Gene RIF (113)

27004414 Single nucleotide polymorphisms in FADS gene (particularly rs174537) associate with plasma fatty acids and desaturase levels in patients with both type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease.
26633493 polymorphisms in the FADS gene cluster were nominally associated with reduced risk of developing atopic eczema
26513616 No associations were observed between any single-nucleotide polymorphisms and major depressive disorder diagnosis or attempted suicide status.
26501394 FADS1 variants modulate the relationship between marine fatty acid intake and circulating levels of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids.
26474818 genetic association study in population of pregnant women in Republic of Seychelles: SNPs in FADS1/FADS2 are associated with maternal arachidonic acid status; a subtle association exists with neurodevelopment in this high fish-eating population. [REVIEW]
26283408 genome-wide association study in population of mother/infant dyads in Denmark: Data suggest SNPs in maternal FADS1 are associated with (1) lower breast milk polyunsaturated fatty acid and (2) higher production of interleukins by infant T-lymphocytes.
26261632 Suggest that the FADS1 rs174546 SNP and the FADS2 rs174601 SNP are associated with the risk of coronary artery disease and ischemic stroke, and are likely to influence serum lipid levels.
26163647 Decreased Expression of FADS1 is associated with Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
25981324 In northern Han Chinese people, the minor allele (T) of rs174616 in the FADS1-FADS2 gene cluster is associated with a decreased conversion rate of Linoleic acid to Arachidonic acid, which may contribute to decreased reduced risk of developing T2 diabetes.
25849351 High dietary n-3 LCPUFA intakes could negate the unfavorable effect of genetic variation in FADS1 on CAD in middle-aged and elderly Chinese population.
