Elevated and Correlated Expressions of miR-24, miR-30d, miR-146a, and SFRP-4 in Human Abdominal Adipose Tissue Play a Role in Adiposity and Insulin Resistance

Figure 2

Additional measures of adiposity correlate with abdominal adipose tissue (AbdAT) miR-24 and miR-146a. Partial correlation analysis identified significant associations between specific AbdAT miRNAs and measures of adiposity (a–f). Correlation scatterplots display the −ΔCt data from differentially expressed AbdAT miRNAs and were generated with the R package ggplot2. The reported partial correlation that controlled for age, gender, and ethnicity was calculated with the ppcor package. The blue line and gray band represent the linear fit of the plotted values and the 95% confidence interval of the fit, respectively.
