Here we tested the hypothesis that variation of the UCP3 promoter is associated with either juvenile or maturity-onset obesity or body weight change over a 26-yr follow-up among Danish subjects. Mutation screening of approximately 1 kb 5' upstream of the UCP3 gene revealed one previously described -55 C-->T variant. The frequency of the polymorphism was evaluated by restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis in four groups of subjects: 1) a group of 744 obese Danish men who at the draft board examinations had a body mass index (BMI) of at least 31 kg/m(2), 2) a randomly selected control group consisting of 857 draftees, 3) 258 middle-aged subjects, and 4) 409 60-yr-old subjects. The frequency of the T allele was 26.0% (95% confidence interval, 23.8-28.2%) among the obese draftees and 26.9% (24.8-29.0%) in the control group (P = 0.6). The variant was not associated with BMI at a young age or with weight gain after a 26-yr follow-up. The frequency of the T allele was 29.5% (25.6-33.4%) in the middle-aged group and 25.8% (22.8-28.8%) among the 60-yr-old subjects. The polymorphism was not associated with increased BMI or percent body fat in these 2 groups. It is concluded that this variant does not play a major role in the development of common obesity among Danish subjects.",
