Eight of these 12 highly associated SNPs were within or proximate to known genes {ADDS [adducin 3 (gamma)1, CD47 (CD47 molecule), RPS6KA2 (ribosomal protein S6 kinase, 90kDa, polypeptide 2), KLF6 (Kruppel-like factor 6), PARK2 [parkinson protein 2, E3 ubiquitin protein ligase (parkin)), MSRA (methionine sulfoxide reductase A), NRSNI (neurensin 1), and NRXNI (neurexin 1)} that likely interact through three networks (Figure 1) predicted by multiple binary protein--protein interactions as statistically associated in the curated published literature (Brennan a al.
