Mechanism:

  • Decreased production of nitric oxide (G) [R]

  • Increased production of nitric oxide (C) [R]

The Minor "T" allele is associated with:

  • Increased risk of age-related macular degeneration given smoking history [R]

The Major "C" allele is associated with:

  • Decreased risk of age-related macular degeneration given smoking history [R]

This SNP is associated with (unknown  which alleles):
