Biologically Significant Variant Comments
GWAS identified RGS6 as one of four novel genes associated with the dominant inheritance of alcohol dependent symptom counts (ADSC), thus providing a link between RGS6 and alcohol disorders in humans [9]. GWAS and eQTL analyses identified 17 SNPs that were significantly associated with low heart rate variability and cardiac morbidity. One of these SNPs (rs4899412), located in RGS6, is believed to increase RGS6 expression resulting in decrease GIRK-channel signaling and a subsequent reduction in heart rate variability [27].
