Table S9A and S9B. Correlations between modules in (A) subcutaneous adipose tissue and (B) visceral adipose tissue, and traits after correction for possible confounding factors. Overview of correlations between modules and traits after correction for confounding factors - menopausal status, hormone treatment and treatment for diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, along with all the other traits we measured: gender, age, BMI, plasma levels of glucose, insulin, HbA1c, triglycerides, non-esterified fatty acids, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, CRP, ALAT, and ASAT - in (A) subcutaneous and (B) visceral adipose tissue. The last two columns in the table show Spearman rank correlation coefficients and p-values for the correlation between the module and the associated trait - as shown in columns 2 and 3 - corrected for potential confounders, which are listed in the first column. TG, triglycerides; NEFA, non-esterified fatty acid; ALAT, alanine aminotransaminase; ASAT, aspartate aminotransaminase; CRP, C-reactive protein.
