Polymorphism Description:  This polymorphism is due to 27-bp deletion (3939-3965) in exon29 of ABCC11 gene. The exon numbering is from analysis of draft sequence of chromosome 16 GenBank Accession No.AC00760 (PMID:11688999). This polymorphism is downstream of the G/A site.

This polymorphism is associated with determination of ear wax type.
