Associated with smoking phenotype (p=0.007) based on association study of 2,000+ individuals, and functional studies demonstrated that the risk allele decreased response to a nicotine agonist, therefore the rs16969968(A) allele is likely to be involved in nicotine dependence.[PMID 18519524]
A study of 200 individuals replicated the association between this SNP and nicotine dependence, and also concluded that the rs16969968(A) allele was significantly associated with "enhanced pleasurable responses" to a person's first cigarette.[PMID 18783506]
rs16969968 increases susceptibility to Substance dependence, Nicotine 1.10 times for heterozygotes (AG) and 1.90 times for homozygotes (AA) [PMID 17135278]
