Figure 1.

BMI throughout childhood and adulthood in individuals of different FTO genotypes. The A allele genotype is the minor 'fat' allele AT rs9939609. The figure was adapted from Sovio et al. [4] and is based on real association data in childhood and a schematic of the association in adulthood (BP, blood pressure). Boxes describe associations with the minor 'fat' allele and stars are indicative of the statistical confidence of the association.
