Physical decline and survival in the elderly are affected by the genetic variability of amino acid transporter genes

Figure 1. Survival function of carriers of minor allele (black) vs non carriers (grey). (A) rs14160 (SLC36A1) in subjects aged <90 years; (B) rs10056358 (SLC38A9) in subjects aged ≥90 years; (C) rs10056358 (SLC38A9) in subjects aged > 90 years. Time is expressed in months, where 0 is considered the time of recruitment, and each individual is followed up for survival status till death. HR value, confidence interval and p-value from Cox regression analysis are reported inside the figure.
