We propose the following to describe effects of human delta-sarcoglycan (SGCD) variation on sympathetic and cardio-metabolic traits. SGCD variation alters expression, major allele A to minor allele G, augmenting sympathochromaffin norepinephrine (NE) and CHGB release. Increased plasma NE negatively impacts systemic vascular compliance, while mobilizing free fatty acids. Common variation gives rise to phenotypic consequences and without apparent myocardial involvement.
