Background. Abnormalities of cell numbers and apoptosis have been observed in renal failure. As uncontrolled expression of c-myc is known to induce apoptosis, we thought that polymorphism in the other myc gene, L-myc gene, which is structually similar to c-myc and reported to be expressed in the kidney, may have a role in the induction of apoptosis and thus have role in chronic renal failure. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the distribution of L-myc genotypes and renal failure.
