• The SNP is within the Acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase beta (ACACB) gene (R).
  • The gene is important in fatty acid synthesis and preventing fatty acid oxidation (R).

The T (minor) allele is associated with:

  • Protection against lowering of LDL cholesterol levels (R).

  • Increased levels of LDL cholesterol within the blood in patients taking antipsychotics (R).
