BACKGROUND The DNA repair gene XRCC4, a member of NHEJ for double strand breaks, is very important in maintaining the overall genome stability, and may play an important role in carcinogenesis. To reveal the relationship between XRCC4 and bladder cancer, seven polymorphic variants of XRCC4, including C-1622T (rs7727691), G-1394T (rs6869366), G-652T… CONTINUE READING
