IthaID: 2668

Names and Sequences

Functionality: Disease modifying mutation
Common Name: rs1800629 HGVS Name: NG_007462.1:g.4682G>A

Context nucleotide sequence:

Also known as: –308G>A

Comments: The TNF (-308)A variant associated with protection from stroke (large vessel subtype) in pediatric sickle cell disease (SCD) patients acquired from the Cooperative Study of Sickle Cell Disease (CSSCD) (n=230) [PMID: 14615367]. The association was replicated in an independent pediatric sample with SCD, acquired from the multicenter Stroke Prevention Trial in Sickle Cell Anemia (STOP) (45 cases; 45 controls) [PMID: 17600229] but not in a sample acquired from the Stroke With Transfusion Changing to Hydrxyurea (SWiTCH) trial (130 cases; 103 controls enrolled from the HUSTLE study) [PMID: 21515823]. This variant also associated with a low serum ferritin concentration in the African American population [PMID: 27332551]. The TNF (-308)G allele was prevalent among Brazilian patients with sickle cell disease (n=240) [PMID: 24391023]. SNP (allele A) associated with an increased risk of acute cerebral ischemia in a pediatric Brazilian cohort with SCA (n=395) [PMID: 27520094].
