BACKGROUND Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a clinically heterogeneous disease in which the risk of disease is influenced by complex genetic and environmental contributions. Alleles of HLA-DRB1, IRF5, and STAT4 are established susceptibility genes; there is strong evidence for the existence of additional risk loci. METHODS We genotyped more than 500,000 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in DNA samples from 1311 case subjects with SLE and 1783 control subjects; all subjects were… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Role of IRF5, STAT4 and BLK polymorphisms for the genetic predisposition to systemic lupus erythematosus in Japanese
TLDR
Although association of these genes with SLE is established, the molecular mechanisms of the association remain largely unknown and further studies are required to develop applications of the genetics information for clinical use.
A functional haplotype of UBE2L3 confers risk for systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
The results suggest that variants carried on the SLE-associated UBE2L3 risk haplotype influence autoimmunity by modulating UBCH7 expression, which encodes an ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme involved in cell proliferation and immune function.
Genetic Interactions Between BANK1 and BLK in Chinese Patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
TLDR
A large-scale association study confirmed the genetic interactions between BANK1 and BLK in Europeans, indicating B cell activity and a B cell-specific pathway were crucial in lupus pathogenesis and may explain some of the genetic heterogeneity and missing heritability in SLE.
Evaluation of TRAF6 in a large multiancestral lupus cohort.
TLDR
The data indicate the presence of association of TRAF6 with SLE, consistent with the previous report of association with RA, and provide further support for the involvement of TRAf6 in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity.
Replicated associations of TNFAIP3, TNIP1 and ETS1 with systemic lupus erythematosus in a southwestern Chinese population
TLDR
The replication analysis indicates that TNFAIP3, ETS1 and TNIP1 are probably common susceptibility genes for SLE in Chinese populations, and they may contribute to the pathogenesis of multiple SLE subphenotypes.
The association of the BLK gene with SLE was replicated in Chinese Han
TLDR
The association of the BLK region with SLE was replicated in Chinese Han population living in mainland and was correlated to the expression of BLK mRNA.
Association of CD247 with systemic lupus erythematosus in Asian populations
TLDR
A significant association between variants in CD247 and SLE was demonstrated in Asian populations, and understanding the involvement of CD247 in SLE may shed new light on disease mechanisms and development of new treatment paradigms.
The TRAF1-C5 region on chromosome 9q33 is associated with multiple autoimmune diseases
TLDR
A significant association was found for the TRAF1-C5 locus in SLE, implying that this region lies in a pathway relevant to multiple autoimmune diseases.
Replication of the BANK1 genetic association with systemic lupus erythematosus in a European-derived population
TLDR
The results suggest that BANK1 polymorphisms alter immune system development and function to increase the risk for developing lupus.
Further Evidence of Subphenotype Association with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Susceptibility Loci: A European Cases Only Study
TLDR
Together, the association signals provided support to some previous findings and to the characterization of lupus nephritis, autoantibodies and age of disease onset as the clinical features more associated with SLE loci.

Polymorphisms in the tyrosine kinase 2 and interferon regulatory factor 5 genes are associated with systemic lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
The results support a disease mechanism in SLE that involves key components of the type I IFN system, and identify SNPs that displayed strong signals in joint analysis of linkage and association with SLE.
STAT4 and the risk of rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
A haplotype of STAT4 is associated with increased risk for both rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus, suggesting a shared pathway for these illnesses.
Three functional variants of IFN regulatory factor 5 (IRF5) define risk and protective haplotypes for human lupus
TLDR
Evidence is found for three functional alleles of IRF5: the previously described exon 1B splice site variant, a 30-bp in-frame insertion/deletion variant of exon 6 that alters a proline-, glutamic acid-, serine- and threonine-rich domain region, and a variant in a conserved polyA+ signal sequence that alters the length of the 3′ UTR and stability of IRf5 mRNAs.
Association of a Common Interferon Regulatory Factor 5 (IRF5) Variant with Increased Risk of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
TLDR
The results in an independent case‐control sample confirm the robust association of the IRF5/rs2004640 T allele with SLE risk, and further support the relevance of the type I interferon system in the pathogenesis of SLE and autoimmunity.
The Fcgamma receptor IIIA-158F allele is a major risk factor for the development of lupus nephritis among Caucasians but not non-Caucasians.
TLDR
The results suggest that ethnic variation is critical in defining the specific genetic factors underlying the pathogenesis of SLE, and they have important prognostic and therapeutic implications as well.
A common haplotype of interferon regulatory factor 5 (IRF5) regulates splicing and expression and is associated with increased risk of systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
A commonIRF5 haplotype driving elevated expression of multiple unique isoforms of IRF5 is an important genetic risk factor for SLE, establishing a causal role for type I IFN pathway genes in human autoimmunity.
Analysis of families in the multiple autoimmune disease genetics consortium (MADGC) collection: the PTPN22 620W allele associates with multiple autoimmune phenotypes.
TLDR
A recently described functional single-nucleotide polymorphism in the intracellular tyrosine phosphatase (PTPN22) confers risk of four separate autoimmune phenotypes in these families: T1D, RA, SLE, and Hashimoto thyroiditis; these findings suggest a common underlying etiologic pathway for some, but not all, autoimmune disorders.
Specific combinations of HLA-DR2 and DR3 class II haplotypes contribute graded risk for disease susceptibility and autoantibodies in human SLE
TLDR
Significant evidence is provided that particular combinations of HLA Class II DR2 and DR3 haplotypes are key determinants of autoantibody production and disease susceptibility in human SLE.
Elevated Serum Levels of Interferon-Regulated Chemokines Are Biomarkers for Active Human Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
TLDR
Testing the hypothesis that type I IFN-regulated proteins are present in the serum of SLE patients and correlate with disease activity suggests that severely disrupted chemokine gradients may contribute to the systemic autoimmunity observed in human SLE.
