This study, for the first time, reports that SNW1, along with other NK regulatory genes, plays an important role in RA pathogenesis and might act as potential biomarker for RA. Additionally, these genes might play important roles in RA pathogenesis, as well as facilitate the development of effective targeted therapies. Our integrative data analysis and network-based methods could accelerate the identification of novel drug targets for RA from high-throughput genomic data.
