Evren Bahri , Karadag Nese , Yilmaz Sami , Sertkaya Ayse Cikim

Aims: Bening and malignant thyroid nodules are the most common lesions of endocrine glands. Some molecular markers; Mut-S homolog-2 (MSH2) and Mut-L-homolog-1 (MLH1) are the two of DNA repair proteins and metil guanin–DNA-metil transferase (MGMT) is the DNA repair enzymes have been studied. In this study, our aim is to evaluate MSH2, MLH1, and MGMT levels in papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), multinodular colloidal goitre (MNG), and chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (CLT) and ...
