Figure 2

Pattern of linkage disequilibrium (LD) between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at risk for uterine fibroids and/or obesity in a case (panel a) and control (panel b) study of uterine fibroids in the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Uterine Fibroid Study. Note that in contrast to the ‘uterine leiomyoma (UL)’ SNPs in the region downstream FH (SNP 656–673), which show low levels of or no LD with the two ‘obesity’ SNPs, the association with SNP 1037, 1292 and 1335 is lost after controlling for body mass index (BMI). A full color version of this figure is available at the Journal of Human Genetics journal online.
