Figure 1

Differences in protective (upper panel) or risk (lower panel) minor allele frequency in Puerto Rican versus non-Hispanic whites, by SNP. Tables describe the associated phenotypes for those SNPs with significantly different MAF between populations. *Significantly different MAF between populations, p < 0.0005 Abbreviations: MAF: minor allele frequency; HDL-C: high density lipoprotein; T2DM: type 2 diabetes mellitus; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance; CAD: coronary artery disease; BMI: body mass index; TG: triglycerides; LDL-C: low density lipoprotein; VLDL-C: very low density lipoprotein; TC: total cholesterol; IHD: ischemic heart disease; CHD: coronary heart disease; HbA1c: glycosylated hemoglobin.
