Background: The cell cycle checkpoint kinase 2 (CHEK2) protein participates in the DNA damage response in many cell types. Germline mutations in CHEK2 (1100delC, IVS2+1G>A and I157T) have been impaired serine/threonine kinase activity and associated with a range of cancer types. This hospital-based case-control study aimed to investigate whether CHEK2 1100delC, IVS2+1G>A and I157T mutations play an important role in the development of colorectal cancer (CRC) in Turkish population.
