A pro-diabetogenic mtDNA polymorphism in the mitochondrial-derived peptide, MOTS-c

Increased visceral fat mass and MOTS-c levels in m.1382A>C polymorphism carriers. (A) Visceral fat and (B) Plasma MOTS-c levels were measured in individuals carrying either reference (m.1382 A) or alternative (m.1382 C) alleles. n=75, *** p p
