Genetic Determinants of Enterovirus Infections: Polymorphisms in Type 1 Diabetes and Innate Immune Genes in the MIDIA Study.
Oslo, Norway. In Viral Immunol, Dec 2015
The most significant association was with two T1D SNPs, rs12150079 (ZPBP2/ORMDL3/GSDMB region) (enterovirus frequency: AA 7.3%, AG 8.7%, GG 9.7%, RR = 0.86, overall p = 1.87E-02) and rs229541 (C1QTNF6/SSTR3/RAC2) (enterovirus frequency: CC 7.8%, CT 9.7%, TT 9.4%, RR = 1.13, overall p = 3.6E-02), followed by TLR8 (rs2407992) (p = 3.8E-02), TLR3 (1914926) (p = 4.9E-02), and two other T1D SNPs (IFIH1 rs3747517, p = 4.9E-02 and PTPN22, rs2476601, p = 5.3E-02).
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and their importance in asthma.
Salamanca, Spain. In Allergol Immunopathol (madr), Nov 2015
The first GWAS was published in 2007, and described a new locus associated to asthma in chromosome 17q12-q21, involving the ORMDL3, GSDMB and ZPBP2 genes (a description of the genes named in the manuscript are listed in Table 1).
Functional variants of 17q12-21 are associated with allergic asthma but not allergic rhinitis.
Singapore, Singapore. In J Allergy Clin Immunol, Nov 2015
The polymorphic effect of this locus is attributed to the linkage set tagged by rs8076131, which affects the expression of ORMDL3, protein phosphatase 1, regulatory inhibitor subunit 1B (PPP1R1B), zona pellucida binding protein 2 (ZPBP2), and gasdermin B (GSDMB) and is correlated with high IgE levels and eosinophil counts in subjects bearing the risk genotype.
Genetic variants on 17q21 are associated with ankylosing spondylitis susceptibility and severity in a Chinese Han population.
Jinan, China. In Scand J Rheumatol, 2012
Seven single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs: rs7216389, rs12603332, rs12936231, rs9303277, rs11557467, rs1007654, and rs17608925), which were selected from chromosome 17q21 containing the genes ORMDL3, GSDMB, ZPBP2, and IKZF3, were genotyped by the Taqman SNP genotyping assay.
Identification of IRF8, TMEM39A, and IKZF3-ZPBP2 as susceptibility loci for systemic lupus erythematosus in a large-scale multiracial replication study.
Oklahoma City, United States. In Am J Hum Genet, 2012
Four additional susceptibility loci (IRF8, TMEM39A, IKZF3, and ZPBP2) for systemic lupus erythematosus were robustly established a multiethnic population (European, African American, Asian, Hispanic, Gullah, and Amerindian).
