Note: For some SNPs, testing providers detect the genotype from the opposite strand of DNA, so that the genotypes listed on openSNP don't appear here. In those cases, please replace "A" by "T" or "G" by "C" (and vice-versa).

||Moderate clinical importance, protective
||This recessive protective variant confers resistance to norovirus (which causes stomach flu). 20% of Caucasians and Africans are homozygous for this variant and are "non-secretors": they do not express ABO blood type antigens in their saliva or mucosal surfaces. Most strains of norovirus bind to these antigens in the gut, and so this non-secretor status confers almost total resistantance to most types of norovirus. There are notable exceptions, some strains of norovirus bind a different target and are equally infectious for secretors and non-secretors.
