is located on the X chromosome near the androgen receptor gene.
In a genome-wide association study of 5700 dementia-free individuals, 67 patients developed incident vascular dementia over a mean follow-up time of 9.3±3.2 years. The rs12007229(A) allele was associated with this development (odds ratio 3.7, CI: 2.3-5.8, p = 1.3×10e-8). The association was further confirmed in 2 independent populations (probability value of combined replication samples=0.024).[PMID 22116812]
