Tumor growth, which employs a number of regulators, requires the formation of new blood vessels. The most important regulators are vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and angiopoietin-2 (ANGPT-2). DNA sequence variations in VEGF and ANGPT-2 genes may lead to altered productions and/or activities of these genes. In this study, we aimed to determine the polymorphic effects of the changes in the VEGF -460 C/T, VEGF 936 C/T, and ANGPT-2 exon 4 G/A, which we perceive as risk factors in the… CONTINUE READING
