This SNP affects the risk of developing tuberculosis. [1]

The AA genotype was found to be more significantly associated with tuberculosis. Allele frequencies for guanine (G) and A were found to be 0.95 and 0.05 in the control group and 0.86 and 0.14 in the TB patient group, respectively. The risk of developing [tuberculosis] was increased 6.04- and 1.60-fold for carriers of the AA and GA genotypes, respectively.

The variant of rs5743708 known as Arg753Gln or R753Q appears to protect against Lyme disease. [PMID 16081826]
