Table 3 Associations between MetS traits and methylation status of FABP3

From: Fatty acid binding protein 3 (fabp3) is associated with insulin, lipids and cardiovascular phenotypes of the metabolic syndrome through epigenetic modifications in a northern european family population

  1. The traits or CpG units that showed any significant associations are presented. For each trait/CpG pair, β (±SE), total trait variance explained by the association (varexp), and the absolute change in that trait attributable to methylation of the specific CpG site are shown. *associations with confidence interval of 95%.
