Observed vs expected genotypic load among families. The mean genotypic load for each family was plotted against the mean genotypic load for a family of the same configuration, as determined by simulation. Each dot represents one family. Triangles mark the lower 2.5% confidence bound, whereas diamonds mark the upper 97.5% confidence bound. The slope of the line for the individual families' genotypic loads is 0.4594.

Distribution of mean genotypic load among families. We calculated the mean familial genotypic load for individuals in the 65 families who have genotype and phenotype information available on all siblings and in the 257 families who did not have genotype and/or phenotype information available on all siblings. The number of individuals in each genotypic load category is shown here for the 65 (a) and 257 (b) families. There was no statistically significant difference between these two distributions (P=0.11, χ2-test).

(a) Distribution of slopes for plots of mean genotypic load across all simulation families vs individual families' genotypic loads from each simulation subset of 322 families, by family configuration. The arrow indicates the location of the slope from Figure 3 within the tail of this distribution. (b) Distribution of slopes for plots of mean genotypic load across all simulation families, in which the simulation included a rare, high-penetrance allele, vs genotypic loads from each simulation subset of 322 families, by family configuration. Please note the difference in the x axis scale between panels a and b. The distribution of values in panel b is shifted to values lower than that of panel a.

Estimated prevalence of advanced AMD cases as a function of genetic load. Using genotyping data from a case–control study of AMD, 36 risk categories were determined on the basis of genotypes at the five common risk loci.10 The estimated risk of developing advanced AMD for each of these risk categories was calculated. These risk categories are sorted by the estimated risk of advanced AMD. The table below the figure shows the specific genotypes for each bin. For CFH, the L/M/H designations correspond to low-, medium- and high-risk haplotypes. The LOC387715 L/H designation corresponds to low- and high-risk alleles. For C2/BF, the L or H designation corresponds to low- or high-risk genotypes.
