    • Background: Blood lipid levels including low-density lipoprotein cholesterol ( LDL-C), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ( HDL-C), and triglycerides ( TG) are highly heritable. Genome-wide association is a promising approach to map genetic loci related to these heritable phenotypes. Methods: In 1087 Framingham Heart Study Offspring cohort participants ( mean age 47 years, 52% women), we conducted genome-wide analyses ( Affymetrix 100K GeneChip) for fasting blood lipid traits. Total cholesterol, HDL-C, and TG were measured by standard enzymatic methods and LDL-C was calculated using the Friedewald formula. The long-term averages of up to seven measurements of LDL-C, HDL-C, and TG over a similar to 30 year span were the primary phenotypes. We used generalized estimating equations ( GEE), family-based association tests ( FBAT) and variance components linkage to investigate the relationships between SNPs ( on autosomes, with minor allele frequency >= 10%, genotypic call rate >= 80%, and Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium p >= 0.001) and multivariable-adjusted residuals. We pursued a three-stage replication strategy of the GEE association results with 287 SNPs ( P < 0.001 in Stage I) tested in Stage II ( n similar to 1450 individuals) and 40 SNPs ( P < 0.001 in joint analysis of Stages I and II) tested in Stage III ( n similar to 6650 individuals). Results: Long-term averages of LDL-C, HDL-C, and TG were highly heritable ( h(2) = 0.66, 0.69, 0.58, respectively; each P < 0.0001). Of 70,987 tests for each of the phenotypes, two SNPs had p < 10(-5) in GEE results for LDL-C, four for HDL-C, and one for TG. For each multivariable-adjusted phenotype, the number of SNPs with association p < 10(-4) ranged from 13 to 18 and with p < 10(-3), from 94 to 149. Some results confirmed previously reported associations with candidate genes including variation in the lipoprotein lipase gene ( LPL) and HDL-C and TG ( rs7007797; P = 0.0005 for HDL-C and 0.002 for TG). The full set of GEE, FBAT and linkage results are posted at the database of Genotype and Phenotype (dbGaP). After three stages of replication, there was no convincing statistical evidence for association ( i.e., combined P < 10(-5) across all three stages) between any of the tested SNPs and lipid phenotypes. Conclusion: Using a 100K genome-wide scan, we have generated a set of putative associations for common sequence variants and lipid phenotypes. Validation of selected hypotheses in additional samples did not identify any new loci underlying variability in blood lipids. Lack of replication may be due to inadequate statistical power to detect modest quantitative trait locus effects ( i.e., < 1% of trait variance explained) or reduced genomic coverage of the 100K array. GWAS in FHS using a denser genome-wide genotyping platform and a better-powered replication strategy may identify novel loci underlying blood lipids.

  • Genome-wide association analysis identifies loci for type 2 diabetes and triglyceride levels

    • New strategies for prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) require improved insight into disease etiology. We analyzed 386,731 common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 1464 patients with T2D and 1467 matched controls, each characterized for measures of glucose metabolism, lipids, obesity, and blood pressure. With collaborators (FUSION and WTCCC/UKT2D), we identified and confirmed three loci associated with T2D - in a noncoding region near CDKN2A and CDKN2B, in an intron of IGF2BP2, and an intron of CDKAL1 - and replicated associations near HHEX and in SLC30A8 found by a recent whole-genome association study. We identified and confirmed association of a SNP in an intron of glucokinase regulatory protein (GCKR) with serum triglycerides. The discovery of associated variants in unsuspected genes and outside coding regions illustrates the ability of genome-wide association studies to provide potentially important clues to the pathogenesis of common diseases.

  • A common variant of HMGA2 is associated with adult and childhood height in the general population

    • Human height is a classic, highly heritable quantitative trait. To begin to identify genetic variants influencing height, we examined genome-wide association data from 4,921 individuals. Common variants in the HMGA2 oncogene, exemplified by rs1042725, were associated with height (P= 4x10(-8)). HMGA2 is also a strong biological candidate for height, as rare, severe mutations in this gene alter body size in mice and humans, so we tested rs1042725 in additional samples. We confirmed the association in 19,064 adults from four further studies (P= 3x10(-11), overall P= 4x10(-16), including the genome-wide association data). We also observed the association in children (P=1x 10(-6), N= 6,827) and a tall/short case-control study (P= 4x10(-6), N=3,207). We estimate that rs1042725 explains similar to 0.3% of population variation in height (similar to 0.4 cm increased adult height per C allele). There are few examples of common genetic variants reproducibly associated with human quantitative traits; these results represent, to our knowledge, the first consistently replicated association with adult and childhood height.
