  1. Results of analysis of 16 SNP from the FADS2 for associations with D6D activity index [DHA/EPA]. Different letters (a or b) denote values that are significantly different between groups. The * denotes p-values which are significant and withstood multiple testing. P-values were determined using multiple linear regression models which were adjusted for BMI, age, dietary LA, ALA, EPA and DHA, % total energy from dietary fat and physical activity. Abbreviations: D6D delat-6-desaturase, M major, m minor, SEM standard error of the mean, NA not applicable.
