26431121 This systematic review was a comprehensive analysis of the currently available evidence, and found an overall significant association of rs4753426 polymorphism with the risk of--{REVIEW}
26345809 Authors investigated the association between rs4753426 single nucleotide polymorphisms in the melatonin receptor 1B (MTNR1B) gene and the risk of developing gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).
25982863 Carriers of the G allele of MTNR1B rs10830963 are more likely to develop gestational diabetes than carriers of the C allele.
25939854 results indicate, for the first time, the presence of a functional circadian clock in the human myometrium with the hMTNR1B gene as a clock controlled target.
25922310 results obtained are suggestive of MTNR1B role in T2D etiology, they need to be confirmed with much larger sample sizes
