rs2981578 is a SNP within intron 2 of the FGFR2 gene, as part of a haplotype associated with increased risk for sporadic postmenopausal ER+ breast cancer in Caucasian patients. The risk shown for this SNP is actually the risk calculated for the tightly associated SNP rs1219648.[PMID 17529973]
The distinguishing feature of rs2981578 is experimental evidence indicating that it is one of two SNPs in this intron that appear to have a (the?) functional role associated with the transcriptional regulation of the FGFR2 gene. The minor alleles of both SNPs, rs2981578 and rs7895676, lead to increased transcription and increased breast cancer risk.10.1371/journal.pbio.0060108
