|(A;G)||A single copy of the Thr allele associated with a moderately increased sensitivity to saturated fats. Also contributes to increased refined carb sensitivity.|
|(G;G)||This genotype is not associated with increased sensitivity to saturated fats or refined carbohydrates.|
|(A;A)||0||Two copies of the Thr allele in the FABP2 is associated with significantly increased sensitivity to saturated fats. Also contributes to increased refined carb sensitivity.|
The derived allele at SNP (A54T), rs1799883, in FABP2 increases strongly with latitude (p < 0.01) [PMID 18282109]
