General SNP Description

This SNP is associated with Human T-cell Leukemia Virus Type-1 (HTLV-1), Liver Disease and Pulmonary Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria Disease. The T allele at this SNP is associated with increased odds of Liver Disease severity in HIV patients infected with HCV-genotype 3. This SNP is also strongly associated with Pegylated Interferon-α and Ribavirin therapy treatment failure in HCV/HIV-1 coinfected patients. TT genotype at this SNP is significantly independently predictive of rapid virological response , which is the single best predictor of sustained virological response, in Asian HCV-2 patients.The benefit of this gene is in its ability to regulate the immune system in Cancer defense. This gene also displays anti-tumor and anti-viral defense activity in the gut.
