Polymorphism Description: This is a G/A SNP in the coding region of ABCC11 gene. This SNP results in non-synonymous change Glycine(GGG) -> Arginine(AGG) at aminoacid position 180 of the gene.
This SNP determines the earwax type (PMID: 16444273). According to their study dry earwax is frequent in East Asians, whereas wet earwax is common in other populations. Allele A is associated with dry earwax type. This SNP is the first example of DNA polymorphism determing a visible genetic trait.
C__25999969_20 is an ABI Assays-on-DemandTM SNP Genotyping Assay ID. This assay types the reverse strand and the corresponding alleles are C and T respectively.
