KIDNEY DISEASE GENETICS AND THE IMPORTANCE OF DIVERSITY IN PRECISION MEDICINE.
Cleveland, United States. In Pac Symp Biocomput, Dec 2015
Common genetic variants in the myosin, heavy chain 9, non-muscle (MYH9) gene were initially identified as associated with non-diabetic end-stage renal disease in African Americans, and it is now understood that these variants are in strong linkage disequilibrium with likely causal variants in neighboring APOL1.
[Which genetic testing in renal disease].
In G Ital Nefrol, Sep 2015
The applicability of clinical genetics in nephrology is due to the fact that many kidney diseases are characterized by genetic mutations (e.g., von-Hippel Lindau syndrome, MYH9 related disorders, Fabry's syndrome, Liddle's and Bartter's Syndrome, and others).
Quantitative candidate gene association studies of metabolic traits in Han Chinese type 2 diabetes patients.
Tianjin, China. In Genet Mol Res, 2014
We found that CAMTA1, ABI2, VHL, KAT2B, PKHD1, ESR1, TOX, SLC30A8, SFI1, and MYH9 polymorphisms were associated with HbA1c, FPG, and/or P2PG; GCK, HHEX, TCF7L2, KCNQ1, and TBX5 polymorphisms were associated with insulin resistance-related traits; ABCG2, SLC2A9, and PKHD1 polymorphisms were associated with SUA; CAMTA1, VHL, KAT2B, PON1, NUB1, SLITRK5, SMAD3, FTO, FANCA, and PCSK2 polymorphisms were associated with blood lipid traits; CAMTA1, SPAG16, TOX, KCNQ1, ACACB, and MYH9 polymorphisms were associated with blood pressure; and UBE2E3, SPAG16, SLC2A9, CDKAL1, CDKN2A/B, TCF7L2, SMAD3, and PNPLA3 polymorphisms were associated with BMI (all P values <0.05).
