The role of genetics in the etiopathogenesis of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is unclear. In this study, we investigated the relationship between AIS and polymorphisms in MATN-1, LCT C/T-13910, and VDR BsmI genes. 53 Turkish adolescents with diagnosed AIS and 54 healthy adult individuals were included in the study. MATN-1, LCT C/T-13910, and VDR BsmI gene mutations were analyzed with real-time PCR. We did not detect a statistically significant difference between AIS and control groups in respect to those three different gene polymorphisms (p?
