    • Low-frequency and rare exome chip variants associate with fasting ​glucose and type 2 diabetes susceptibility 

      Wessel, Jennifer; Chu, Audrey Y; Willems, Sara Marie; Wang, Shuai; Yaghootkar, Hanieh; Brody, Jennifer A; Dauriz, Marco et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-01-29)
      Fasting ​glucose and ​insulin are intermediate traits for type 2 diabetes. Here we explore the role of coding variation on these traits by analysis of variants on the HumanExome BeadChip in 60,564 non-diabetic individuals ...
    • No interactions between previously associated 2-hour glucose gene variants and physical activity or BMI on 2-hour glucose levels. 

      Scott, Robert; Chu, Audrey Y; Grarup, Niels; Manning, Alisa K; Hivert, Marie-France; Shungin, Dmitry; Tönjes, Anke et al. (2012-05)
    • Novel genetic loci associated with long-term deterioration in blood lipid concentrations and coronary artery disease in European adults. 

      Varga, Tibor V; Kurbasic, Azra; Aine, Mattias; Eriksson, Pontus; Ali, Ashfaq; Hindy, George; Gustafsson, Stefan et al. (2017-08)
      BACKGROUND: Cross-sectional genome-wide association studies have identified hundreds of loci associated with blood lipids and related cardiovascular traits, but few genetic association studies have focused on long-term ...
    • Novel loci for adiponectin levels and their influence on type 2 diabetes and metabolic traits: a multi-ethnic meta-analysis of 45,891 individuals. 

      Dastani, Zari; Hivert, Marie-France; Timpson, Nicholas; Perry, John Richard; Yuan, Xin; Scott, Robert; Henneman, Peter et al. (2012-01)
    • Physical activity attenuates the influence of FTO variants on obesity risk: a meta-analysis of 218,166 adults and 19,268 children. 

      Kilpeläinen, Tuomas O; Qi, Lu; Brage, Soren; Sharp, Stephen John; Sonestedt, Emily; Demerath, Ellen; Ahmad, Tariq et al. (2011-11)
    • Protein-altering variants associated with body mass index implicate pathways that control energy intake and expenditure in obesity. 

      Turcot, Valérie; Lu, Yingchang; Highland, Heather M; Schurmann, Claudia; Justice, Anne E; Fine, Rebecca S; Bradfield, Jonathan P et al. (Springer Nature, 2018-01)
      Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified >250 loci for body mass index (BMI), implicating pathways related to neuronal biology. Most GWAS loci represent clusters of common, non-coding variants from which ...
    • Sequence data and association statistics from 12,940 type 2 diabetes cases and controls. 

      Flannick, Jason; Fuchsberger, Christian; Mahajan, Anubha; Teslovich, Tanya M; Agarwala, Vineeta; Gaulton, Kyle J; Caulkins, Lizz et al. (Springer Nature, 2017-12-19)

    • Total zinc intake may modify the glucose-raising effect of a zinc transporter (SLC30A8) variant: a 14-cohort meta-analysis. 

      Kanoni, Stavroula; Nettleton, Jennifer A; Hivert, Marie-France; Ye, Zheng; van Rooij, Frank JA; Shungin, Dmitry; Sonestedt, Emily et al. (2011-09)
    • Trans-ancestry meta-analyses identify rare and common variants associated with blood pressure and hypertension 

      Surendran, Praveen; Drenos, Fotios; Young, Robin; Warren, Helen; Cook, James P; Manning, Alisa K; Grarup, Niels et al. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09-12)
      High blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and premature death. However, there is limited knowledge on specific causal genes and pathways. To better understand the genetics of blood pressure, we ...
    • ω-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Biomarkers and Coronary Heart Disease 

      Del, Gobbo Liana C; Imamura, Fumiaki; Aslibekyan, Stella; Marklund, Matti; Virtanen, Jyrki K; Wennberg, Maria; Yakoob, Mohammad Y et al. (American Medical Association, 2016-06-27)
      Importance The role of ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids for primary prevention of coronary heart disease (CHD) remains controversial. Most prior longitudinal studies evaluated self-reported consumption rather than ...
