Table 3 Analyses of largely innocuous groups of rare variants

  1. In these binary logistic regressions, the regression coefficient = ln(OR). ¥Includes the carrier of the RAD50 final exon frameshift c.3852del4, which we treat as an in-frame deletion because it should not cause nonsense-mediated decay. One subject (a case) carried both a rare innocuous splice donor variant and a rare silent substitution. For analyses summarized in this table, this subject was categorized as a carrier of an innocuous splice junction variant. Four subjects (one case and three controls) carried both a rare missense substitution and a rare silent substitution. For analyses summarized in this table, these subjects were categorized as carriers of a rare missense substitution. One subject (a case) carried both a rare missense substitution and a rare innocuous splice acceptor variant. For analyses summarized in this table, this subject was categorized as a carrier of a rare missense substitution. Two subjects (one case and one control) carried two rare missense substitutions. In this table, these subjects were categorized as carriers of a rare missense substitution. OR, odds ratio; CI, confidence interval.
