Contributions of Renin-Angiotensin System-Related Gene Interactions to Obesity in a Chinese Population

BACKGROUND Gene-gene interactions may be partly responsible for complex traits such as obesity. Increasing evidence suggests that the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) contributes to the etiology of obesity. How the epistasis of genes in the RAS contributes to obesity is still under research. We aim to evaluate the contribution of RAS-related gene interactions… CONTINUE READING
