Graves' disease is a common autoimmune disorder characterized by thyroid stimulating hormone receptor autoantibodies (TRAb) and hyperthyroidism. To investigate the genetic architecture of Graves' disease, we conducted a genome-wide association study in 1,536 individuals with Graves' disease (cases) and 1,516 controls. We further evaluated a group of(More)
OBJECTIVE Associations between IL2RA and various autoimmune diseases have been reported in Caucasians. We investigated whether genetic polymorphisms at the IL2RA locus were associated with Graves' disease (GD) in the Chinese Han population. DESIGN We performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) in 1 536 GD patients and 1 516 controls. The 1000 Genomes(More)
To pinpoint the exact location of the etiological variant/s present at 1q21.1 harboring FCRL1-5 and CD5L genes, we carried out a refined association study in the entire FCRL region in 1,536 patients with Graves' disease (GD) and 1,516 sex-matched controls by imputation analysis, logistic regression, and cis-eQTL analysis. Among 516 SNPs with P<0.05 in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the correlations of the polymorphisms of phosphodiesterase 8B (PDE8B) gene with Hyperthyroxinemia in Chinese Han population. METHODS A case-control study of genotype 657366 SNPs was performed by Illumina Human660-Quad BeadChips in 98 Hyperthyroxinemia patients and 1300 controls. And 25 SNPs within PDE8B gene intron 1 were used for(More)
