      Lee, Yunsung; Sun, Dianjianyi; Ori, Anil P.S.; Lu, Ake T.; Seeboth, Anne; Harris, Sarah E.; Deary, Ian J.; Marioni, Riccardo E.; Sørensen, Mette; Mengel-From, Jonas; Hjelmborg, Jacob; Christensen, Kaare; Wilson, James G.; Levy, Daniel; Reiner, Alex P.; Chen, Wei; Li, Shengxu; Harris, Jennifer Ruth; Magnus, Per; Aviv, Abraham; Jugessur, Astanand; Horvath, Steve (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Telomere length is associated with age-related diseases and is highly heritable. It is unclear, however, to what extent epigenetic modifications are associated with leukocyte telomere length (LTL). In this study, we conducted ...
    • Maternal genes and facial clefts in offspring: a comprehensive search for genetic associations in two population-based cleft studies from Scandinavia 

      Jugessur, Astanand; Shi, Min; Gjessing, Håkon K.; Lie, Rolv Terje; Wilcox, Allen James; Weinberg, Clarice Ring; Christensen, Kaare; Boyles, Abee Lowman; Daack-Hirsch, Sandra; Nguyen, Truc Trung; Christiansen, Lene; Lidral, Andrew Carl; Murray, Jeffrey Clark (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2010-07-09)
      Background Fetal conditions can in principle be affected by the mother's genotype working through the prenatal environment. Methodology/Principal Findings Genotypes for 1536 SNPs in 357 cleft candidate genes were available ...
    • X-Linked Genes and Risk of Orofacial Clefts: Evidence from Two Population-Based Studies in Scandinavia 

      Jugessur, Astanand; Skare, Øivind; Lie, Rolv Terje; Wilcox, Allen James; Christensen, Kaare; Christiansen, Lene; Nguyen, Truc Trung; Murray, Jeffrey Clark; Gjessing, Håkon K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-06-19)
      Background: Orofacial clefts are common birth defects of complex etiology, with an excess of males among babies with cleft lip and palate, and an excess of females among those with cleft palate only. Although genes on the ...
