A genetic variant in the APE1/Ref-1 gene promoter -141T/G may modulate risk of glioblastoma in a Chinese Han population.
(BMC cancer, 2011-01)
BACKGROUND: The human apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1/Redox effector factor-1 (APE1/Ref-1) is implicated in tumor development and progression. Recently, the APE1/Ref-1 promoter -141T/G variant (rs1760944) has been reported ...
Genetic variants in RORA and DNMT1 associated with cutaneous melanoma survival.
(International journal of cancer, 2018-06)
Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is considered as a steroid hormone-related malignancy. However, few studies have evaluated the roles of genetic variants encoding steroid hormone receptor genes and their related regulators (SHR-related ...
Three novel genetic variants in NRF2 signaling pathway genes are associated with pancreatic cancer risk.
(Cancer science, 2019-06)
Pancreatic cancer (PanC) is one of the most lethal solid malignancies, and metastatic PanC is often present at the time of diagnosis. Although several high- and low-penetrance genes have been implicated in PanC, their roles ...
Potentially Functional Variants of ATG16L2 Predict Radiation Pneumonitis and Outcomes in Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer after Definitive Radiotherapy.
(Journal of thoracic oncology : official publication of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, 2018-05)
INTRODUCTION:Autophagy not only plays an important role in the progression of cancer but is also involved in tissue inflammatory response. However, few published studies have investigated associations between functional ...
Sequence variations in DNA repair gene XPC is associated with lung cancer risk in a Chinese population: a case-control study.
(BMC cancer, 2007-01)
BACKGROUND: The nucleotide excision repair (NER) protein, xeroderma pigmentosum C (XPC), participates in recognizing DNA lesions and initiating DNA repair in response to DNA damage. Because mutations in XPC cause a high ...
ERCC1 and ERCC2 variants predict survival in gastric cancer patients.
(PloS one, 2013-01)
PURPOSE: ERCC1 and ERCC2 play critical roles in the nucleotide excision repair pathway that effectively repairs DNA damage induced by chemotherapeutic agents. Therefore, functional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) ...
