BACKGROUND Vitamin D (1,25-dihydroxyVitamin D3) has shown experimentally anticarcinogenic effects and is thought to protect against breast cancer. The actions of Vitamin D are mediated via the Vitamin D receptor (VDR), and the polymorphisms at 3'UTR region of this gene are associated with the risk and progression of breast carcinoma. The current study is an(More)
DNA mismatch repair (MMR) plays a role in promoting genetic stability by repairing DNA replication errors, inhibiting recombination between nonidentical DNA sequences, and participating in responses to DNA damage. Although the role of MMR in prostate carcinogenesis remains unclear, MMR deficiency in Carcinoma Prostate (Pca) could prove to be clinically(More)
The genes involved in androgen pathway and metabolism have been reported to contribute considerably to prostate carcinoma (CaP) risk. The present study investigated the association of androgen receptor (AR), prostate-specific antigen (PSA or KLK3), and cytochrome P450 (CYP19) gene polymorphisms in CaP (n=105) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) (n=120)(More)
Polymorphisms in genes encoding detoxification enzymes have been suggested as susceptibility factors for many solid tumors. However, their association with hematological malignancies is controversial. A case-control study was done to determine the association between glutathione S-transferase M1 (GSTM1), GSTT1, GSTP1, EPHX1, and p53 codon 72 polymorphisms(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Prostate cancer (CaP) is the fifth most common cancer among Indian men. Tumour protein p53 (TP53) gene increases the fidelity of DNA replication and homologous recombination by transcriptional transactivation of mismatch repair (MMR) genes. DNA repair thus has a potential role in molecular carcinogenesis of CaP. The aim of the(More)
Two novel triple negative breast cancer cell lines, NIPBC-1 and NIPBC-2 were successfully established from primary tumors of two young breast cancer patients aged 39 and 38 years respectively, diagnosed as infiltrating duct carcinoma of breast. Characterization of these cell lines showed luminal origin with expression of epithelial specific antigen and(More)
