Whole-genome sequencing of the world's oldest people.
Los Angeles, United States. In Plos One, 2013
We followed up on the gene most enriched for rare protein-altering variants in our cohort of supercentenarians, TSHZ3, by sequencing it in a second cohort of 99 long-lived individuals but did not find a significant enrichment.
Genetic loci for blood lipid levels identified by linkage and association analyses in Caribbean Hispanics.
Miami, United States. In J Lipid Res, 2011
In the association analysis of the linkage peaks, we found that seven SNPs near FLJ45974 were associated with LDL-C/HDL-C with a nominal P < 3.5 × 10(-5), in addition to associations (P < 0.0001) for other lipid traits with SNPs in or near CDH13, SUMF2, TLE3, FAH, ARNT2, TSHZ3, ZNF343, RPL7AL2, and TMC3.
