Background: Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have been used to explore the connections between genotypes and phenotypes by comparing the genotype frequencies of genetic changes in individuals with similar origins but distinct traits.
Objectives: The aim is to employ the GWAS catalog to identify and investigate the various correlations between genotypes and phenotypes of the REST gene.
Methods: In this study, we utilized a large dataset of GWAS comprising 62,218,976 individuals in 112 studies and 122 associations with 122 traits (www.ebi.ac.uk/gwas/genes/REST) from European, Asian, Hispanic, African ancestry up to 28 February 2023. Protein-association network evaluation and gene ontology enrichment study was utilized to evaluate the biological function of the discovered gene modules.
Results: We identified several associations for both neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders linked to REST, as well as its mapped gene modules and their functional relationship networks.
Conclusion: This work offers fresh insights into identifying risk loci of neurological disorders caused by REST.
