Mechanism:

  • A = decreased nitric oxide production [R]

  • G = increased nitric oxide production [R]

The Minor "A" allele is associated with:

  • Increased risk of malaria [R]

  • Increased risk of tuberculosis [R]

The Major "G" allele is associated with:

  • Decreased risk of malaria [R]

  • Decreased risk of tuberculosis [R]
