Summary This locus encodes a member of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor family of proteins. Members of this family of proteins form pentameric complexes comprised of both alpha and beta subunits. This locus encodes an alpha-type subunit, as it contains characteristic adjacent cysteine residues. The encoded protein is a ligand-gated ion channel that likely plays a role in neurotransmission. Polymorphisms in this gene have been associated with an increased risk of smoking initiation and an increased susceptibility to lung cancer. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

Calculate Correlations

Chr:     Mb:  to 
The Sample Correlation is computed between trait data and any other traits in the sample database selected above. Use Spearman Rank when the sample size is small (<20) or when there are influential outliers.

Mapping Tools

Select covariate(s) from a collection
No collections available. Please add traits to a collection to use them as covariates.
Maps traits with correction for kinship among samples using a linear mixed model method, and also allows users to fit multiple covariates such as sex, age, treatment, and genetic markers (PMID: 2453419, and GitHub code). GEMMA incorporates the Leave One Chromosome Out (LOCO) method to ensure that the correction for kinship does not remove useful genetic variance near each marker. Markers can be filtered to include only those with minor allele frequencies (MAF) above a threshold. The default MAF is 0.05.
