  • Data are untransformed means (95% CI). Haplotype alleles 1 and 2 are assigned numbers in the order of polymorphisms along the PPARGC1 gene locus. 0, more-common polymorphism (482glycine, +2962A); 1, less-common polymorphism (482serine, +2962G).

    * P < 0.05,

  • P < 0.10,

  • not significant; n, number of observations.
