rs80338794, also known as R39C or Arg39Cys, is a rare mutation in the sialin protein SLC17A5 gene leading to Salla disease, a neurodegenerative disease primarily associated with Finland and Sweden.
Note that 23andMe reports this from the other strand as a G>A SNP rather than a C>T as defined in dbSNP.
