Figure 1

The workflow of genetic association study of ATG5 by trans-eQTL. (a) eQTL: expression quantitative trait loci, eSNP: expression single nucleotide polymorphism, HWE: Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, LN: lupus nephritis, MAF: minor allele frequency, PCA: principle component analysis, and SLE: systemic lupus erythematosus. (b) The online eQTL database: mRNA by SNP Browser v 1.0.1, (c) HaploReg v3 database: RegulomeDB database: (d) GENEVAR project: the Gene Expression Variation project, (e) The ArrayExpress Archive database:
