is one of 6 SNPs found upstream of an (uncharacterized) gene known as FLJ10986 that have been found to be overrepresented in patients with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS
A genome-wide association study of 1,152 ALS patients determined an allelic odds ratio of 1.38 for the rs6700125(T) allele (CI: 1.16-1.65, p=0.00032). The genotypic odds ratio presented were 1.76 (CI: 1.22-2.55) and 1.2 (CI: 0.83-1.73) for homozygotes and heterozygotes, respectively.[PMID 17671248]
- Note: this SNP is in strong linkage disequilibrium with rs6690993 (r2>0.8)
[PMID 19177248] A study involving a large case-control series from the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Ireland (total: 1883 sporadic ALS patients and 2063 controls) found no significant association between sporadic ALS and the six previously reported associated SNPs, including this one.
