Genetic polymorphisms in XRCC1, APE1, ADPRT, XRCC2, and XRCC3 and risk of chronic benzene poisoning in a Chinese occupational population.


DNA damage induced by benzene is an important mechanism of its genotoxicity that leads to chronic benzene poisoning (CBP). Therefore, genetic variation in DNA repair genes may contribute to susceptibility to CBP in the exposed population. Because benzene-induced DNA damage includes single- and double-strand breaks, we hypothesized that single-nucleotide… (More)
