Association of a common complement receptor 2 haplotype with increased risk of systemic lupus erythematosus.


A genomic region on distal mouse chromosome 1 and its syntenic human counterpart 1q23-42 show strong evidence of harboring lupus susceptibility genes. We found evidence of linkage at 1q32.2 in a targeted genome scan of 1q21-43 in 126 lupus multiplex families containing 151 affected sibpairs (nonparametric linkage score 2.52, P = 0.006). A positional… (More)
