The CYP19 gene codes for the aromatase enzyme that is involved in the synthesis of oestrogens. This case-control study examines the relationship between a tetranucleotide repeat sequence in the CYP19 gene and the development of male breast cancer. No significant differences were found between male breast cancer cases and controls. (C) 2000 Cancer Research Campaign.
