Allelic expression analysis in cartilage samples from OA patients assessed using the 3
UTR SNP rs9659030. The genotypes of the patients at rs9659030, at the OA associated SNP rs2615977 and at the LDH associated SNP rs1676486 are shown. P-values were calculated by comparing the cDNA allelic ratio to the DNA allelic ratio using a Mann–Whitney U test. ** denotes p < 0.01.
