Gene RIF (12)

23879873 Rs2292462 was associated with left ventricular hypertrophy in type 2 diabetic patients.
21527296 There was no association between eating behaviour traits, or anthropometric variables, and NMB p.P73T polymorphism.
20010906 TT genotype of the NMB rs3809508 polymorphism was associated with a higher risk of obesity and moreover, the effects of this polymorphism on anthropometric values were influenced by the maternal educational level.
