Chromosome locus 19p13.3 variant tied to increased ARID3A expression and risk of primary biliary cholangitis
April 4, 2023
Primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) is the most common autoimmune liver disease; several genome-wide association studies have suggested chromosome locus 19p13.3 is associated with PBC pathology. Chinese researchers conducted a case-control study to unveil genetic variants in the 19p13.3 locus associated with PBC. The meta-analysis included 1,931 individuals with PBC and 7,852 controls.
