Physical characteristics of 89 nondiabetic Pima Indians with Ser311- or Cys311-encoding DRD2 alleles in whom we measured TEE

Ser/SerSer/CysCys/Cys
n58256
Sex (M/F)43/1515/105/1
Age (years)35 ± 1234 ± 1134 ± 10
Height (cm)167 ± 6167 ± 7173 ± 8*

  • Data are n or means ± SD. Sex distribution across genotypes (χ2 = 2.18, P = 0.33, df = 2).

  • *

    * After adjustment for age and sex, Cys311 homozygotes were taller than the two other genotypes combined (P = 0.012). Body weight and percent body fat did not differ between genotypes, after adjusting for sex and age.
