rs1672879 is a SNP in the scavenger receptor class B, member 1 SCARB1 gene which encodes a cholesterol membrane transporter.

A study including African (n = 914), Hispanic (n = 464), and European (n = 1203) American postmenopausal women from the Women’s Health Initiative assessed SNP associations and serum concentrations of lycopene. In the resulting meta-analysis, rs1672879(C) allele, as oriented in dbSNP, was associated with lycopene concentrations (p < 2.68 × 10e−9), with each C allele resulting in a 12% decrease in lycopene concentrations for African Americans, a 20% decrease for Hispanic Americans, and a 9% decrease for European Americans. 10.3945/​jn.114.202150
