Linkage disequilibrium region

Linkage disequilibrium threshold:
 - In all HapMap 2 populations: r2≥0.8 r2≥0.9 r2=1.0 
 - In the HapMap 2 CEU population r2≥0.8 r2≥0.9 r2=1.0 

SNPs in the linkage disequilibrium region sorted by decreasing amount of evidence supporting a functional role for the SNP:

Position: chr4:126,431,057 (Open in UCSC Genome Browser)
Distance to lead SNP: 862 bp
Distance to nearest TSS: 242,892 bp
GENCODE v7 location: Intergenic region
RegulomeDB Score: 6 - Motif (Open in RegulomeDB)
Linkage disequilibrium with Lead SNP (HapMap 2): CEU: D'=1.0, r2=1.0 / CHB: D'=1.0, r2=1.0 / JPT: D'=1.0, r2=1.0 / YRI: D'=1.0, r2=1.0
