Association between single nucleotide polymorphisms in ERCC4 and risk of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
(PloS one, 2012-01)
Excision repair cross-complementation group 4 gene (ERCC4/XPF) plays an important role in nucleotide excision repair and participates in removal of DNA interstrand cross-links and DNA double-strand breaks. Single nucleotide ...
Polymorphisms of homologous recombination genes and clinical outcomes of non-small cell lung cancer patients treated with definitive radiotherapy.
(PloS one, 2011-01)
The repair of DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) is the major mechanism to maintain genomic stability in response to irradiation. We hypothesized that genetic polymorphisms in DSB repair genes may affect clinical outcomes among ...
Polymorphisms in the SULF1 gene are associated with early age of onset and survival of ovarian cancer.
(Journal of experimental & clinical cancer research : CR, 2011-01-07)
SULF1 (sulfatase 1) selectively removes the 6-O-sulphate group from heparan sulfate, changing the binding sites for extracellular growth factors. SULF1 expression has been reported to be decreased in various cancers, including ...
