INTRODUCTION: In view of our previous studies showing an independent association of genetic polymorphisms in folate, xenobiotic, and toll-like receptor (TLR) pathways with the risk for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), we have developed three statistical models to delineate complex gene-gene interactions between folate, xenobiotic, TLR, and signal transducer and activator of transcription 4 (STAT4) signaling pathways in association with the molecular pathophysiology of SLE.

We replicated ten previously established SLE risk loci: STAT1-STAT4, TNFSF4, TNFAIP3, IKZF1, HIP1, IRF5, BLK, WDFY4, ETS1 and IRAK1-MECP2.

Of these pSS candidates, 14 genes had been reported to be associated with any of pSS, RA, and SLE, including STAT4, GTF2I, HLA-DPB1, HLA-DRB1, PTTG1, HLA-DQB1, MBL2, TAP2, CFLAR, NFKBIE, HLA-DRA, APOM, HLA-DQA2 and NOTCH4.
