Summary of published research, and additional commentary

Abstract mentions this as having a high allele frequency in the Spanish population, source is unknown (perhaps a meeting abstract?):

Allele frequency

  • A @ chr16:89838086: 2.2% (233/10758) in EVS
  • A @ chr16:88365586: 1.6% (2/128) in GET-Evidence
  • Frequency shown in summary reports: 2.2% (233/10758)
