Role in skin pigmentation
Candille et. al 2012 (→ http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0048294) found that, in Europeans, two sites of this gene are best fits for skin color variation (fig. 5 and table 2).
"For skin pigmentation, one SNP on chromosome 3 in the FLNB gene almost reaches genome-wide significance (p-value = 1.8×10−7)".
It's surely worth mentioning, especially because other alleged skin color genes do not seem to have obvious effects within Europe.

- indeed it does seem worthwhile, and it would be most welcome. --- cariaso 15:51, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
