This SNP is in a linkage block in the FTO gene with rs1121980; see rs1121980 for the association of this block with early onset obesity since it showed the strongest association.[type-2 diabetes or any other related traits in a study of 3,210 Chinese subjects. Furthermore, the minor allele frequency was much lower in Chinese populations compared to populations of European descent.[type-2 diabetes and obesity .[PMID 20057365]

 

The 'C' allele is associated with:

  • Increased weight-loss benefits from exercising [R]
    • "carriers of the C-allele showed three times greater fat mass and %body fat losses than the A/A homozygotes."
