Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the Human Hemochromatosis (HFE) gene, C282Y and H63D, are the major variants associated to altered iron status and it is well known that these mutations are in linkage disequilibrium with certain Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA)-A alleles. In addition, the C282Y SNP has been previously suggested to confer(More)
OBJECTIVE To select individuals whose morbid obesity can be attributed mainly to their individual genetic profile. After excluding patients with potential monogenic syndromes or diseases associated with obesity, we evaluated the association of the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs1861868 and rs9939609 of the fat-mass and obesity-associated FTO gene(More)
