Associations between a single nucleotide polymorphism of the FTO Gene (rs9939609) and obesity-related characteristics over time during puberty in a Dutch children cohort.


BACKGROUND The influence of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) of the FTO gene has been shown to change over time. OBJECTIVE The aim was to investigate the relationship between a SNP of the FTO gene (rs9939609) and obesity-related characteristics longitudinally during childhood and puberty. DESIGN From 101 children (58 boys and 43 girls), the FTO… (More)
