O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase gene coding region polymorphisms and oral cancer risk.

Abstract

BACKGROUND O (6) -methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) is a specific DNA direct reversal repair protein which ameliorates mutagenic, carcinogenic and cytotoxic adducts from O(6) -methylguanine in DNA. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential association between six polymorphisms in the coding region of the MGMT gene and oral cancer risk… (More)
