Mechanism:

  • Normal levels of Insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2R) (CC).
  • Normal levels of IGF2R (C).
  • Unknown change to IGF2R. More research needs to be done (G) [R].

The Minor "G" allele is associated with:

  • Increased risk of developing Colon Cancer [R].
  • Possible decreased birth weight [R]. More research must be done to confirm this.

The Major "C" allele is associated with:

  • Decreased risk of developing Colon Cancer [R].
  • Increased birth weight [R].
