Activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) is associated with risk of thrombosis and coagulation disorders. We conducted a genome-wide association study for aPTT and identified significant associations with SNPs in three coagulation cascade genes, F12 (rs2731672, combined p = 2.16 x 10(-30)), KNG1 (rs710446, combined p = 9.52 x 10(-22)), and HRG (rs9898, combined p = 1.34 x 10(-11)). These three SNPs explain approximately 18% of phenotypic variance in aPTT in the Lothian Birth Cohorts.
