      Qiu, Weiliang; Cho, Michael H.; Riley, John H.; Anderson, Wayne H.; Singh, Dave; Bakke, Per; Gulsvik, Amund; Litonjua, Augusto A.; Lomas, David A.; Crapo, James D.; Beaty, Terri H.; Celli, Bartolome R.; Rennard, Stephen I.; Tal-Singer, Ruth; Fox, Steven M.; Silverman, Edwin K.; Hersh, Craig P. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-09-16)
      Previous expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) studies have performed genetic association studies for gene expression, but most of these studies examined lymphoblastoid cell lines from non-diseased individuals. We ...
    • Genome-wide analysis of parent-of-origin interaction effects with environmental exposure (PoOxE): An application to European and Asian cleft palate trios 

      Haaland, Øystein Ariansen; Jugessur, Astanand; Gjerdevik, Miriam; Romanowska, Julia; Shi, Min; Beaty, Terri H.; Marazita, Mary L.; Murray, Jeffrey C.; Wilcox, Allen J.; Lie, Rolv T.; Gjessing, Håkon K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-09-12)
      Cleft palate only is a common birth defect with high heritability. Only a small fraction of this heritability is explained by the genetic variants identified so far, underscoring the need to investigate other disease ...
    • Nitric oxide synthase polymorphisms, gene expression and lung function in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 

      Aminuddin, Farzian; Hackett, Tillie-Louise; Stefanowicz, Dorota; Saferali, Aabida; Paré, Peter D.; Gulsvik, Amund; Bakke, Per; Cho, Michael H.; Litonjua, Augusto A.; Lomas, David A.; Anderson, Wayne H.; Beaty, Terri H.; Silverman, Edwin K.; Sandford, Andrew J. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013-11-06)
      Background: Due to the pleiotropic effects of nitric oxide (NO) within the lungs, it is likely that NO is a significant factor in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aim of this study was ...
