From: Assessment of the FTO gene polymorphisms (rs1421085, rs17817449 and rs9939609) in exercise-trained men and women: the effects of a 4-week hypocaloric diet

  Risk Allele
(n = 32), 7 males
Non-Risk Allele

Age (years) 34 ± 9 28 ± 9
Height (centimeters) 167 ± 7 173 ± 9
Body Weight (kilograms) 68.5 ± 12.5 73.9 ± 12.8
Body Mass Index (kilograms/meter2) 24 ± 3 24 ± 3
Hours of Aerobic Training Per Week 5.2 ± 4.5 4.8 ± 3.0
Hours of Resistance Training Per Week 4.2 ± 2.8 3.9 ± 1.0
Total Number of Years Training 14.7 ± 8.1 11.8 ± 4.5
  1. Data are expressed as the mean ± SD. There were no differences between groups. If an individual carried the risk alleles for at least two of the three SNPs (i.e., rs1421085, rs17817449, rs9939609) they were classified as part of the Risk Allele group
