Table 1 Model fit and proportion of variance for the FPG level accounted by genetic and environmental parameters

From: Heritability and genome-wide association analyses of fasting plasma glucose in Chinese adult twins

Model Parameters estimates Goodness of fit index

  1. Note: * the best fitted model, which was chosen on the basis of a change in χ2 not representing a significant worsening of fit
  2. FPG fasting plasma glucose; A additive genetic effect; D common or shared environmental effect; E unique environmental or residual effect; −2LL −2 log likelihood; df degree of freedom; AIC Akaike’s information criterion; χ2, difference of χ2 value; P, χ2 test in model fitting
