Investigation of the role of copy number variation in the susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic systemic autoimmune disease characterised by immune complex deposition and production of autoantibodies against nuclear antigens (ANA). The aetiology of SLE is complex; however, twin and genome-wide association (GWA) studies clearly indicate that SLE has a strong genetic component. Most recently, Copy Number Variations (CNVs) have been shown to be ubiquitously present in unrelated healthy subjects and contribute substantially to phenotypic...[Show more]
