Gender-specific associations of genetic variants with metabolic syndrome components in the Tunisian population.

AIM OF THE STUDY Recent genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have identified many genetic variants associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS). However, their contribution to MetS in ethnic groups in Tunisia is largely unexplored. In this study, we aim to examine the associations of related loci with a risk of metabolic syndrome in a sample of Tunisians… (More)
