FTO gene associated fatness in relation to body fat distribution and metabolic traits throughout a broad range of fatness
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
A common single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of FTO (rs9939609, T/A) is associated with total body fatness. We investigated the association of this SNP with abdominal and peripheral fatness and obesity-related metabolic traits in middle-aged men through a broad range of fatness present already in adolescence.
