Genetic Analysis of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis: GWAS of Psoriatic Arthritis
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
This study is a genome-wide study of genetic associations with psoriatic arthritis (PsA), an inflammatory musculoskeletal condition that develops in up to 30% of people who have chronic psoriasis skin lesions. 1,526 cases affected with psoriatic arthritis and 1,508 unaffected controls were recruited and typed on the Illumina HumanOmni1-Quad BeadChip array. After application of quality control measures to both samples and SNPs, genotypes for 791,217 autosomal SNPs were available for 1,430 PsA cases and 1,417 controls. Imputation using phased haplotypes for the EUR subpopulation of release 3, phase 1 of the 1000 Genomes Project as a reference, resulted in genotypes for 11,532,644 SNPs and 918,976 indels passing our imputation quality threshold (Mach r2 ≥ 0.3) that were available for downstream analysis. Association at a genome-wide threshold of significance was found for five regions (near genes TNIP1, IL12B, HLA-C, TRAF3IP2, and TYK2).
