Polymorphism at codon 72 of the p53 gene is not associated with endometriosis in a Japanese population.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: Endometriosis is inherited as a complex trait, which means that multiple susceptibility genes interact with each other and the environment to produce the phenotype. Previous studies have implicated p53, a tumor suppressor gene, as a factor in the development of the disease.
