rs11571316 is a SNP of the CTLA4 gene. It may influence the susceptibility to schistosomiasis infection in children.

Presence of the ''G'' allele could significantly increase the expression of cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA4) gene [R].

GA genotype was significantly decreased in the patients with schistosomiasis, as compared with the controls (p=0.02) [R].
