IthaID: 2650

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Disease modifying mutation Pathogenicity: N/A
Common Name: rs2070744 HGVS Name: NG_011992.1:g.6933C>T

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as: -786T>C, T786C

Comments: The eNOS −786T>C polymorphism is associated with reduced endothelial nitric oxide synthesis. The C-786 allele associated with an upregulation of the adhesion molecule VCAM-1, as well as with upper respiratory tract infection in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) from Northeast Brazil [PMID: 27486304]. It associated with increased susceptibility to acute chest syndrome (ACS) in African-American females with SCD (16-71 years old) [PMID: 14687036]. This association was not replicated in an independent African-American SCD cohort comprised mainly of pediatric patients [PMID: 17351927], while it associated with a decreased risk of ACS in pediatric SCD patients from Guadeloupe [PMID: 16956834]. It associated with occurence of ACS in Egyptian SCD patients [PMID: 26903375]. SNP associated with age onset of menarche in females with SCD from India [PMID: 23795274]. SNP (T allele) associated with lower bilirubin levels in a Portuguese cohort of SCD patients of Sub-Saharan ancestry [PMID: 24168396]. SNP (C allele) associated with retinopathy in Greek patients with severe clinical course of SCD [PMID: 27871907]. SNP (TT genotype) associated with an increased reticulocyte count and high serum lactate dehydrogenase levels in pediatric SCA patients from Portugal [PMID: 27802215].
