The Minor "A" allele is associated with:

  • 4X risk of Parkinson's (with bad HO-1 SNP) (AA)
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Inhibiting GSK3B in neuronal cells helps protect against oxidative stress (R).

This SNP is associated with (unknown which allele):

  • GSK3B is involved in energy metabolism, neuronal cell development, and body pattern formation (R).
  • Oxidative stress, which works by increasing GSK3B levels,  is a well-known inducer of neuronal destruction and axonal degeneration (R). Therefore, it seems like this gene will result in higher GSK3B and risk of Parkinson's, Anxiety and Depression.
