  • Fisher’s exact probability test was used for the statistical analysis. Allele frequencies represent minor alleles different from the reference sequence (GenBank accession no. NT_024788). The nucleotide number of each SNP is counted from A of the start codon as 1, with the caution that the one base shorter numbers than those from the human draft sequence for the FOXC2 gene are used beyond +1060 as correct reference numbers.
