A functional SNP upstream of the ADRB2 gene is associated with COPD

PMCID: 5859892
PMID: 29588580
DOI: 10.2147/COPD.S151153

[…] B2 is also expressed in lymphoblastoid cells, and it is interesting to know whether this variant is correlated with the expression of ADRB2 in lymphoblastoid cells. To address this issue, we utilized eQTL browser (http://eqtl.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/gbrowse/eqtl/), which collected published eQTL data of lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCL) from four HapMap populations to search for potential association. […]


A CREB1 Gene Polymorphism (rs2253206) Is Associated with Prospective Memory in a Healthy Cohort

PMCID: 5432533
PMID: 28559802
DOI: 10.3389/fnbeh.2017.00086

[…] e in transfected mouse skeletal muscle cell lines. In order to further explore how rs2253206 might affect CREB1 expression in areas of the brain that are involved in memory processes we used the GTEx eQTL Browser to investigate CREB1 mRNA levels. CREB1 is expressed in brain-related tissues (shown in yellow) and most highly in the cerebellum, but is at lower levels than some tissues where it is hig […]


A genome wide association study identifies six novel risk loci for primary biliary cholangitis

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5429142
PMID: 28425483
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms14828
call_split See protocol

[…] IMPUTE2 software version 2.2.2 and version 3 of 1000 Genomes Project data as the reference set.We used seeQTL (http://www.bios.unc.edu/research/genomic_software/seeQTL/) and the University of Chicago eQTL browser (http://eqtl.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/gbrowse/eqtl/) to identify eQTLs amongst significant variants. eQTLs that are in high linkage disequilibrium (r2>0.8) with the most strongly associated S […]


Increased brain expression of GPNMB is associated with genome wide significant risk for Parkinson’s disease on chromosome 7p15.3

PMCID: 5522530
PMID: 28391543
DOI: 10.1007/s10048-017-0514-8

[…] ncluding Gene, dbGaP, OMIM, GTEx, and dbSNP. The eQTL data consists of 1269 samples from 7 tissues. The data is available at NCBI’s PheGenI website (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gap/phegeni) or in the eQTL browser (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/projects/gap/eqtl/index.cgi). CAGEseq data was obtained from a previous published study consisting 119 FCTX samples. eQTL analysis was performed using Matrix […]


Genome wide association analysis of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma identifies pleiotropic risk loci

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5253627
PMID: 28112199
DOI: 10.1038/srep41071

[…] e-seq peaks of open chromatin, FAIRE peaks of open chromatin, TFBS SPP-based peaks, TFBS PeakSeq-based peaks and Histone peaks. In addition, eQTLs were determined using several eQTL databases, namely eQTL Browser, GTEx and seeQTL. Common networks were identified using GeneMANIA. This database collated data on protein and genetic interactions from a number of sources, including BioGRID, InterPro, R […]
