      Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified more than 80 susceptibility loci for type 2 diabetes (T2D), but most of its heritability still remains to be elucidated. In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis ...
    • A low frequency variant within the GWAS locus of MTNR1B affects fasting glucose concentrations: Genetic risk is modulated by obesity 

      Been, L.F.; Hatfield, J.L.; Shankar, A.; Aston, C.E.; Ralhan, S.; Wander, G.S.; Mehra, N.K.; Singh, J.R.; Mulvihill, J.J.; Sanghera, D.K. (2012)
      Two common variants (rs1387153, rs10830963) in MTNR1B have been reported to have independent effects on fasting blood glucose (FBG) levels with increased risk to type 2 diabetes (T2D) in recent genome-wide association ...
