Table 4 Final restricted maximum likelihood model, using pedigree-based measured genotype association, explaining variance in QTc in the LQT1 founder populations

From: Sex is a moderator of the association between NOS1AP sequence variants and QTc in two long QT syndrome founder populations: a pedigree-based measured genotype association analysis

  2. aInclusion criteria in final model p < 0.1 (interactions sex*KCNQ1 genotype and sex*age at electrocardiogram were excluded from all models, rs12143842 was not significantly associated with QTc in females (p = 0.16) and excluded from the final model, increasing age at electrocardiogram was significantly associated with a longer QTc in females only)
