Accumulated evidence suggests that alterations due to mutations or genetic polymorphisms in the AXIN2 tumor suppressor gene, a component of the Wnt signaling pathway, contributes to carcinogenesis. The effect of the AXIN2 exon 1 148 C↷T polymorphism was recently investigated in a Japanese population, but has not been investigated in other populations.(More)
Polymorphism of AXIN2, a component of Wnt signaling, has been shown to play a role in tumorigenesis and dysregulated in cancer cells. In order to find out if AXIN2 polymorphism is a risk factor for prostate cancer, we analyzed eight polymorphic regions of this gene in 84 patients with prostate cancer and compared the results with 100 healthy controls in a(More)
The product of AXIN2, a component of Wnt signalling, plays a role in tumorigenesis and is dysregulated in cancer cells. In order to determine whether the AXIN2 polymorphism is a risk factor for astrocytoma, we analysed eight polymorphic regions of this gene in 100 astrocytoma patients compared to 100 healthy controls in a Turkish population using PCR-RFLP(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to assess the association between human fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 (FGFR4) Gly(388) Arg polymorphism and pre-eclampsia (PE) by carrying out a case-control study in Turkish women. MATERIALS AND METHODS In the present study 159 PE patients and 161 controls were included. DNA was extracted from peripheral blood(More)
