LD mapping of maternally and non-maternally derived alleles and atopy in FcepsilonRI-beta.
Polymorphisms in the beta chain of the high affinity receptor for IgE (Fc epsilon RI-beta, MS4A2) are consistently associated with traits underlying asthma and atopy (immunoglobulin E-mediated allergy). However, the causal variants and haplotypes underlying disease have not yet been identified. Maternal effects, with association confined to maternally derived alleles, have been shown in some studies but not in others. We have therefore extended the known sequence and systematically detected p...Expand abstract
