The Minor "G" allele is associated with:

  • Lower production of LXR beta protein.
  • Increased protection against Type 2 diabetes (GG). 
  • Results are contrary to what one would expect based on the results in LXR in mice.
  • May regulate overall glucose homeostasis through other mechanisms and in other organs in humans (R).

The Major "C" allele is associated with:

  • Increased levels of LXR protein production (R).
  • Increased protection against tuberculosis (R).
