GWAS for Membranous Nephropathy
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Primary membranous nephropathy (MN) is a rare autoimmune cause of kidney failure. This dataset is from a genome-wide association study (GWAS) designed to identify novel genetic risk loci for MN. The provided cohort (named as European-1 Cohort) is composed of 611 cases of primary MN and 1,246 healthy controls of European ancestry. This cohort was used in the GWAS meta-analysis, as described in the manuscript entitled "Genetic architecture of membranous nephropathy and its potential diagnostic implications" (Nature Communications 2020, in press).
The genome-wide summary statistics, including trans-ethnic meta-analysis across 8 GWAS cohorts of European and East Asian ancestry and ethnicity specific meta-analyses, are freely available for download on the Kiryluk lab website: http://www.columbiamedicine.org/divisions/kiryluk/resources.php.
