Why is the βS SNP unusual compared to most SNPs?

0 votes

 

The βS SNP is unusual in that it occurs in an intronic region of the gene, whereas most SNPs occur in exon (coding) regions of the genome.

The βS SNP is unusual in that it leads to a mutation in only one amino acid, whereas most SNPs cause mutations in many amino acids within a protein.

The βS SNP is unusual in that it is noncoding, so it causes a change in the DNA sequence but not in the protein.

The βS SNP is unusual in that it occurs in the coding sequence of the gene, whereas most SNPs occur in noncoding segments of the genome.
