Recently, large-scaled studies suggested a negative association of the infrequent allele of the melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) V103I polymorphism with obesity. We conducted a Chinese case-control study, meta-analysis in East Asians and in all populations, in order to further assess the association between the V103I polymorphism and reduced body weight and to explore whether the association varies among different ethnic groups. We conducted a case-control study to analyze this polymorphism in 2… CONTINUE READING
