Comments: SNP associated with risk of cholelithiasis and variation in bilirubin levels in the Cooperative Study of Sickle Cell Disease (CSSCD; n=1117). The association with bilirubin levels was replicated in three independent studies, namely, the Pulmonary Hypertension and Sickle Cell Disease with Sildenafil Therapy (Walk-PHaSST; n=522), the Outcome Modifying Genes study (n=530) and the SITT silent cerebral infarct trial (n=905). This SNP overlaps the UGT1A6, UGT1A7, UGT1A8, UGT1A9 and UGT1A10 genes within the UGT1A locus. The UGT1A6 polymorphism also associated with the therapeutic response to deferiprone in individuals from India with β-thalassemia major (n=286).

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
