Overview

In genetics, rs7341475 is a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the RELN gene that codes the reelin protein. The gene RELN is mapped to human chromosome 7 (7q22.1). The SNP rs7341475 is located in the fourth intron of RELN. The gene RELN has many more SNPs among its 65 exons and 64 introns, — even in intron 4 there are tens of SNPs.[1]

The SNP is currently under investigation for a possible link to schizophrenia. A 2008 genome-wide association study pointed to that a variant of the SNP could elevate the risk for schizophrenia among women.[2]
