    Qual Life Res 8:275-7. 1999
    ..There were no significant differences between the lifestyle and aerobic activity groups on any of the study measures. These data indicate that, at least in the short-term, weight loss appears to profoundly enhance HRQL...

    ..Instead, homozygotes for this allele had a significantly lower BMI than their counterparts without the polymorphism. In addition, we found no relationship between the 238 polymorphism and BMI, fasting glucose, or log of fasting insulin...

    Clin Genet 62:196-202. 2002
    ..Given the stimulatory effect of NPY on adipocyte lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity, and the lack of association of other polymorphisms with serum lipid levels, we hypothesize that this is a gain-in-function polymorphism...
