After publication of this work [1], we noted the following errors in describing the genotype of rs7705343. In Table 3 of the main text and Table S3 of the supplementary material, SNP genotype names GG and AA need to switch order. Also, the GG genotype should be the AA genotype in the fifth paragraph of the Results and the fifth paragraph of the Discussion.
