rs16139 is a SNP in the NPY gene. It is significantly associated with Major depressive disorder (MDD) [R].

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is characterized by reduced neuropeptide Y (NPY) activity. The depression risk ''T'' allele is associated with a reduced NPY production, and hence increases the risk for MDD [R].
