Resumo Cytosolic sulfotransferases are enzymes that catalyze the conjugation of sulfate groups to a variety of xenobiotic and endogenous substrates. A mutation in the SULT1A1 gene has been associated with decreased sulfotransferase activity. We studied 125 cancer patients and 100 healthy controls from Brazil matched by age and gender. the objective of this study was to assess the impact of the SULT1A1 polymorphism on sulfotransferase activity in a population of cancer patients. Both heterozygous and homozygous individuals for the mutant allele had significantly decreased sulfotransferase enzymatic activity. This decrease was more significant in cancer patients. the frequency of the SULT1A1*2 allele was increased in the myeloma group (odds ratio = 0.53). These data suggest a functional role for the SULT1A1 gene polymorphism in cancer. (c) 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
