From: Establishing a genetic link between FTO and VDR gene polymorphisms and obesity in the Emirati population

SNPs Gene Alleles (1 / 2) MAF Estimate SE P*
rs9939609 FTO A / T 0.416 −0.166 0.066 0.013

  1. Abbreviations- BMI Body mass index, FTO Fat mass and obesity-associated protein, VDR Vitamin D receptor, SNP Single nucleotide polymorphism, Allele 1 / 2: minor / major alleles. Genotypes with significant p < 0.05 are marked in bold. *P values are adjusted for age of subjects and their systolic blood pressure values
