[…] nmo-igg−, providing a potentially novel biological hypotheses for seropositive nmo pathogenesis related to low c4 expression. given the complexity of the mhc region, larger studies will be needed to finemap and disentangle the role of classical hla alleles to that of c4 structural variation as well as to understand the effect of these haplotypes on the nmo-igg negative subgroup.

[…] tools to prioritize likely candidate genes and variants. these included the variant effect predictor software to identify deleterious coding variation at genome-wide significant loci (), the finemap software to create configurations of plausible causal snps around each conditionally independent lead snp (), encode maps of dnase i hypersensitivity sites (dhs) , and contextual analysis […]

[…] recent development of novel methods for fine-mapping that utilise meta-analysis summary statistics and a reference panel of ld between variants across a locus, including caviar (), paintor () and finemap (). by modelling ld between variants across a locus, these approaches have the advantage that they can allow for fine-mapping of multiple causal variants, simultaneously. however, caviar […]

[…] utilizing a posterior inclusion probability to choose the causal variant credible interval dap software was then developed () to explore high probability causal intervals with reasonable runtime. finemap () uses logical schema that is similar to that of caviar, but adopts a shotgun stochastic search method to restrict the search space and focus on combinations of high probability intervals., […]

[…] for this cis-element had been proposed previously based on the fact that it was bound by key pancreatic regulators [,,]. within this activating sequence we performed a mutation screen to further finemap the critical bases. notably, two of the mutations that inhibit neurog3 activation were high-affinity binding sites for pdx1, a transcription factor previously shown to be a critical regulator […]
