dc.description.abstract Genome-wide association (GWA) studies have identified 19 independent common risk loci for endometriosis. Most of the GWA variants are non-coding and the genes responsible for the association signals have not been identified. Herein, we aimed to assess the potential role of protein-modifying variants in endometriosis using exome-array genotyping in 7164 cases and 21005 controls, and a replication set of 1840 cases and 129016 controls of European ancestry. Results in the discovery sample identified significant evidence for association with coding variants in single-variant (rs1801232-CUBN) and gene-level (CIITA and PARP4) meta-analyses, but these did not survive replication. In the combined analysis, there was genome-wide significant evidence for rs13394619 (P = 2.3 × 10−9) in GREB1 at 2p25.1 — a locus previously identified in a GWA meta-analysis of European and Japanese samples. Despite sufficient power, our results did not identify any protein-modifying variants (MAF > 0.01) with moderate or large effect sizes in endometriosis, although these variants may exist in non-European populations or in high-risk families. The results suggest continued discovery efforts should focus on genotyping large numbers of surgically-confirmed endometriosis cases and controls, and/or sequencing high-risk families to identify novel rare variants to provide greater insights into the molecular pathogenesis of the disease.
dc.description.sponsorship We would like to acknowledge all the study participants in the QIMR, LEUVEN, NHS2, BioVU, WGHS, iPSYCH, and deCODE endometriosis studies that provided an opportunity for the current study. We also thank many hospital directors and staff, gynaecologists, general practitioners and pathology services in Australia, Belgium, the USA, Denmark and Iceland who provided assistance with confirmation of diagnoses. The QIMR study was supported by grants from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) of Australia (241944, 339462, 389927, 389875, 389891, 389892, 389938, 443036, 442915, 442981, 496610, 496739, 552485 and 552498), the Cooperative Research Centre for Discovery of Genes for Common Human Diseases (CRC), Cerylid Biosciences (Melbourne) and donations from N. Hawkins and S. Hawkins. D.R.N. was supported by an NHMRC Fellowship (613674) and ARC Future Fellowship (FT0991022) schemes. G.W.M. (339446, 619667) was supported by the NHMRC Fellowships Scheme. The iPSYCH study was funded by the Lundbeck Foundation, Denmark (R155–2014–1724). The WGHS is supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (HL043851 and HL080467) and the National Cancer Institute (CA047988 and UM1CA182913), with collaborative scientific support and funding for genotyping provided by Amgen. A.P.M is a Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow in Basic Biomedical Science (under award WT098017). The NHS2 is supported by the National Cancer Institute [UM1 CA176726] and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development [HD57210], with funding for white blood cell processing and DNA extraction provided by the Wellcome Trust [WT084766].
