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

  • Adiponectin levels: Novel loci for adiponectin levels and their influence on type 2 diabetes and metabolic traits: a multi-ethnic meta-analysis of 45,891 individuals. (View Study)
  • Age-related macular degeneration: Common variants near FRK/COL10A1 and VEGFA are associated with advanced age-related macular degeneration. (View Study)
  • Chronic kidney disease: New loci associated with kidney function and chronic kidney disease. (View Study)
  • Coronary heart disease: A genome-wide association study for coronary artery disease identifies a novel susceptibility locus in the major histocompatibility complex. (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)
  • Type 2 diabetes: Meta-analysis of genome-wide association data and large-scale replication identifies additional susceptibility loci for type 2 diabetes. (View Study)
  • Urate levels: Genome-wide association analyses identify 18 new loci associated with serum urate concentrations. (View Study)
  • Waist-hip ratio: Meta-analysis identifies 13 new loci associated with waist-hip ratio and reveals sexual dimorphism in the genetic basis of fat distribution. (View Study)
