dc.description.abstract Abstract The regulatory contribution that single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with psychiatric and cognitive phenotypes make to multimorbidity is unknown. Here, we integrate 3D genome organization and expression quantitative trait (eQTL) analyses to identify the genes and biological pathways that are functionally impacted by 2,893 GWAS SNPs associated with cognitive functioning and five psychiatric disorders (i.e. attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, bipolar disorder (BD), unipolar depression (UD) and schizophrenia (SCZ)). The analysis revealed 33 genes and 62 pathways that were commonly affected by the gene regulatory interactions associated with all six phenotypes despite there being no common SNPs and eQTLs. 38 ADHD-, 78 anxiety-, 81 BD-, 169 UD-, 225 SCZ- and 185 cognition-associated genes represent known drug targets. Four genes were affected by eQTLs from all six phenotypes. Collectively, our results represent the foundation for a shift from a gene-targeted towards a pathway-based approach to the treatment of multimorbid conditions.
