rs16890979 is a SNP in the SLC2A9 gene. It is significantly associated with uric acid (UA) levels in the blood.

The ''C'' allele was associated with higher uric acid (UA) levels [R] and Gout [R].

The ''C'' allele was associated with gout in patients with decreased uric acid excretion (underexcretors) [R].

The T/T genotype was higher in patients with gouty arthritis [R].

Disease/Trait: Uric Acid Measurement

rs16890979 is associated with Uric Acid Measurement (R) . It is reported to have a 0.44 mg/dl decrease in uric serum levels on Uric acid levels. No specific risk allele was identified in the study.

Disease/Trait: Urate Measurement

The C allele of rs16890979 is reported to be associated with Urate Measurement (R) . Your genotype was not identified for this SNP so we are unable to comment on your association with Urate levels in lean individuals (Men).

Disease/Trait: Underweight Body Mass Index Status

The C allele of rs16890979 is reported to be associated with Underweight Body Mass Index Status (R) . Your genotype was not identified for this SNP so we are unable to comment on your association with Urate levels in lean individuals (Men).

Disease/Trait: Uric Acid Measurement

The A allele of rs16890979 is reported to be associated with Uric Acid Measurement (R) . Your genotype was not identified for this SNP so we are unable to comment on your association with Serum uric acid levels.
