26683305 Findings support a role for NAT2 in modifying the association between red meat consumption and colorectal cancer in Japanese and African Americans.
26681215 the NAT2 slow acetylation genotypes might increase the susceptibility to pancreatic cancer in Europe but that these have no significant effects in the United States and multi-center populations.
26681036 NAT2 slow acetylation state was associated with bladder cancer risk, and was shown to modestly increase the risk of bladder cancer.
26656326 TT genotype in NAT2 C282T polymorphism may be a risk factor for lung cancer susceptibility. Additionally, the acetylator status of 5 SNPs in NAT2 gene may not be associated with lung cancer risk (Meta-Analysis)
26641831 Findings suggest that variations in the NAT2 gene and their interactions contribute to occupational diisocyanate asthma susceptibility.
26620671 The pattern of variation of NAT2 in sub-Saharan African food-producing populations differs from that expected under a model of isolation-by-distance or from those observed with other genetic systems, but it is compatible with the hypothesis that it was shaped by selective pressures linked to the chemical environment in which populations evolved.
26616266 Individuals with NAT2 slow acetylators may have increased risk of antituberculosis drug-induced liver injury when standard dose of isoniazid was used. [META-ANALYSIS]
26615528 The results suggest that NAT2 is related to cognitive processes dealing with distraction and attentional control in the auditory modality; ultra-slow acetylation status was associated with reduced higher cognitive functions
26409796 The rs1799931(G>A) genotype was detected in the control population but not in the T2DM population. The wild type (G) allele frequency was higher in T2DM than controls. The mutant allele (A) in rs1799931(G>A) had a protective effect for T2DM.
26204535 Transmission disequilibrium showed a positive association between allele *5 and non-syndromic Cleft lip with or without cleft palate (odds ratio = 1,6; p = 0,03).
