rs76763715, also known as N370S or Asn370Ser, is a SNP in the GBA gene associated with Gaucher disease.
As reported by 23andMe, who use the term i4000415 for this SNP, the N370S mutation is associated only with type 1 Gaucher disease, which usually lacks neurological symptoms. People with either one or two copies of this mutation may have such mild symptoms that their physician never even detects them.
Gaucher's disease Type I (N370S homozygote), the most common, also called the "non-neuropathic" type, occurs mainly in Ashkenazi Jews, at 100 times the occurrence in the general populace. The median age at diagnosis is 28 years of age, and life expectancy is mildly decreased. There are no neurological symptoms.
