Paulson says, "Because the human genome is full of polymorphisms, including countless single-nucleotide polymorphisms, it is conceivable that some of these might be associated with diseases, or traits, that allow them to be the 'hook' by which selective targeting [of a gene] can occur.
Researchers have identified five single-nucleotide polymorphisms that affect PON1 production, three in the promoter region of the PON1 gene (-909, -162, -108) and two in the coding region (L55M, Q192R).
