You've indicated MYH6 c.2161 is rs2231801, and if so I'm happy to 'move' the page, but I don't actually understand how you've reached that conclusion. Could you please clarify? cariaso 23:29, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I've misinterpreted the 23andMe report on sick sinus syndrome, which identified rs2231801 and lists PMID 21378987 as the reference. That is a SNP in a different gene. Looking further, the paper appears to report "a rare variant in MYH6" "c.2161C>T" as rs28730774. --Kay

the newer rs# your propose is at position 2060, but we need 2161. I'm afraid no rs# exists yet, and have mede the relevant changes. cariaso 09:35, 17 July 2011 (UTC)


LOAD looks a lot a HUGO gene name (although it isn't one) so the non existent http://www.snpedia.com/index.php?title=LOAD acts like a gene. Populating the page with Alzheimer's specific info (or a redirect) will resolve that, but I don't think introducing LOAD is a great idea. If we start accepting all caps acronyms as first class pages, we should assign AD as Alzheimer's Disease, T2D as .... So far I've avoided this intentionally. There are just too many acronyms with even more meanings. Please stick with the expanded names for page titles, and limit the all caps acronyms to page text. [[Late-Onset Alzheimer's Disease|LOAD]] is also appropriate. --- cariaso 17:22, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

OK. Taking them back out. --Kay
