Genetic variation leading to differences in expression and regulation of metallothionein proteins may contribute to observed differences among individuals in terms of cadmium (Cd) uptake and metabolism. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of the A and G alleles at rs28366003, which lies in the 5' promoter region of MT2A, in White and Black females in the Midwestern United States. One-milliliter saliva samples were collected from 298 White or Black adult female volunteers, and… CONTINUE READING
