GWAS

This gene's human homologue has been identified in the following GWAS studies:

  • Height: Genetic variants that affect length/height in infancy/early childhood in Vietnamese-Korean families. (View Study)
  • Multiple sclerosis: Genetic risk and a primary role for cell-mediated immune mechanisms in multiple sclerosis. (View Study)
  • Obesity: Genome-wide association study for early-onset and morbid adult obesity identifies three new risk loci in European populations. (View Study)
  • Renal function-related traits (urea): Meta-analysis identifies multiple loci associated with kidney function-related traits in east Asian populations. (View Study)
  • Thyroid function: Meta-analysis of two genome-wide association studies identifies four genetic loci associated with thyroid function. (View Study)
  • Thyroid hormone levels: A meta-analysis of thyroid-related traits reveals novel loci and gender-specific differences in the regulation of thyroid function. (View Study)
  • Thyroid volume: Genome-wide association study identifies four genetic loci associated with thyroid volume and goiter risk. (View Study)
  • Urate levels: Genome-wide association analyses identify 18 new loci associated with serum urate concentrations. (View Study)
