Clinicopathological significance of MMP-2 and TIMP-2 genotypes in gastric cancer.


AIMS Single nucleotide polymorphisms in matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) -1306 C/T and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) -418 G/C abolish the Sp-1 binding site and down-regulate expression of these genes. We aim to elucidate the role of MMP-2 and TIMP-2 in clinicopathological manifestations of gastric cancer. METHODS We enrolled 240… (More)
