NPY L7P - GET-Evidence

Note: This variant has not been sufficiently evaluated by a GET-Evidence editor.

To be considered sufficiently evaluated a variant must have both "variant evidence" and "clinical importance" scores filled in.

Please help improve GET-Evidence by evaluating evidence for this variant!

    This non-synonymous variant in the NYP gene was associate with several conditions and diseases in several studies. In obese adults the variant was associates with higher serum levels of total and LDL cholesterol, or in hypertensive subjects with increased risk for myocardial infarction and stroke.The carrier frequency of P7 allele varies from 6% to 15% in the Caucasian populations, and it seems to be totally absent or extremely low in oriental populations.; PubMed ID:18499283; PubMed ID:9846584
