Comuzzie et al. , 2000). Several candidate genes map to this region, including the APM1 gene encoding the differentiated adipocyte secreted protein ACRP30/adiponectin, which is abundantly present in the plasma. The purified C-terminal domain of adiponectin has been reported to protect mice on a high-fat diet from obesity. , 2001). , 1999). , 2001), which makes ACRP30 an attractive candidate gene for fat-induced metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Further studies will address the role of variations in the ACRP30 gene in obesity or in obesity-associated type 2 diabetes.

Measuring physical activity Self-report is unreliable, both for dietary intake and for patterns of physical activity. Instead, we have made use of little gadgets called CSA accelerometers that attach to the belt and record all movement. The data can subsequently be downloaded to display minute-by-minute patterns of physical activity during the day. These devices show that girls, in comparison with boys, have lower levels of physical activity at school (unpublished data, Department of Health Sciences, Bristol University).
