|| reduction in malarial risk
is a SNP found in the beta hemoglobin HBB
gene, not far from the well-known SNP associated with malarial resistance (rs334
, Hb S). This SNP gives rise to the "Hb E", or hemoglobin E, form of hemoglobin as the HBB forms are commonly named. It is found primarily in Southeast Asia.
rs33950507(A) is associated with somewhat increased malarial resistance, and in homozygous (A;A) state, with mild hypochromic microcytic anemia.[PMID 16114182]
