Mutations in the DJ-1 Gene Associated with Autosomal Recessive Early-Onset Parkinsonism
TLDR
It is shown that DJ-1 mutations are associated with PARK7, a monogenic form of human parkinsonism, and these findings indicate that loss ofDJ-1 function leads to neurodegeneration. Expand
Biological, Clinical, and Population Relevance of 95 Loci for Blood Lipids
TLDR
The results identify several novel loci associated with plasma lipids that are also associated with CAD and provide the foundation to develop a broader biological understanding of lipoprotein metabolism and to identify new therapeutic opportunities for the prevention of CAD. Expand
Six new loci associated with body mass index highlight a neuronal influence on body weight regulation
TLDR
Several of the likely causal genes are highly expressed or known to act in the central nervous system (CNS), emphasizing, as in rare monogenic forms of obesity, the role of the CNS in predisposition to obesity. Expand
Common variants in ABCA7, MS4A6A/MS4A4E, EPHA1, CD33 and CD2AP are associated with Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
Meta-analyses of all data provided compelling evidence that ABCA7 and the MS4A gene cluster are new Alzheimer's disease susceptibility loci and independent evidence for association for three loci reported by the ADGC, which, when combined, showed genome-wide significance. Expand
New genetic loci implicated in fasting glucose homeostasis and their impact on type 2 diabetes risk
TLDR
It is demonstrated that genetic studies of glycemic traits can identify type 2 diabetes risk loci, as well as loci containing gene variants that are associated with a modest elevation in glucose levels but are not associated with overt diabetes. Expand
Effects of age, sex, and ethnicity on the association between apolipoprotein E genotype and Alzheimer disease. A meta-analysis. APOE and Alzheimer Disease Meta Analysis Consortium.
TLDR
It is found that the APOE epsilon4 effect is evident at all ages between 40 and 90 years but diminishes after age 70 years and that the risk of AD associated with a given genotype varies with sex. Expand
Discovery and Refinement of Loci Associated with Lipid Levels
TLDR
It is found that loci associated with blood lipid levels are often associated with cardiovascular and metabolic traits, including coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, blood pressure, waist-hip ratio and body mass index. Expand
Large-scale association analysis provides insights into the genetic architecture and pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes
TLDR
A meta-analysis of genetic variants on the Metabochip, including 34,840 cases and 114,981 controls, finds a long tail of additional common variant loci explaining much of the variation in susceptibility to type 2 diabetes. Expand
Defining the role of common variation in the genomic and biological architecture of adult human height
TLDR
The results indicate a genetic architecture for human height that is characterized by a very large but finite number of causal variants, including mTOR, osteoglycin and binding of hyaluronic acid. Expand
Variant of TREM2 associated with the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
These findings strongly implicate variant TREM2 in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease and find that carriers of rs75932628-T between the ages of 80 and 100 years without Alzheimer’s disease had poorer cognitive function than noncarriers. Expand
