GWAS

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

  • Glaucoma (primary open-angle): A genome-wide association study in the Japanese population confirms 9p21 and 14q23 as susceptibility loci for primary open angle glaucoma. (View Study)
  • Glaucoma (primary open-angle): Common variants at 9p21 and 8q22 are associated with increased susceptibility to optic nerve degeneration in glaucoma. (View Study)
  • Height: Hundreds of variants clustered in genomic loci and biological pathways affect human height. (View Study)
  • Refractive error: Genome-wide meta-analyses of multiancestry cohorts identify multiple new susceptibility loci for refractive error and myopia. (View Study)
