Dietary factors impact on the association between CTSS variants and obesity related traits
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Cathepsin S, a protein coded by the CTSS gene, is implicated in adipose tissue biology--this protein enhances adipose tissue development. Our hypothesis is that common variants in CTSS play a role in body weight regulation and in the development of obesity and that these effects are influenced by dietary factors--increased by high protein, glycemic index and energy diets.
