Age, Gene/Environment Susceptibility-Reykjavik Study has been funded by National Institutes of Health (NIH) contract N01-AG-12100, the National Institute on Aging and National Eye Institute Intramural Research Programs at the NIH (ZIAAG007380 and ZIAEY000401), Hjartavernd (the Icelandic Heart Association), and the Althingi (the Icelandic Parliament). The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study is carried out as a collaborative study supported by National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute contracts HHSN268201100005C, HHSN268201100006C, HHSN268201100007C, HHSN268201100008C, HHSN268201100009C, HHSN268201100010C, HHSN268201100011C, HHSN268201100012C, R01HL087641, R01HL59367 and R01HL086694; National Human Genome Research Institute contract U01HG004402; and National Institutes of Health contract HHSN268200625226C. Infrastructure was partly supported by Grant Number UL1RR025005, a component of the National Institutes of Health and NIH Roadmap for Medical Research. The Blue Mountains Eye Study (BMES) was supported by the Australian National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) grants (IDs 974159, 991407, 211069 and 457349). The genome-wide association study was supported by the following grants: NHMRC project grants IDs 512423, 475604, 529912 and 590204, and funding by the Wellcome Trust, UK as part of Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium 2 (A Viswanathan, P McGuffin, P Mitchell, F Topouzis, P Foster), which supported the genotyping costs of the entire BMES population (Grant numbers 085475/B/08/Z and 085475/08/Z). The Cardiovascular Health Study research was supported by National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) contracts N01-HC-85239, N01-HC-85079 through N01-HC-85086; N01-HC-35129, N01 HC-15103, N01 HC-55222, N01-HC-75150, N01-HC-45133 and NHLBI grants HL080295, HL075366, HL087652, HL105756 with additional contribution from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

DNA handling and genotyping was supported in part by the Clinical Translational Science Institute grant UL1RR033176 to the Cedars-Sinai General Clinical Research Center Genotyping core and National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases grant DK063491 to the Southern California Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center. Additional funding was provided by the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors' Chair in Medical Genetics (JIR). The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) and MESA SNP Health Association Resource (SHARe) are conducted and supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in collaboration with MESA investigators. Support is provided by grants and contracts N01 HC-95159 through N01-HC-95169 and RR-024156. Funding for SHARe genotyping was provided by NHLBI Contract N02-HL-6-4278. The authors thank the other investigators, the staff, and the participants of the MESA study for their valuable contributions.
