  1. The minor allele frequencies (MAFs), odds ratios (ORs), and population attributable risks (PARs) of the best single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the top gene(s) from the 11 late-onset Alzheimer disease genome-wide association studies are shown, where available from the original publications. MAFs of the rs157581 and rs4420638 SNPs were not shown in the original publications and were obtained from the dbSNP database for subjects of European origin. The formula used to calculate PAR was F(OR - 1)/(F(OR - 1) + 1), where F = frequency of the risk allele and OR = odds ratio of the risk allele. Where available, the MAFs, ORs, and PARs emerging from meta-analyses in the AlzGene website are shown for the non-APOE results.
