Synergistic effects of STK15 gene polymorphisms and endogenous estrogen exposure in the risk of breast cancer.


STK15 is a member of a family of serine/threonine kinases that act as key regulators of chromosome segregation and cytokinesis. Over expression of the STK15 gene leads to centrosome amplification, chromosomal instability, aneuploidy, and transformation. It has been reported that the 91T --> A (Phe --> Ile at codon 31) polymorphism in the STK15 gene affects… (More)
