Mechanism:

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

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

The Minor "A" allele is associated with:

  • Increased risk of hypertension in the Finnish population [R]

The Major "G" allele is associated with:

  • Decreased risk of hypertension in the Finnish population [R]

This SNP is associated with (unknown  which alleles):

  • Increased risk for coronary heart disease [R]

  • Increase risk for rheumatoid arthritis [R]

  • Increased oxidative stress [R]
