CKDGEN Meta-Analysis Data

These files contain the summary meta-analysis data from the CKDGen consortium for the following 5 traits from the Kottgen et al. 2010 and Boger et al. 2011 publications:

  1.  eGFRcrea (n=67,093)
  2.  eGFRcyse (n=20,957)
  3.  CKD (n=62,237)
  4.  UACR (n=31,580)
  5.  MA (n=30482)


(These are .csv zipped files)

Within each file, the data are presented as follows:

  • rsID, allele1, allele2, freqA1, direction, pval
  • Allele1=the coded allele
  • Allele2=noncoded allele
  • FreqA1 is the frequency of allele1 from the Hapmap CEU sample
  • Direction refers to the direction of effect for allele1. Can be +/-/0.
  • The p-value is the double GC corrected p-value.

  • Table 4: eGFR meta-analysis results for top associated SNP within each Mendelian kidney disease gene
  • Table 5: CKD meta-analysis results for top eGFR associated SNP within each Mendelian kidney disease  gene
  • Table 6: Complete eGFR meta-analysis results of all SNPs in the 258 Mendelian kidney disease genes
