    • Genetic Predisposition to Multiple Myeloma at 5q15 Is Mediated by an ELL2 Enhancer Polymorphism. 

      Li, N; Johnson, DC; Weinhold, N; Kimber, S; Dobbins, SE; Mitchell, JS; Kinnersley, B; Sud, A; Law, PJ; Orlando, G; Scales, M; Wardell, CP; Försti, A; Hoang, PH; Went, M; Holroyd, A; Hariri, F; Pastinen, T; Meissner, T; Goldschmidt, H; Hemminki, K; Morgan, GJ; Kaiser, M; Houlston, RS (2017-09)
      Multiple myeloma (MM) is a malignancy of plasma cells. Genome-wide association studies have shown that variation at 5q15 influences MM risk. Here, we have sought to decipher the causal variant at 5q15 and the mechanism by ...
    • Genome-wide association study identifies multiple susceptibility loci for multiple myeloma. 

      Mitchell, JS; Li, N; Weinhold, N; Försti, A; Ali, M; van Duin, M; Thorleifsson, G; Johnson, DC; Chen, B; Halvarsson, B-M; Gudbjartsson, DF; Kuiper, R; Stephens, OW; Bertsch, U; Broderick, P; Campo, C; Einsele, H; Gregory, WA; Gullberg, U; Henrion, M; Hillengass, J; Hoffmann, P; Jackson, GH; Johnsson, E; Jöud, M; Kristinsson, SY; Lenhoff, S; Lenive, O; Mellqvist, U-H; Migliorini, G; Nahi, H; Nelander, S; Nickel, J; Nöthen, MM; Rafnar, T; Ross, FM; da Silva Filho, MI; Swaminathan, B; Thomsen, H; Turesson, I; Vangsted, A; Vogel, U; Waage, A; Walker, BA; Wihlborg, A-K; Broyl, A; Davies, FE; Thorsteinsdottir, U; Langer, C; Hansson, M; Kaiser, M; Sonneveld, P; Stefansson, K; Morgan, GJ; Goldschmidt, H; Hemminki, K; Nilsson, B; Houlston, RS (2016-07)
      Multiple myeloma (MM) is a plasma cell malignancy with a significant heritable basis. Genome-wide association studies have transformed our understanding of MM predisposition, but individual studies have had limited power ...
    • Multiple myeloma risk variant at 7p15.3 creates an IRF4-binding site and interferes with CDCA7L expression. 

      Li, N; Johnson, DC; Weinhold, N; Studd, JB; Orlando, G; Mirabella, F; Mitchell, JS; Meissner, T; Kaiser, M; Goldschmidt, H; Hemminki, K; Morgan, GJ; Houlston, RS (2016-11-24)
      Genome-wide association studies have identified several risk loci for multiple myeloma (MM); however, the mechanisms by which they influence MM are unknown. Here by using genetic association data and functional characterization, ...
    • Search for rare protein altering variants influencing susceptibility to multiple myeloma. 

      Scales, M; Chubb, D; Dobbins, SE; Johnson, DC; Li, N; Sternberg, MJ; Weinhold, N; Stein, C; Jackson, G; Davies, FE; Walker, BA; Wardell, CP; Houlston, RS; Morgan, GJ (2017-05)
      The genetic basis underlying the inherited risk of developing multiple myeloma (MM) is largely unknown. To examine the impact of rare protein altering variants on the risk of developing MM we analyzed high-coverage exome ...
