A pruned visualization of the correlation network from un-adjusted Spearman correlation analysis. Each variable was converted to a surrogate linear predictor before computations. The color of the edges indicate the association magnitude as shown in the legend. The vertices are colored as red and blue if all edges of the vertex are positive or negative correlations, respectively. In the cases where the vertex has both negative and positive correlations with its neighbor, the vertex is colored orange. Abbreviations: SBP = systolic blood pressure; DBP = diastolic blood pressure; VLDL = triacylglycerol and cholesterol in very-low density lipoprotein particles; LDL = triacylglycerol and cholesterol in low density lipoprotein particles; IDL = triacylglycerol and cholesterol in intermediate-density lipoprotein particles; Factor 1 (leucine, isoleucine, valine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, orosomucoid); Factor 2 (total fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids, omega7 and 9 fatty acids, linoleic acid, mono-unsaturated fatty acids, total phosphoglycerides, total phosphocholines); Factor 3 (docosahexaenoic acid, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega-3 fatty acids); Factor 5 (glutamine, glycine, pyruvate); Factor 6 (acetate, histidine); Factor 7 (creatinine, citrate); Factor 8 (urea).
