Each of at least 200 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been confirmed to be associated with individually small increases in the risk of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). A key function that could mediate SNP encoded MS risk is their regulatory effects on gene expression or splicing.
Transcriptomic profiling was performed using Affymetrix gene-expression microarrays, using RNA extracted from purified human peripheral blood monocytes, CD4 and CD8 positive lymphocyte cells, B-lymphocyte cells and Natural Killer cells from 73 untreated MS cases and 97 healthy controls. Cis expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) mapping studies were performed in each cell type separately to characterize MS risk loci associated with gene expression change.
