Özet

Two common MTHFR gene polymorphisms (C677T and A1298C) have been implicated in the etiology of nonsyndromic cleft lip/palate (nsCL/P). To investigate the genotype association among nsCL/P in the Turkish population, 56 case-parent trios were recruited into the study. Genotype frequencies were compared to two groups of controls from the same population. A total of 46 case-parent trios were included in transmission disequilibrium test (TDT) analysis.
