Our previous genome-wide association study (GWAS) identified two susceptibility loci for congenital heart disease (CHD) in Han Chinese. Here we identify additional loci by testing promising associations in an extended 3-stage validation consisting of 6,053 CHD cases and 7,410 controls. We find GW significant (P<5.0 x 10(-8)) evidence of 4 additional CHD susceptibility loci at 4q31.22 (rs1400558, upstream of EDNRA, P-all = 1.63 x 10(-9)), 9p24.2 (rs7863990, close to SMARCA2, P-all = 3.71 x 10(-14)), 12q24.13 (rs2433752, upstream of TBX3 and TBX5, P-all = 1.04 x 10(-10)) and 20q12 (rs490514, in PTPRT, P-all = 1.20 x 10(-13)). Moreover, the data from previous European GWAS supports that rs490514 is associated with the risk of CHD (P = 3.40 x 10(-3)). These results enhance our understanding of CHD susceptibility.
