ANRIL Genetic Variants in Iranian Breast Cancer Patients
The genetic variants of the long non-coding RNA
Materials and Methods
In this case-control study, we genotyped rs1333045, rs4977574, rs1333048 and rs10757278 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 122 breast can- cer patients as well as in 200 normal age-matched subjects by tetra-primer amplification refractory mutation system polymerase chain reaction (T-ARMS-PCR).
The TT genotype at rs1333045 was significantly over-represented among pa- tients (P=0.038) but did not remain significant after multiple-testing correction. In addi- tion, among all observed haplotypes (with SNP order of rs1333045, rs1333048 rs4977574 and rs10757278), four haplotypes were shown to be associated with breast cancer risk. However, after multiple testing corrections, TCGA was the only haplotype which remained significant.
These results suggest that breast cancer risk is significantly associated with
