The Ala allele at Val762Ala polymorphism in poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) gene is associated with a decreased risk of asthma in a Turkish population.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE It has been suggested that inhibition of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1), either pharmacologically or by a gene knockout provides significant protection against systemic or tissue inflammation in animal models. The aim of this study was to analyze the association of the PARP-1 Val762Ala polymorphism, which has beenreported… (More)
