As a key encoding protein gene of MRN (MRE11-RAD50-NBS1) complex, NBS1 plays a crucial role in maintaining genomic stability and preventing cell apoptosis, inflammation and tumorgenesis. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs2735383 and rs1805794) in NBS1 have been frequently studied in some cancers with discordant results in previous case-control studies. However, the relationship between these two functional polymorphisms and the susceptibility to acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in Chinese population has not been investigated. We performed a case-control study with 428 patients and 600 controls to detect the association between the two polymorphisms of NBS1 and the risk of AML in a Chinese population. The polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method was carried out to determine the genotypes of potential functional SNPs in NBS1 gene. The results showed that compared with the homozygous carriers rs1805794CC, rs1805794GC genotype was significantly associated with decreased risk of AML in total subjects (adjusted odds ratio (OR) = 0.50; 95 % CI = 0.37-0.67), the risk decreased even further in those carrying rs1805794GG genotype (OR = 0.23; 95 % CI = 0.16-0.34). No significant association was found between rs2735383C>G polymorphism and the risk of AML (OR = 0.93; 95 % CI = 0.71-1.22 for GC; OR = 0.78; 95 % CI = 0.53-1.13 for CC, P = 0.152). These findings indicated that rs1805794G/C polymorphism in NBS1 may play a protective role in mediating the risk of AML.
