  • Possesses significant protein thiol-disulfide oxidase activity.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs4688759) and 19 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.

Poorly characterized protein, may be further investigated using information on cis-encoded genes and eQTLs.

Two SNPs that are 1.2 MB apart, each harbours a replicated trans-pQTLs with Thioredoxin domain-containing protein 12 (TXNDC12). This protein is poorly characterized. Multiple cis-encoded genes with strong eQTLs may be used to elucidate its biological role. rs11715835 tags a 20 order of magnitude stronger association on imputed variant rs143867864. rs143867864 is uncorrelated with rs4688759.

The information gathered here is a result of an attempt to keep track of all interesting information that we encountered while investigating these loci. Please bear in mind that the annotation given here is neither complete nor free of errors, and that all information provided here should be confirmed by additional literature research before being used as a basis for firm conclusions or further experiments.
