    ..As such, variants 3' to the MC4R locus present on the genotyping platform utilized confer a similar magnitude of risk of obesity in white children as to their adult white counterparts but this observation did not extend to AAs. ..

    ..ACSL5 encodes ACSL5, an enzyme with known roles in fatty acid metabolism. This 'variant to gene mapping' effort implicates the genomic location harbouring rs7903146 as a regulatory region for ACSL5. ..

    ..These results strongly suggest that a locus on 8q24 is involved in the pathogenesis of NSCL/P. ..

    ..Given this observation, we suggest that these loci could possibly modulate shared pathways, in particular with respect to β-catenin, and their respective variants interplay to influence HME pathogenesis as well as T2D. ..

    ..Furthermore, T2D genetic risk plays a small role in LADA, with a degree of evidence for the HNF1A locus, highlighting the potential for genetic risk scores to contribute towards defining diabetes subtypes. ..
