Objective: In the present study, we evaluated the association of rs662799 variant of the APOA5 gene with Metabolic syndrome (MetS) in a sample of children and adolescents from Isfahan.Methods: This case control study comprised 50 cases of MetS and 50 controls. Mismatched polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism (mPCR-RFLP) was used to genotype -1131T>C polymorphism.Findings: No significant association was documented for APOA5 genotypes with the measured laboratory parameters for CC, CT, and TT genotypes in the two groups studied. By logistic regression using a dominant model, the odds ratio (95% confidence interval0 for the MetS was 0.38 (0.139–1.0350 and 0.29 (0.08–1.071 for the unadjusted and adjusted models, respectively.Conclusion: This study suggests that among studied children and adolescents, -1131T>C polymorphism in the APOA5 gene may not be a major contributor to the MetS risk.
