dc.description.abstractRapid progress of the discovery of genetic loci associated with common, complex diseases has outpaced the elucidation of mechanisms pertinent to disease pathogenesis. To address relevant barriers for coronary artery disease (CAD), we combined genetic discovery analyses with downstream characterization of likely causal variants, genes, and biological pathways. Specifically, we conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) comprising 181,522 predominantly European ancestry cases of CAD among 1,165,690 participants. We detected 241 associations, including 54 associations and 30 loci not previously linked to CAD. Cross-ancestry meta-analysis with a large Japanese GWAS yielded 38 additional novel loci. Similarity-based clustering suggested roles for early developmental processes, cell cycle signaling, and vascular cell migration and proliferation in the pathogenesis of CAD. We then prioritized likely causal variants using functionally-informed fine-mapping, yielding 42 associations with fewer than five variants in the 95% credible set. Combining eight complementary approaches, we prioritized 220 candidate causal genes, including 123 genes supported by three or more approaches. Using CRISPR-Cas9 at one of our risk loci, we experimentally validated the effect of an enhancer in MYO9B, which appears to mediate CAD risk via regulation of vascular cell motility. Our analysis identifies and systematically characterizes >250 risk loci for CAD to inform experimental interrogation of putative causal mechanisms for CAD.
