rs1024611, also known as the -2578A>G SNP due to its position in the promoter of the monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 MCP-1 CCL2 gene, influences the production of its corresponding protein, a chemokine involved in inflammatory responses.
In a study focusing on 679 apparently healthy siblings of people with premature heart disease, investigators found that carriers of an rs1024611(C) allele - oriented as in dbSNP, not as published - independently predicted the risk of exercise induced ischemia in general. The odds ratio was reported to be 1.86 (CI: 1.14-3.04, p=0.014), regardless of race, age, sex and other factors. However, it is not clear if this risk carries over to individuals who lack siblings with heart disease.[PMID 16934270]
