Furthermore, to our knowledge, it is not established from any genome-wide association studies in literature whether some genes such as FTO, LEP, LEPR, MC4R, NPY2R, and POMC that have been implicated in higher BMI are located on the same chromosomal region as that of ABO or that ABO gene exerts regulatory control over them.
