Özet

Aims: Folate metabolism plays a critical role in DNA methylation and synthesis. Polymorphisms in folate metabolism may affect enzyme activities and thereby affect the cancer risk. Methionine synthase (MTR) and methionine synthase reductase (MTRR) are critical enzymes for the folate cycle. In this study, possible associations between genetic variabilities in MTR and MTRR and susceptibility to lung cancer (LC) were investigated in a Turkish population.
