Genetic variants in miRNAs have attracted more and more attention these years because they are capable of altering miRNA function and/or expression, consequently affecting downstream biological pathways and disease risk. The rs767649 polymorphism, locating in the promoter of miR-155, was recently reported to be able to alter transcriptional activity of miR-155 and relate to lung cancer risk. In this study, we aimed to assess the relationship between rs767649 and cervical cancer (CC) risk. We… CONTINUE READING
