Table 3 Correlations between ZIP14 gene expression, PPARγ gene expression, and metabolic markers

From: Gene expression of the zinc transporter ZIP14 (SLC39a14) is affected by weight loss and metabolic status and associates with PPARγ in human adipose tissue and 3T3-L1 pre-adipocytes

  ZIP14 gene expression
PPARγ1 gene expression r = 0.68, p < 0.0001
PPARγ2 gene expression r = 0.38, p = 0.0487
BMI r = −0.59, p = 0.0012
Waist/hip ratio r = −0.45, p = 0.0181
Body fat percentage r = −0.60, p = 0.0009
Cholesterol r = −0.25, p = 0.2112
HDL r = 0.58, p = 0.0015
LDL r = −0.26, p = 0.1925
Triglyceride r = −0.53, p = 0.0041
Insulin r = −0.61, p = 0.0007
Glucose r = −0.41, p = 0.0324
HOMA index r = −0.60, p = 0.0009
  1. Correlations between ZIP14 and PPARγ gene expression levels, anthropometric data, lipid profiles, and glucose homeostasis from obese individuals before weight loss and from non-obese controls (n = 27). Pearson’s r-values and p-values are shown. BMI, body mass index; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; HOMA, homeostasis model assessment; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; PPAR, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor
