Table 2 Variance and heritability estimates for individual traits and principal components.

From: Exploring pleiotropy using principal components

  Trait Mean (SD) H2rA (SE)
1 Log Chol 5.32 (0.17) 0.63 (0.04)
2 HDL 50.22 (11.64) 0.71 (0.03)
3 LDL 128.89 (37.90) 0.60 (0.04)
4 Log TG 4.83 (0.48) 0.62 (0.04)
5 BMI 26.74 (4.79) 0.79 (0.03)
6 Log SBP 4.88 (0.12) 0.75 (0.03)
PC 1 1/2 (Log Chol + LDL)   0.62 (0.04)
PC 2 1/2 BMI + (Log TG - HDL)   0.80 (0.03)
PC 3 Log SBP + 2/3 BMI   0.74 (0.03)
  1. AH2r represents the polygenic contribution and H2q1 the contribution of major gene (H2r + H2q1 = overall heritability).
