Having at least one copy of this variant form, rs11701(G), has been associated with an increased incidence of ALS in Scottish and Irish populations studied, but not in populations from the U.S., Sweden, or England. [PMID 16501576]
- rs11701 In Irish amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients, there was a significant allelic association with the rs11701 SNP & a new mutation (K40I) that potentially inhibits angiogenin function.
