dc.description.abstract Background: Gliomas are the most common brain neoplasms in adults, accounting for about 70% of primary neoplasms of the central nervous system (CNS). Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) is a tumor suppressor gene and one of the key players of the Wnt signaling pathway. The Wnt pathway has repeatedly been implicated in brain tumor genesis. Objective: To investigate APC exon 15 polymorphism in gliomas. Materials and methods: DNA was extracted from 61 tumors followed by PCR to amplify fragments of APCs exon 15. Samples showing amplified products were further sequenced. Results: Two polymorphisms {rs41115; G>A at position cDNA. 4859 G>A (5:112175770) leading to codon change of T1493T, and rs456899; G>A at position cDNA. 6260 G>A (5:1121777171)} were detected at the mutation cluster region in 10% of the cases. Conclusion: Adenomatous polyposis coli gene 's exon 15 polymorphism has significant association with carcinogenesis of glioma neoplasms (particularly astrocytomas). en_US
