Impact of the Polymorphism Near MC4R (rs17782313) on Obesity- and Metabolic-Related Traits in Women Participating in an Aerobic Training Program

variant in a regulatory region of the MC4R . This is consistent with observations that regulatory regions can be several hundred kilobases away from the affected gene ( Chambers et al., 2008 ). Discussion Previous studies confirm a strong association between the polymorphism near MC4R gene and body weight ( Haupt et al., 2009 ; Loos et al., 2008 ). However, results of the present study did not confirm this relationship of the C allele with increased body weight, BMI or other obesity-related traits. Connection between increased height and the polymorphism was
