Association between the 1793G>A MTHFR polymorphism and sporadic colorectal cancer in Iran
Background: It has been proposed that folate and polymorphisms of the enzyme methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR), which regulates influx of folate for methylation reactions for DNA synthesis and repair, are involved ...
Impact of EXO1 polymorphism in susceptibility to colorectal cancer
Background and Aim: One candidate gene for colorectal cancer (CRC) susceptibility is exonuclease 1 (EXO1). It is a member of RAD2 nuclease family, which plays a major role in mismatch repair, DNA replication, and recombination. ...
Telomere shortening: A biological marker of sporadic colorectal cancer with normal expression of p53 and mismatch repair proteins
Uncontrolled growth of cells, a main criterion of cancer, is merged with pathologic telomere length alteration. Thereby, measurement of telomere length could provide important information on cell proliferation and senescence ...
Association between MTHFR polymorphism (C677T) with nonfamilial colorectal cancer
The enzyme 5,10-methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) is linked to DNA methylation, synthesis, and repair. C677T is one of the most important polymorphisms in the MTHFR gene. The single nucleotide polymorphism C677T ...
Novel missense mutation at codon 2774 (C.8321 G>A) p.S2774n of APC gene in a denovo case of familial adenomatous polyposis
Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an autosomal dominant inherited disease caused by germline mutation in Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) gene. FAP accounts less than 1% of all colorectal cancers incidence. Patients ...
