FTO is a novel protein and a member of the non-heme dioxygenase (Fe(II)-and 2-oxoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases) superfamily. Amino acid conservation patterns support this hypothesis and indicates that both 2-oxoglutarate and iron should be important for FTO function. Though not much is yet known about FTO, it is thought that the protein may somehow modify the activity of genes involved in metabolism and fat storage, which in turn may influence a person's risk of obesity.
