Adiponectin (Hum Mol Genet 2014)

We carried out GWAS meta-analysis (imputed to HapMap2) for adiponectin levels in up to 7,825 East Asians. Each study performed study-specific sample and variant quality control. Within each study, residuals of lipid traits were computed by including age, sex, BMI, and other study-specific covariates in a linear regression model. Inverse normalized residuals were used to test genotype-phenotype relationships with variants under the additive model. We then carried out fixed-effects sample-size weighted meta-analysis as implemented in METAL. 

The file contains association summary statistics for the AGEN meta-analysis of 4 studies (CLHNS, KCPS-II, NHAPC, and SP2). 

Each file contains the following information:

  1. CHR: chromosome
  2. POS: position (hg19)
  4. N: Total sample size
  5. EFF_ALLELE: Effect allele
  6. NONEFF_ALLELE: Other allele
  7. EFF_ALLELE_FREQ: Effect allele frequency
  8. BETA: Effect estimate (gc-corrected)
  9. SEBETA: Standard error of effect estimate (gc-corrected)
  10. P: P-value (gc-corrected)
