Fat-mass and obesity associated variants in obesity and bipolar disorder in a Mexican population

Takeaway

  • There is a possible effect of fat‐mass and obesity‐associated (FTO) genetic variants on neurodevelopment in obesity and bipolar disorder (BD) in a Mexican population.

Why this matters

  • FTO polymorphisms associated with BD and obesity give new insights into the molecular mechanism underlying this association and may confirm impact on body-mass index (BMI) modulation by mood‐state regulation.
