The Minor “A” is associated with:

  • Increased risk in developing prostate cancer (A) [R]

The Major “G” is associated with:

  • Higher risk of liver damage while exposed to BPA, Bisphenol A, which is found certain plastics, such as water bottles and tupperware, as well as resin which coats the interior of metal products (GG) [R].

This SNP is association with (unknown alleles):

  • Association with decreasing pulmonary function due to exposure of phthalate in the environment (n=418 Koreans >60yrs) [R]

  • Nonsyndromic congenital heart disease patients, younger than 6 months old, have a 16-fold increased risk of death or heart transplant after cardiac surgery for their nonsyndromic congenital heart disease if they are homozygous for the at risk allele (n=59) [R]
