Role of maternal exposures and newborn genotypes on newborn chromosome aberration frequencies.

Abstract

Maternal exposures may induce chromosome damage and birth defects in the fetus. Polymorphic variation in genes coding for enzymes involved in metabolic activation and detoxification of environmental procarcinogens may account for some of the differences in chromosome aberration frequencies in newborns. In this study, 40 mothers completed questionnaires… (More)
