The ob gene mutation causing an absence of leptin is represented by (a) and leptin receptor mutations by (b). POMC mutations (c) disrupt cortisol biosynthesis and a-MSH-induced pigmentation as well as appetite regulation whereas PC-1 mutations (d) do not appear to have a major effect on pigmentation but instead lead to hypogonadism and glucoregulatory abnormalities.

09 and thus fails to reach classically defined statistical significance. 3 are best considered ‘suggestive’ and worthy of further investigation [30]. Limitations of traditional linkage analysis include its reliance on assumptions about disease transmission (genetic architecture) and the fact that linkage signals may be hard to detect when the gene in question contributes only marginally to the phenotype. The use of special relationships such as discordant sibling pairs has been used to circumvent these problems to some extent but, even with the advent of more complex study designs and elaborate computational methods (including models robust to assumptions about mode of inheritance such as non-parametric linkage analysis) it is still not possible to model the involvement of more than two disease loci and this is especially problematic in human obesity where disease susceptibility may depend more on particular configurations of more than one variant (as with calpain 10 in type 2 diabetes [31]) than on the presence or absence of a single variant.
