XRCC3 (X-ray repair complementing defective repair in Chinese hamster cells 3) is a member of the RecA/Rad51-related protein family that participates in homologous recombination, maintaining chromosome stability and participating in DNA repair. Attention has been drawn upon the association of XRCC3 Thr241Met polymorphism with breast cancer risk. The present meta-analysis aims to examine whether XRCC3 Thr241Met polymorphism status is associated with breast cancer risk. Apart from the overall… CONTINUE READING
