  3. Positional cloning of an obesity/diabetes susceptibility gene(s) on chromosome 11 in Pima Indians. Baier, L., Kovacs, P., Wiedrich, C., Cray, K., Schemidt, A., Shen, G.Q., Sutherland, J., Thuillez, P., Muller, Y.L., Traurig, M., Bogardus, C. Ann. N. Y. Acad. Sci. (2002) [Pubmed]
  4. Mutations in the genes for hepatocyte nuclear factor (HNF)-1alpha, -4alpha, -1beta, and -3beta; the dimerization cofactor of HNF-1; and insulin promoter factor 1 are not common causes of early-onset type 2 diabetes in Pima Indians. Baier, L.J., Permana, P.A., Traurig, M., Dobberfuhl, A., Wiedrich, C., Sutherland, J., Thuillez, P., Luczy-Bachman, G., Hara, M., Horikawa, Y., Hinokio, Y., Hanson, R.L., Bogardus, C. Diabetes. Care (2000) [Pubmed]
  5.

Clin. Invest. (2000) [Pubmed]
