Genome-wide association studies suggest sex-specific loci associated with abdominal and visceral fat. International journal of obesity (2005). 2015 Oct 20. PMID: 26480920 [PubMed]
To identify loci associated with abdominal fat and replicate prior findings, we performed genome-wide association (GWA) studies of abdominal fat traits: subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT); visceral adipose tissue (VAT); total adipose tissue (TAT) and visceral to subcutaneous adipose tissue ratio (VSR).
