We analyzed association of potentially regulatory polymorphisms (rs590352, rs11542583, rs3829202, rs207258, and rs4796672) with breast cancer. A significant association was found between this disease and rs2072580T>A (p=0.001) located in the overlapping promoter regions of the SART3 and ISCU genes. In women with AA and AT genotypes, the risk of breast cancer is higher by 6.7 times (p=0.001) and 12 times (p=0.001), respectively, in comparison with TT genotype. Under a codominant model of inheritance (AT vs AA+TT), the risk of breast cancer was increased by 4.2 times (р=0.001) for the AT genotype. Under a recessive model of inheritance (TT vs AA+TT), the risk of disease was 10-fold higher (р=0.001) for the TT genotype. It has been demonstrated that the T>A substitution affects the binding properties of transcription factors CREB1 and REST.
