  1. New DNA polymorphisms of human MMH/OGG1 gene : Prevalence of one polymorphism among lung-adenocarcinoma patients in Japanese.

    Article - En anglais

    MMH/OGGI is an 8-hydroxyguanine-specific DNA glycosylaselAP-lyase, one of the mutator enzymes for the excision repair of 8-hydroxyguanine.

    DNA polymorphisms in human MMH/OGGI gene were newly identified and analyzed to examine a possible association with lung-cancer risk by a population-based study.

    Polymorphic allele 3 in hMMH/OGG1 exon I was significantly prevalent among Japanese patients with adenocarcinoma of the lung [odds ratio (OR) : 3.152,95% confidence interval (Cl) : 1.266-7.845], indicating that the excision repair of 8-hydroxyguanine may play a role in predisposition to lung cancer.
