This snp influences obesity however the most strongly linked neighboring snp is rs9939609. You probably want that one.
This plos genetics paper reports rs9930506 showed the strongest association with BMI (p = 8.6 *10-7), hip circumference (p = 3.4 * 10-8) and weight (p = 9.1 * 10-7). homozygotes for the rare "G" allele were were 1.3 BMI units heavier than homozygotes for the common "A" allele.
This SNP did not show any association with obesity, type-2 diabetes or any other related traits in a study of 3,210 Chinese subjects. Furthermore, the minor allele frequency was much lower in Chinese populations compared to populations of European descent.[PMID 17959933]
[PMID 19148128] rs9930506 (A;A) showed decreased levels of methylated PPARGC1A in comparison with AG + GG genotypes, suggesting a potential role of promoter PPARGC1A methylation in metabolic programming.
