  Background & Aim : One of the important DNA repair systems is Mismatch Repair (MMR). Mutation in this system can cause different types of cancer. Exonuclease1 (Exo1) is the only exonuclease involved in the human MMR system. Since Exo1 plays a distinctive role in the MMR system, this gene has gained a great intrest as a potential risk factor in Colorectal Cancer (CRC). Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) involve in increasing or decreasing the risk of CRC. In this study, to find a potential biomarker of CRC, we investigated the association between SNP of Exo1 gene, rs1635498, and risk of colorectal cancer in patients who had referred to Taleghani hospital.

  Materials & Methods: This case-control study was performed on 111 cases and 121 healthy controls who had been registered in Taleghani hospital of Tehran. Genotyping analysis was performed by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) and use HPYCHVI restriction enzyme.

  Result : According to our finding, while TT genotype was selected as a refrence, the frequency percent of TT, CT and CC genotypes in the patients were %90.1, %9.0, %0.9 and in the control group were %92.6, %7.4 and %0.0. We observed no significant difference. The frequency percent of T allele in the patients was %94.6 and in the controls were %96.3. Also the frequency percent of C allele were calculated in the patients and controls group respectively %5.4 and %3.7.

  Conclusions : The findings indicated that rs1635498 polymorphism in Exo1 gene isn't associated with susceptibility to CRC. So, we conclude that this polymorphism doesn’t have significant role in incresing or decreasing risk of CRC.
