Allelic variants of folate cycle enzyme genes can contribute to predisposition to cancer. The impact of polymorphic loci A2756G of MTR gene and of C1420T of SHMT1 gene for the risk of prostatic cancer was studied in residents of West Siberia. The frequency of alleles of these loci in patients (N = 371) and controls (N = 285) was determined and the data were statistically processed. No statistically significant association with prostatic cancer was detected for any of the studied loci.
