We investigated the importance of two adjacent functional polymorphisms in the Murine Double Minute 2 (MDM2) gene, SNP285 G > C and SNP309 T > G, for the development of cervical lesions in a Southeastern Brazilian population (293 cases and 184 controls). MDM2 genotyping was performed by PCR-RFLP (Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Length(More)
Variants of p16(INK4a) and p14(ARF), encoded by the CDKN2A locus, may respond differently to the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV). We investigated the potential association of two CDKN2A polymorphisms, 500C > G (rs11515) and 540C > T (rs3088440), with cervical neoplasia in patients with cervical lesions and healthy controls (n = 492).

The CDKN1A gene product is a p53 downstream effector, which participates in cell differentiation, development process, repair, apoptosis, senescence, migration, and tumorigenesis. The objective of our study was investigated the importance of two polymorphisms in the CDKN1A gene, rs1801270 (31C>A) and rs1059234 (70C>T), for the development of cervical(More)
