rs599839 is a SNP found to be associated with heart disease by the German MI (Myocardial infarction) Family Study group, over several populations. The odds ratio for the (common) risk allele, rs599839(A), is 1.29 (CI: 1.18-1.40, adjusted p=0.0006).[PMID 17634449OA-icon.png]

[PMID 18262040OA-icon.png] rs599839 and rs4970834 explain about 1% of the variation in circulating LDL-cholesterol levels. "When we look at this particular genetic variance, of all the cholesterol variation among the population, 1% of it can be attributed to this particular locus," said Sandhu. "This is equivalent to more established genes for LDL regulation, particularly APOE."

Another study also reports an association between rs599839(A) and higher LDL levels, in over 4,000 Caucasian Europeans. In one study, the (A) allele is associated with a 6% increase in nonfasting serum LDL, and in another, with a 25% increase in fasting serum LDL.[PMID 18179892OA-icon.png]

rs599839 is also considered one of the statistically stronger associations with abdominal aortic aneurysm; each (G) allele is reported as having an odds ratio of 0.8. This appears to correlate with lower LDL and higher HDL and the lower risk for coronary artery disease compared to (A;A) individuals.[PMID 23535823OA-icon.png],[PMID 26460285]
