  1. Significant results from univariate association analysis with alcohol consumption. Shown are the eight SNPs that showed a significant (FDR<0.05) association with alcohol consumption (g/kg/day) in a genotype model.
  2. aMinor and major allele designation is according to Ensembl release 50.
  3. bThis SNP was significant when both genders are combined; in male subjects, the FDR for this SNP was 0.09. All other SNPs shown were significant when males only were tested.
  4. cThe localization of this SNP is ambiguous. Its presence in MAPK1 and the overlapping gene, TUBA8 (tubulin alpha 8) is of particular interest, given the findings of differences in expression of cytoskeletal genes in the HXB/BXH rat strains.
