Genetic variation in ERCC1 and XPF genes and breast cancer risk

X. H. Pei, Yang, Z., Lv, X. Q., and Li, H. X., Genetic variation in ERCC1 and XPF genes and breast cancer risk, vol. 13, pp. 2259-2267, 2014.

Breast cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women worldwide, and we conducted a case-control study by genotyping seven potentially functional SNPs, three in ERCC1 and four in XPF, in a Chinese population of 417 breast cancer cases and 417 cancer-free controls. Three SNPs in ERCC1 and four SNPs in XPF were genotyped by using the Taqman Universal PCR Master Mix in the GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 with Dual 384-Well Sample Block Module, and assays were performed on a 384-well plate on the Sequenom MassARRAY platform.
