Levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, triglycerides and total cholesterol are heritable, modifiable risk factors for coronary artery disease. To identify new loci and refine known loci influencing these lipids, we examined 188,577 individuals using genome-wide and custom genotyping arrays. We identify and annotate 157 loci associated with lipid levels at P < 5 × 10−8, including 62 loci not previously associated with lipid levels in… Expand
Genetics of Circulating Blood Lipids
TLDR
New biology behind lipid levels is demonstrated, in addition to how large scale studies with dense SNP panels enabled by genotype imputation, can be a key in revealing biological determinants behind complex diseases and traits. Expand
Bivariate GWAS scan identifies six novel loci associated with lipid levels and coronary artery disease
TLDR
Six novel variants individually associated with both lipids and coronary artery disease are discovered, indicating that these loci may be affecting disease risk through regulatory activity. Expand
Bivariate Genome-Wide Association Scan Identifies 6 Novel Loci Associated With Lipid Levels and Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
At several of the loci, the GWAS signals jointly localize with genetic variants associated with expression level changes for more than one neighboring genes, indicating that these loci may be affecting disease risk through regulatory activity. Expand
Apolipoprotein B underlies the causal relationship of circulating blood lipids with coronary heart disease
TLDR
Apolipoprotein B is of fundamental causal relevance in the aetiology of CHD, and underlies the relationship of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides with CHD. Expand
Common and rare genetic markers of lipid variation in subjects with type 2 diabetes from the ACCORD clinical trial
TLDR
A genome-wide association study of common and rare variants to investigate associations with baseline lipid levels in 7,844 individuals with type 2 diabetes from the ACCORD clinical trial finds many statistically significant CV findings replicate findings in large meta-analyses in non-diabetic subjects. Expand
Common variants associated with blood lipid levels do not affect carotid plaque composition.
TLDR
This study found no evidence that plasma lipid levels or their genetic determinants influence carotid plaque composition. Expand
Replication and fine-mapping of genetic predictors of lipid traits in African-Americans
TLDR
The genetic architecture of lipid traits in AAs differs substantially from that in Caucasians and it remains poorly characterized. Expand
Mining genomic variants and causal pathways linking HDL and triglycerides to coronary disease
TLDR
The findings suggest that HDL functionality in driving cholesterol removal through SR-BI (the reverse cholesterol transport hypothesis) is protective from CHD in humans, and provides a sampling of approaches for leveraging the spectrum of genomic methods to identify clinically relevant variants impacting HDL, TG and CHD risk. Expand
Evaluating the relationship between circulating lipoprotein lipids and apolipoproteins with risk of coronary heart disease: A multivariable Mendelian randomisation analysis
TLDR
Genetic instruments for lipoprotein lipid traits implemented through multivariable Mendelian randomisation suggest that apolipoprotein B is a leading candidate for a causal role in the aetiology of CHD, but these effect estimates attenuated substantially to the null on accounting for apoliprotein B. Expand
Discovery of High-Density Lipoprotein Gene Targets from Classical Genetics to Genome-Wide Association Studies
TLDR
Prior knowledge of HDL is reviewed, focusing on HDL-modifying genes identified from classic genetic disorders, and drug discovery efforts related to known genes are discussed, and large genome-wide association studies that identified additional novel HDL-associated genes that function in lipid metabolism, diabetes, obesity, lipid trafficking, transcription, chromatin remodeling, RNA processing, and signal transduction are reviewed.

Large-scale gene-centric meta-analysis across 32 studies identifies multiple lipid loci.
TLDR
This large meta-analysis of lipid phenotypes with the use of a dense gene-centric approach identified multiple SNPs not previously described in established lipid genes and several previously unknown loci, suggesting that a focused genotyping approach can further increase the understanding of heritability of plasma lipids.

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
Common variants associated with plasma triglycerides and risk for coronary artery disease
TLDR
It is suggested that triglyceride-rich lipoproteins causally influence risk for CAD, and the strength of a polymorphism's effect on triglyceride levels is correlated with the magnitude of its effect on CAD risk. Expand
Newly identified loci that influence lipid concentrations and risk of coronary artery disease
To identify genetic variants influencing plasma lipid concentrations, we first used genotype imputation and meta-analysis to combine three genome-wide scans totaling 8,816 individuals and comprisingExpand
The Metabochip, a Custom Genotyping Array for Genetic Studies of Metabolic, Cardiovascular, and Anthropometric Traits
TLDR
The Metabochip and its component SNP sets are described and evaluated, its performance in capturing variation across the allele-frequency spectrum is evaluated, solutions to methodological challenges commonly encountered in its analysis are described, and its performance as a platform for genotype imputation is evaluated.

Genome-Wide Association Study of Coronary Heart Disease and Its Risk Factors in 8,090 African Americans: The NHLBI CARe Project
TLDR
It is suggested that no major loci uniquely explain the high prevalence of CHD in African Americans, and resources and methods that address both admixture- and SNP-association to maximize power for genetic discovery in even larger African-American consortia are developed. Expand
Effects of polymorphisms in apolipoproteins E, A-IV, and H on quantitative traits related to risk for cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
It is indicated that variation in many genes may influence variation in a particular trait and that a particular gene may have pleiotropic effects on several traits. Expand
Forty-Three Loci Associated with Plasma Lipoprotein Size, Concentration, and Cholesterol Content in Genome-Wide Analysis
While conventional LDL-C, HDL-C, and triglyceride measurements reflect aggregate properties of plasma lipoprotein fractions, NMR-based measurements more accurately reflect lipoprotein particleExpand
Fine Mapping of Five Loci Associated with Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol Detects Variants That Double the Explained Heritability
TLDR
The results suggest that targeted re-sequencing efforts paired with large-scale genotyping will increase estimates of complex trait heritability explained by known loci, and that focusing on variants accessible via GWAS can lead to clear underestimates of the trait heritable explained by a set of loci.

Plasma HDL cholesterol and risk of myocardial infarction: a mendelian randomisation study
TLDR
Mendelian randomisation analyses challenge the concept that raising of plasma HDL cholesterol will uniformly translate into reductions in risk of myocardial infarction. Expand
