From: Placental 13C-DHA metabolism and relationship with maternal BMI, glycemia and birthweight

Fig. 2

Positive associations of BMI with the enrichment of placental 13C-DHA lipids (Z-scored, log2 transformed; n = 17 placenta) in culture at a physiological glucose condition (5 mmol/L). Linear regression was run with lipid as the outcome and BMI as the predictor. The Benjamini–Hochberg (BH) method was used to correct for multiple testing. Solid lines show significant associations while dashed lines show non-significant associations. Shaded areas show 95% confidence intervals. Key for dots—Purple: non-GDM, Black: GDM. Significant after adjusting for fasting glycemia, Significant after adjusting for 2 h glycemia. CI confidence interval, DG diacylglycerol, DHA docosahexaenoic acid, GDM gestational diabetes, LPC lyso-phosphatidylcholine, LPE lyso-phosphatidylethanolamine, PC phosphatidylcholine, PE-P phosphatidylethanolamine-plasmalogen, TG triacylglycerol
