Figure 1

Estimated effects of Gly482Ser SNP on BMI. The solid circles represent the estimate and the whiskers represent the standard errors around each estimate. Estimates were obtained from a linear regression model assuming codominance of the risk allele with age and sex as covariates. In the analysis involving both populations, "population" was also included as a covariate.
