  • increasing the risk of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
  • SNP in the promoter increasing the risk of high CRP level and cardiovascular disease
  • individuals homozygous for rs181704186-G have a mean CRP level of 0.23 mg/L, in contrast to individuals heterozygous for rs181704186 with mean CRP of 2.97 mg/L and major allele homozygotes with mean CRP of 4.11 mg/L
