Bottom Line: Although no SNPs were identified as associated with OCD at genome-wide significance level, follow-up analyses of genome-wide association study (GWAS) signals from a previously published OCD study identified significant enrichment (P=0.0176).Analyses at the gene level revealed association of IQCK and C16orf88 (both P<1 × 10(-)(6), experiment-wide significant), as well as OFCC1 (P=6.29 × 10(-)(5)).The suggestive findings in this study await replication in larger samples.

ABSTRACT
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a psychiatric condition characterized by intrusive thoughts and urges and repetitive, intentional behaviors that cause significant distress and impair functioning. The OCD Collaborative Genetics Association Study (OCGAS) is comprised of comprehensively assessed OCD patients with an early age of OCD onset. After application of a stringent quality control protocol, a total of 1065 families (containing 1406 patients with OCD), combined with population-based samples (resulting in a total sample of 5061 individuals), were studied. An integrative analyses pipeline was utilized, involving association testing at single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and gene levels (via a hybrid approach that allowed for combined analyses of the family- and population-based data). The smallest P-value was observed for a marker on chromosome 9 (near PTPRD, P=4.13 × 10(-)(7)). Pre-synaptic PTPRD promotes the differentiation of glutamatergic synapses and interacts with SLITRK3. Together, both proteins selectively regulate the development of inhibitory GABAergic synapses. Although no SNPs were identified as associated with OCD at genome-wide significance level, follow-up analyses of genome-wide association study (GWAS) signals from a previously published OCD study identified significant enrichment (P=0.0176). Secondary analyses of high-confidence interaction partners of DLGAP1 and GRIK2 (both showing evidence for association in our follow-up and the original GWAS study) revealed a trend of association (P=0.075) for a set of genes such as NEUROD6, SV2A, GRIA4, SLC1A2 and PTPRD. Analyses at the gene level revealed association of IQCK and C16orf88 (both P<1 × 10(-)(6), experiment-wide significant), as well as OFCC1 (P=6.29 × 10(-)(5)). The suggestive findings in this study await replication in larger samples.

Manhattan plot for OCGAS GWASShown are the result for the hybrid analysis of the within and between family component of the OCGAS GWAS. A thin blue line indicates level of suggestive evidence for association (1 × 10−5) and a thin red line indicates genome-wide significance (5 × 10−8).

Figure 1: Manhattan plot for OCGAS GWASShown are the result for the hybrid analysis of the within and between family component of the OCGAS GWAS. A thin blue line indicates level of suggestive evidence for association (1 × 10−5) and a thin red line indicates genome-wide significance (5 × 10−8).

Mentions: Analysis of the 549 123 autosomal markers revealed a nominally significant result at the level of α=0.05 for 27 283 markers. Among these, 456 markers reached a P-value of less than 0.001 and 54 markers were identified with a P<0.0001. As expected due to the stringent study design, no evidence for population stratification was observed (see also Supplementary Figure S1). Figure 1 shows the ‘Manhattan’ plot of the association results across the autosomal genome and Table 1 reports the association between single SNPs and OCD with P<1×10−5. No marker tested for association met the standard of genome-wide significance. The smallest P-value for our study was observed with a marker on chromosome 9 (rs4401971) at a P-value of 4.13×10−7. This SNP is 1.28 Mb from the 5′ end of the protein tyrosine phosphatase, receptor type, D gene (PTPRD, isoform 1; according to RefSeq). The second most significantly associated SNP (rs6876547, P=1.76×10−6) is located in a region of cadherin clusters and it is of note, that a second, independent SNP (rs6452234, P=1.13×10−5, r2<0.2, distance ~650kb) is located in the same region. The nearest flanking protein coding genes are the cadherin 9, type 2 (CDH9, 1 308 kb) and the cadherin 10, type 2 (CDH10, 927 kb) genes. A ‘regional association plot’ of these two top regions is provided in Figure 2.
