Obesity-Related Genetic Variants and their Associations with Physical Activity.
Providence, United States. In Sports Med Open, 2014
Due to the pleiotropic effects of related phenotypes, we tested six of these obesity-related genetic variants for their association with physical activity: fat mass and obesity-associated (FTO)(rs9939609)T>A, potassium channel tetramerization domain containing (KCTD15) (rs11084753)G>A, melanocortin receptor4 (MC4R)(rs17782313)T>C, neuronal growth regulator 1 (NEGR1)(rs2815752)A>G, SH2B adapter protein 1 (SH2B1)(rs7498665)A>G, and transmembrane protein18 (TMEM18)(rs6548238)C>T.
Cullin 3 Recognition Is Not a Universal Property among KCTD Proteins.
Napoli, Italy. In Plos One, 2014
In order to gain new insights into KCTD functionality, we here evaluated and/or quantified the binding of Cul3 to the BTB of KCTD proteins, which are known to be involved either in cullin-independent (KCTD12 and KCTD15) or in cullin-mediated (KCTD6 and KCTD11) activities.
Characterizing gene-gene interactions in a statistical epistasis network of twelve candidate genes for obesity.
United States. In Biodata Min, 2014
In this study, we aimed to analyze pairwise interactions that are associated with Body Mass Index (BMI) between SNPs from twelve genes robustly associated with obesity (BDNF, ETV5, FAIM2, FTO, GNPDA2, KCTD15, MC4R, MTCH2, NEGR1, SEC16B, SH2B1, and TMEM18).
Association of adenovirus 36 infection with obesity-related gene variants in adolescents.
Praha, Czech Republic. In Physiol Res, 2014
Genotyping of ten gene variants (in/near TMEM18, SH2B1, KCTD15, PCSK1, BDNF, SEC16B, MC4R, FTO) and analysis of Adv36 antibodies was performed in 1,027 Czech adolescents aged 13.0-17.9
Obesity gene NEGR1 associated with white matter integrity in healthy young adults.
Los Angeles, United States. In Neuroimage, 2014
Here we aim to see whether variants in obesity-associated genes--NEGR1, FTO, MTCH2, MC4R, LRRN6C, MAP2K5, FAIM2, SEC16B, ETV5, BDNF-AS, ATXN2L, ATP2A1, KCTD15, and TNN13K--are associated with white matter microstructural properties, assessed by high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI) in young healthy adults between 20 and 30 years of age from the Queensland Twin Imaging study (QTIM).
[Impact of obesity-related gene polymorphism on risk of obesity and metabolic disorder in childhood].
Beijing, China. In Zhonghua Yu Fang Yi Xue Za Zhi, 2014
A total of 11 single nucleotide polymorphisms were genotyped by TaqMan allelic discrimination assays with the GeneAmp 7900 sequence detection system (Applied Biosystems, Foster City, CA, USA) (FTO rs9939609, MC4R rs17782313, GNPDA2 rs10938397, FAIM2 rs7138803, BDNF rs6265, NPC1 rs1805081, PCSK1 rs6235, KCTD15 rs29941, BAT2 rs2844479, SEC16B rs10913469 and SH2B1 rs4788102).
