Ever since the discovery of the major histocompatibility complex, scientific and clinical understanding in the field of transplantation has been advanced through genetic and genomic studies. Candidate-gene approaches and recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have enabled a deeper understanding of the complex interplay of the donor–recipient interactions that lead to transplant tolerance or rejection. Genetic analysis in transplantation, when linked to demographic and clinical outcomes… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Genetic background and transplantation outcomes: insights from genome-wide association studies.
TLDR
Recent advances in the genetic studies of transplantation outcomes are summarized, including new genome-wide association studies for acute rejection, allograft survival, pharmacogenomics, and common transplant comorbidities.
Clinical Applications of Genetic Discoveries in Kidney Transplantation: a Review.
TLDR
The ways in which genetic testing may be applied to improve the care of kidney transplant recipients and donors are explored.
Germline genetic contribution to the immune landscape of cancer
TLDR
It is concluded that germline genetic variants significantly impact the composition and functional orientation of the tumor immune microenvironment.
Applying genomics in heart transplantation
TLDR
A number of the key advances in genomics which are relevant for heart transplant outcomes are summarized, and the translational potential that such knowledge may bring to patient care within the next decade is highlighted.
HLA and kidney disease: from associations to mechanisms
TLDR
This Review explores the mechanistic links underlying the associations between HLA and kidney diseases and discusses how these links might provide insights into disease pathogenesis and describe the clinical implications of these insights.
A practical approach to the genomics of kidney disorders
TLDR
The spectrum of nephrogenetic disorders is reviewed, the optimal approach to genetic testing is considered, the clinical utility of obtaining a molecular diagnosis is explored, the challenges of variant interpretation are reflected, and the future of this dynamic field is looked to.
Development and evaluation of a transfusion medicine genome wide genotyping array
TLDR
A transfusion medicine array (TM‐Array) is designed for study of both common and rare transfusion‐relevant variations in genetically diverse donor and recipient populations.
An accessible insight into genetic findings for transplantation recipients with suspected genetic kidney disease
TLDR
Trio-ES was conducted for the families who had multiple affected individuals with nephropathy or clinical suspicion of a genetic kidney disease owing to early onset or extrarenal features, and detected promising variants of uncertain significance in candidate genes associated with renal development or renal disease.
A Multi-Marker Test for Analyzing Paired Genetic Data in Transplantation
TLDR
A multi-marker Joint Score Test (JST) to jointly test for association between recipient genotype SNP effects and a gene-based matching score with transplant outcomes and is competitive when compared with existing methods, such as the sequence kernel association test (SKAT).

Background Genetic association studies of transplantation outcomes have been hampered by small samples and highly complex multifactorial phenotypes, hindering investigations of the genetic
Concept and design of a genome-wide association genotyping array tailored for transplantation-specific studies
TLDR
A comprehensive genome-wide genotyping tool which enables accurate association testing and imputation of ungenotyped SNPs, facilitating powerful and cost-effective large-scale genotypesing of transplant-related studies.
Genetic variants in major histocompatibility complex-linked genes associate with pediatric liver transplant rejection.
TLDR
The minor allele of the SNP rs9296068 is significantly associated with liver transplantation rejection and with enhanced B-lymphocyte participation in rejection, likely because of a dysfunctional HLA-DOA gene product.
Defining genetic risk for graft-versus-host disease and mortality following allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
TLDR
Available data offers strong preliminary support for the impact that genetic variation has on risk of GVHD and mortality following HCT, however definitive results await future genome-wide studies of large multicenter HCT cohorts.
Genetic determinants of renal transplant outcome: where do we stand?
TLDR
The current and emerging literature in the field is examined and the limitations of current studies and technologies are discussed to lead to a more accurate assessment of post-transplant risk.

TLDR
Better understanding of molecular processes associated with allograft rejection or alloantigen hyporesponsiveness/tolerance may help to improve knowledge about graft pathology and identify novel markers suitable for future monitoring and guided therapy and finally improve the outcome of kidney transplantation.
Epigenetics: Time to Translate Into Transplantation
TLDR
The nature of epigenetic modification in disease and the emerging evidence for epigenetic influences on allograft survival are explored.
Genome-wide surveillance of mismatched alleles for graft-versus-host disease in stem cell transplantation.
TLDR
The result suggested that a genome-wide association study can be successfully applied to identify allele mismatch associated with aGVHD development, contributing to the understanding of the genetic basis of aGV HD.
