BACKGROUND Recently, a genome-wide association study identified a strong association between the fat mass- and obesity-associated rs9939609 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and the risk of obesity in European population. However, the results in Chinese population were reported to be contradictory. Therefore, our aim was to examine whether this SNP is associated with obesity and newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes (T2D) in Chinese population. METHODS We genotyped rs9939609 in 2587 subjects… CONTINUE READING
