Effect of ZNF217 gene polymorphisms on colorectal cancer development in a Mexican population
“Effect of ZNF217 gene polymorphisms on colorectal cancer development in a Mexican population”, vol. 14, pp. 362-367, 2015.,
The ZNF217 gene, a potential oncogene amplified and overexpressed in several cancers including colorectal cancer (CRC), acts as a transcription factor that activates or represses target genes. The polymorphisms rs16998248 (T>A) and rs35720349 (C>T) in coronary artery disease have been associated with reduced expression of ZNF217. In this study, we analyzed the 2 polymorphisms in Mexican patients with CRC.
