  • Factoid: Freckling

    "Freckles are present in populations from around the world. However, having freckles is genetic. The dominant melanocortin-1 receptor MC1R gene variant causes freckles.

    The results column shows the two SNPs analyzed in this study. Each one has three possible alleles."

    rs1015362
    CC More likely to have freckles
    TT Less likely to have freckles
    CT More likely to have freckles

    rs4911414
    GG Less likely to have freckles
    GT More likely to have freckles
    TT More likely to have freckles

    This result is of interest to me as I am currently researching Melanogenesis.
    At this moment it doesn't really help, but I will take a wild guess at.... the more time I spend in the sun the more freckles I will get
Working...
