General SNP Description

This SNP is associated with sub-maximal exercise heart rate training response, which is essentially any exercise for which intensity is increased at regular intervals, but never exceeds 85% of maximum heart rate. The function of this gene acts as a co-activator of transcriptional activity for TGF-Beta/Smad pathway, which is an important pathway for each cell that regulates cell growth, cell differentiation, cell death, regulate cell functions, carcinogenesis among other cellular processes. Inside the cell this gene is primarily expressed in the nucleus. This gene is also expressed strongly in the heart, prostate, intestine, ovary and poorly in the skeletal muscle, spleen, thymus, brain and peripheral leukocytes.
