Multivariate analysis of genome-wide data to identify potential pleiotropic genes for five major psychiatric disorders using MetaCCA.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Genome-wide association studies have been extensively applied in identifying SNP associated with major psychiatric disorders. However, the SNPs identified by the prevailing univariate approach only explain a small percentage of the genetic variance of traits, and the extensive data have shown the major psychiatric disorders have common biological mechanisms and the overlapping pathophysiological pathways. METHODS:We applied the genetic pleiotropy-informed metaCCA method on summary statistics data from the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium Cross-Disorder Group to examine the overlapping genetic relations between the five major psychiatric disorders. Furthermore, to refine all genes, we performed gene-based association analyses for the five disorders respectively using VEGAS2. Gene enrichment analysis was applied to explore the potential functional significance of the identified genes. RESULTS:After metaCCA analysis, 1147 SNPs reached the Bonferroni corrected threshold (p?
