Polymorphism Description:  C___8876467_10 is an ABI Assays-on-DemandTM SNP Genotyping Assay ID. This is a G-to-C substitution at nucleotide 145 of the gene TAS2R38, resulting in an alanine-to-proline substitution at codon 49 (A49P).

The alleles and the flanking sequence are those on the forward strand and the gene is on the complimentary strand.
