Rs1532624 is a SNP on the gene that codes for Cholesteryl Ester Transfer Protein (CETP) gene.  CETP is in charge of transferring lipids, such as cholesteryl ester, from high density lipoprotein (HDL) to other lipoproteins.  Mutations in this gene may result in Hyperalphalipoproteinemia [R].

Mechanisms:

  • C = High CETP activity

  • A = Low CETP activity [R]

The “A” minor allele is associated with:

  • High levels of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) [R]

This SNP is associated with (unknown which alleles):

  • Weight loss [R]

  • Increased risk of heart attack (women) [R]

Diabetic nephropathy [R]
