Association of height and pubertal timing with lipoprotein subclass profile: exploring the role of genetic and environmental effects

Jelenkovic et al. American Journal of Human Biology 2013;25(4):465-72

Early puberty and shorter adult height relate to higher concentrations of atherogenic lipids and lipoprotein particles in early adulthood.

Common genetic effects behind these phenotypes substantially contribute to the observed associations.
