Identification of a significant association of a single nucleotide polymorphism in TNXB with systemic lupus erythematosus in a Japanese population


AbstractSystemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is one of the common autoimmune diseases, with complex genetic components. Here, we report on a case–control association study of 178 SLE patients and 899 control subjects, using genome-wide gene-based single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers. An SNP, rs3130342, in a 5′ flanking region of the TNXB gene revealed… (More)
