Table 3 Unadjusted and adjusted correlation of MALAT1 gene expression in SAT and VAT of the whole population study with anthropometric and metabolic profiles

From: Adipose tissue gene expression of long non-coding RNAs; MALAT1, TUG1 in obesity: is it associated with metabolic profile and lipid homeostasis-related genes expression?
