  1. The base numbers correspond to the following GenBank accession numbers: ZFP36 gene, M92844; tristetraprolin cDNA, NM_003407.1; tristetraprolin protein, NP_003398.1. Polymorphism numbering is consistent with that in [52]. Base refers to the base number in the genomic sequence M92844. The polymorphic changes are indicated as follows: A (original base or amino acid) → G (polymorphic base or amino acid), or (A/G) in the sequence column. EGP, Environmental Genome Project; ex. 2, exon 2; PCD, protein coding domain; 3'-UTR, 3'-untranslated region. Table modified from [52]. aThis SNP was also found in 2.4% of subjects from Durham, North Carolina (see the text). The change labeled 'Del TT' refers to the removal of two T residues, changing the normal seven consecutive T residues to five in the variant sequence.
