Human DNA repair mechanisms protect the genome from DNA damage caused by endogenous and environmental agents. Polymorphisms in DNA repair genes and differences in repair capacity between individuals have been widely reported in different cancers. In this study we aimed to evaluate the associations between XPC Lys939Gln (rs2228001), XPD Lys751Gln (rs13181) and XPG Asp1104His (rs17655) polymorphisms and leukemia risk in a Tunisian population. Genotypes were determined by polymerase chain reaction… CONTINUE READING
