Polymorphism in MHC class II transactivator gene is not associated with susceptibility to colorectal cancer in Swedish patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Reduced expression of major histocompatibility complex class II (MHC-II) genes in colorectal cancer (CRC) has been reported. MHC-II transactivator (CIITA), encoded by the MHC2TA gene, is considered to be the master regulator for MHC-II gene expression. A functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) -168A-->G in the promoter region of the… (More)
