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

  • Ankylosing spondylitis: Interaction between ERAP1 and HLA-B27 in ankylosing spondylitis implicates peptide handling in the mechanism for HLA-B27 in disease susceptibility. (View Study)
  • Crohn's disease: A genome-wide association study on a southern European population identifies a new Crohn's disease susceptibility locus at RBX1-EP300. (View Study)
  • Crohn's disease: A genome-wide scan of Ashkenazi Jewish Crohn's disease suggests novel susceptibility loci. (View Study)
  • Crohn's disease: Genome-wide association defines more than 30 distinct susceptibility loci for Crohn's disease. (View Study)
  • Crohn's disease: Genome-wide meta-analysis increases to 71 the number of confirmed Crohn's disease susceptibility loci. (View Study)
  • Crohn's disease: Systematic association mapping identifies NELL1 as a novel IBD disease gene. (View Study)
  • Gastric cancer: A genome-wide association study identifies new susceptibility loci for non-cardia gastric cancer at 3q13.31 and 5p13.1. (View Study)
  • Multiple sclerosis: Genetic risk and a primary role for cell-mediated immune mechanisms in multiple sclerosis. (View Study)
  • Multiple sclerosis: Genome-wide association study of multiple sclerosis confirms a novel locus at 5p13.1. (View Study)
  • Multiple sclerosis: Meta-analysis of genome scans and replication identify CD6, IRF8 and TNFRSF1A as new multiple sclerosis susceptibility loci. (View Study)
  • Ulcerative colitis: Host-microbe interactions have shaped the genetic architecture of inflammatory bowel disease. (View Study)
  • Ulcerative colitis: Meta-analysis identifies 29 additional ulcerative colitis risk loci, increasing the number of confirmed associations to 47. (View Study)
