rs1501299, also known as c.276G>T, represents an intronic variant in the ADIPOQ gene on chromosome 3. It is perhaps the most studied of the common ADIPOQ gene variants; most studies report that the less common rs1501299(A) allele, as oriented in dbSNP, is associated with decreased cancer risk compared with the more common (C) allele.

? (A;A) (A;C) (C;C) 28

A study of 733 breast cancer cases for 10 SNPs concluded that the rs1501299(C;C) genotype (in dbSNP orientation) was at increased risk (odds ratio 1.80, CI: 1.14 - 2.85). After categorizing individuals by adiponectin signaling status, this study found that compared with low signalers (the most frequent), intermediate signalers had a 0.64x decrease in breast cancer risk (CI: 0.49–0.83), and high signalers had a 0.15x lower breast cancer risk (CI: 0.02–1.28, p(trend) = 0.001).[PMID 18451143OA-icon.png]

Adiponectin signaling status was assigned as follows (as oriented in dbSNP):

rs1501299(C,C) + rs2241766(T,T) = low signaler
rs1501299(A,C) + rs2241766(T,T) = low signaler
rs1501299(C,C) + rs2241766(G,T) = low signaler
rs1501299(A,A) + rs2241766(T,T) = intermediate signaler
rs1501299(A,C) + rs2241766(G,T) = intermediate signaler
rs1501299(C,C) + rs2241766(G,G) = intermediate signaler
rs1501299(A,C) + rs2241766(G,G) = high signaler
rs1501299(A,A) + rs2241766(G,G) = high signaler
rs1501299(A,A) + rs2241766(G,T) = high signaler

Based on these criteria, adiponectin signaling status is now determined by genosets Gs325 and Gs326 for Promethease users.

Note that adiponectin, a hormone produced by adipose tissue (body fat), is involved in lipid metabolism as well as glucose regulation.

In other words, you are a low adiponectin signaler, and thus have basically average breast cancer risk, if you have one of these combinations of alleles:

You are an intermediate adiponectin signaler (Gs325), and thus possibly at 0.64x reduced risk of breast cancer compared to low signallers, if you have one of these combinations of alleles:

You are a high adiponectin signaler (Gs326), and thus have the lowest (perhaps 0.15x) risk if you have one of these combinations of alleles:

This is one of the SNPs reported by NutraHacker.
