Supplementary Material

The supplementary materials have provide information about the association analyses between the positive trans-eSNPs genotypes and severity and outcome of LN patients and the bioinformation analyses of these trans-eSNPs in RegulomeDB and HaploReg v3 databases. As shown in Supplementary Table 1, no significant differences were observed between the clinical features and the different genotypes of the positive trans-eSNPs of ATG5. In Supplementary Table 2, the trans-SNPs with scores between 1 and 4 were listed and Supplementary Table 3 showed the scoring standard in RegulomeDB database. And searching by HaploReg v3, the regulatory effects of the positive trans-eSNPs and the SNPs in strong linkage disequilibrium (r2 ≥ 0.8) with them were shown in Supplementary Table 4.
