Abstract<p> Over 90 regions of the genome have been associated with lung function to date, many of which have also been implicated in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. We carried out meta-analyses of exome array data and three lung function measures: forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV ), forced vital capacity (FVC) and the ratio of FEV to FVC (FEV /FVC). These analyses by the SpiroMeta and CHARGE consortia included 60,749 individuals of European ancestry from 23 studies, and 7,721 individuals of African Ancestry from 5 studies in the discovery stage, with follow-up in up to 111,556 independent individuals. We identified significant (P<2·8x10 ) associations with six SNPs: a nonsynonymous variant in , which is predicted to be damaging, three intronic SNPs ( and ) and two intergenic SNPs near to and Expression quantitative trait loci analyses found evidence for regulation of gene expression at three signals and implicated several genes, including and . Further interrogation of these loci could provide greater understanding of the determinants of lung function and pulmonary disease.</p>
