in the spring.

Grants from the NIH, the National Center for Research Resources, the General Clinical Research Center at UT Southwestern and Southwestern Medical Foundation supported the research.
