Polymorphism Description:  This is a A/G SNP in the coding region of SLC24A5 gene. This SNP results in non-synonymous substitution Alanine(GCA) -> Threonine(ACA) at aminoacid position 111 of the gene. The derived allele (T= Thr) has been associated with light skin pigmentation in Europe and is common in Europe, Southwest Asia, and Central Asia. This SNP has shown evidence of natural selection. This SNP is commonly included in panels of ancestry informative SNPs and in phenotype informative markers.
