Linked to bipolar disorder in one of the most comprehensive studies in 2007. Risk allele with reference to dbSNP orientation is reported to be (T), with either one or two copies leading to an odds ratio of 2 (CI 1.6-2.7). [PMID 17554300]

Some replications, but in 2011 23andMe published as failed to replicate in 10.1371/journal.pone.0023473
