Association of Polymorphism of Lys589glu Exo1 Gene with the Risk of Colorectal Cancer in the Polish Population

Title variants
Languages of publication
The incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) is increasing from year to year. Despite intensive research CRC etiology remains unknown. Studies suggest that at the basis of the process of carcinogenesis can lie reduced efficiency of DNA repair mechanisms, often caused by polymorphisms in DNA repair genes. The aim of the study was to determine the relationship between gene polymorphism Lys589Glu of EXO1 gene and modulation of the risk of colorectal cancer in the Polish population. Determination of the molecular basis of carcinogenesis process and predicting increased risk will allow qualifying patients to increased risk group and including them in preventive program. Material and methods. The material used in study was blood collected from 130 patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer. The control group consisted of 135 healthy people. Genotyping was performed by TaqMan method. Results. The results obtained indicate that the genotype Lys/Glu is associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer (OR 1.811, 95% Cl 1.031-3.181, p = 0.038). Conclusion. On the basis of these results, we conclude that Exo1 gene polymorphism Lys589Glu may be associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer.
