rs2298566 is a SNP in the MYH15 gene. The risk allele in terms of heart disease is rs2298566(C).
- rs20455, in the KIF6 gene
- rs3900940, in the MYH15 gene
- rs7439293, in the PALLD gene
- rs2298566, in the SNX19 gene
- rs1010, in the VAMP8 gene
For each of the five variants, the GRS was increased by 1 if the subject was homozygous for the risk variant, unchanged if heterozygous, and decreased by 1 if the individual did not carry the variant. Therefore, individuals carrying all 10 possible risk variants (two copies of each of the five SNPs) were assigned a GRS of 5 and those carrying no risk variants a GRS of -5. A high GRS was defined as 3 or higher. Approximately 4% of the white cohort in ARIC was classified as high risk, and the hazard ratio for CHD after adjustment for traditional risk factors was a significant 1.57 (CI: 1.21-2.04; p<0.001). The results did not reproduce for African American participants.[PMID 18073581]
