BACKGROUND Fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO) has been associated with obesity, especially the common variant rs9939609. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine-metabolic disorder and over 50% of patients are overweight/obese. Thus FTO is a potential candidate gene for PCOS but their relationship is confusing and remains to be(More)

BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine-metabolic disorder. A previous genome-wide association study (GWAS) identified five single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) which were independently associated with PCOS in Han Chinese. To overcome population stratification, a family-based analysis was conducted to validate whether these five(More)
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex multifactor disorder and genetic factors have been implicated in its pathogenesis. Our previous genome-wide association study (GWAS) had identified allele frequencies in several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in gene USP34 (Ubiquitin-Specific Protease 34) were significantly different between(More)
