Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves for models to predict MetS in the discovery stage (KARE study). (a) In KARE females, AUC measured from the ROC curve of a model comprising area, age, and female-specific GRS as predictor variables showed higher value (black) compared to those of other models adjusted with area and age (red) or with only female-GRS (green). (b) In a model comprising area, age, and female-GRS, AUC showed higher value in females (black) than in males (green) or all subjects (red)
