From: Interaction of HSD11B1 and H6PD polymorphisms in subjects with type 2 diabetes are protective factors against obesity: a cross-sectional study

  SAT
(n = 18)
VAT
(n = 24)
Non obese 1.04 (0.39–6.05) 3.01 (0.39–3.74)
Obese 0.85 (0.37–9.54) 1.32 (0.63–3.47)
MetS (−) 0.9 (0.6–10.36) 2.39 (0.69–24.73)
MetS (+) 0.97 (0.3–5.65) 1.30 (0.39–3.25)
  1. Data expressed as median (P25–P75)
  2. SAT subcutaneous adipose tissue, VAT visceral adipose tissue, MetS (−) subjects without metabolic syndrome, MetS (+) subjects with metabolic syndrome
  3. Gene expression did not differ among the groups (P > 0.05). P values were computed by Student’s t-test
