11q23.1 and 11q25-qter YACs suppress tumour growth in vivo. (1/4864)

Frequent allelic deletion at chromosome 11q22-q23.1 has been described in breast cancer and a number of other malignancies, suggesting putative tumour suppressor gene(s) within the approximately 8 Mb deleted region. In addition, we recently described another locus, at the 11q25-qter region, frequently deleted in breast cancer, suggesting additional tumour suppressor gene(s) in this approximately 2 Mb deleted region. An 11q YAC contig was accessed and three YACs, one containing the candidate gene ATM at 11q23.1, and two contiguous YACs (overlapping for approximately 400-600 kb) overlying most of the 11q25 deleted region, were retrofitted with a G418 resistance marker and transfected into murine A9 fibrosarcoma cells. Selected A9 transfectant clones (and control untransfected and 'irrelevant' alphoid YAC transfectant A9 clones) were assayed for in vivo tumorigenicity in athymic female Balb c-nu/nu mice. All the 11q YAC transfectant clones demonstrated significant tumour suppression compared to the control untransfected and 'irrelevant' YAC transfected A9 cells. These results define two discrete tumour suppressor loci on chromosome 11q by functional complementation, one to a approximately 1.2 Mb region on 11q23.1 (containing the ATM locus) and another to a approximately 400-600 kb subterminal region on 11q25-qter.  (+info)

Superimposed histologic and genetic mapping of chromosome 9 in progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia: implications for a genetic model of multistep urothelial carcinogenesis and early detection of urinary bladder cancer. (2/4864)

The evolution of alterations on chromosome 9, including the putative tumor suppressor genes mapped to the 9p21-22 region (the MTS genes), was studied in relation to the progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia by using whole organ superimposed histologic and genetic mapping in cystectomy specimens and was verified in urinary bladder tumors of various pathogenetic subsets with longterm follow-up. The applicability of chromosome 9 allelic losses as non-invasive markers of urothelial neoplasia was tested on voided urine and/or bladder washings of patients with urinary bladder cancer. Although sequential multiple hits in the MTS locus were documented in the development of intraurothelial precursor lesions, the MTS genes do not seem to represent a major target for p21-23 deletions in bladder cancer. Two additional tumor suppressor genes involved in bladder neoplasia located distally and proximally to the MTS locus within p22-23 and p11-13 regions respectively were identified. Several distinct putative tumor suppressor gene loci within the q12-13, q21-22, and q34 regions were identified on the q arm. In particular, the pericentromeric q12-13 area may contain the critical tumor suppressor gene or genes for the development of early urothelial neoplasia. Allelic losses of chromosome 9 were associated with expansion of the abnormal urothelial clone which frequently involved large areas of urinary bladder mucosa. These losses could be found in a high proportion of urothelial tumors and in voided urine or bladder washing samples of nearly all patients with urinary bladder carcinoma.  (+info)

Phenotypic analysis of human glioma cells expressing the MMAC1 tumor suppressor phosphatase. (3/4864)

MMAC1, also known as PTEN or TEP-1, was recently identified as a gene commonly mutated in a variety of human neoplasias. Sequence analysis revealed that MMAC1 harbored sequences similar to those found in several protein phosphatases. Subsequent studies demonstrated that MMAC1 possessed in vitro enzymatic activity similar to that exhibited by dual specificity phosphatases. To characterize the potential cellular functions of MMAC1, we expressed wild-type and several mutant variants of MMAC1 in the human glioma cell line, U373, that lacks endogenous expression. While expression of wild-type MMAC1 in these cells significantly reduced their growth rate and saturation density, expression of enzymatically inactive MMAC1 significantly enhanced growth in soft agar. Our observations indicate that while wild-type MMAC1 exhibits activities compatible with its proposed role as a tumor suppressor, cellular expression of MMAC1 containing mutations in the catalytic domain may yield protein products that enhance transformation characteristics.  (+info)

The alphaE-catenin gene (CTNNA1) acts as an invasion-suppressor gene in human colon cancer cells. (4/4864)

The acquisition of invasiveness is a crucial step in the malignant progression of cancer. In cancers of the colon and of other organs the E-cadherin/catenin complex, which is implicated in homotypic cell-cell adhesion as well as in signal transduction, serves as a powerful inhibitor of invasion. We show here that one allele of the alphaE-catenin (CTNNA1) gene is mutated in the human colon cancer cell family HCT-8, which is identical to HCT-15, DLD-1 and HRT-18. Genetic instability, due to mutations in the HMSH6 (also called GTBP) mismatch repair gene, results in the spontaneous occurrence of invasive variants, all carrying either a mutation or exon skipping in the second alphaE-catenin allele. The alphaE-catenin gene is therefore, an invasion-suppressor gene in accordance with the two-hit model of Knudsen for tumour-suppressor genes.  (+info)

Multiple target sites of allelic imbalance on chromosome 17 in Barrett's oesophageal cancer. (5/4864)

Twelve Barrett's adenocarcinomas have been analysed for the occurrence of allelic imbalance (LOH) on chromosome 17 using 41 microsatellite markers. This study provides evidence for 13 minimal regions of LOH, six on 17p and seven on 17q. Four of these centre in the vicinity of the known tumour suppressor genes (TSGs) TP53 (17p13.1), NFI (17q11.2), BRCA1 (17q21.1), and a putative TSG (17p13.3). The tumours all displayed relatively small regions of LOH (1-10 cM), and in several tumours extensive regions of LOH were detected. One tumour displayed only two very small regions of LOH; 17p11.2 and 17p13.1. The frequency of allelic imbalance has been calculated based on the LOH encompassing only one minimal region, and based on all the LOH observations. By both evaluations the highest LOH frequencies were found for regions II (p53), III (17p13.1 centromeric to p53), IV (17p12), V (17p11.2) and VII (NF1, 17q11.2). Our data supports the existence of multiple TSGs on chromosome 17 and challenges the view that p53 is the sole target of LOH on 17p in Barrett's adenocarcinoma.  (+info)

p73 at chromosome 1p36.3 is lost in advanced stage neuroblastoma but its mutation is infrequent. (6/4864)

p73, a novel p53 family member, is a recently identified candidate neuroblastoma (NBL) suppressor gene mapped at chromosome 1p36.33 and was found to inhibit growth and induce apoptosis in cell lines. To test the hypothesis that p73 is a NBL suppressor gene, we analysed the p73 gene in primary human NBLs. Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) for p73 was observed in 19% (28/151) of informative cases which included 92 mass-screening (MS) tumors. The high frequency of p73 LOH was significantly associated with sporadic NBLs (9% vs 34%, P<0.001), N-myc amplification (10% vs 71%, P<0.001), and advanced stage (14% vs 28%, P<0.05). Both p73alpha and p73beta transcripts were detectable in only 46 of 134 (34%) NBLs at low levels by RT-PCR methods, while they were easily detectable in most breast cancers and colorectal cancers under the same conditions. They found no correlation between p73 LOH and its expression levels (P>0.1). We found two mutations out of 140 NBLs, one somatic and one germline, which result in amino acid substitutions in the C-terminal region of p73 which may affect transactivation functions, though, in the same tumor samples, no mutation of the p53 gene was observed as reported previously. These results suggest that allelic loss of the p73 gene may be a later event in NBL tumorigenesis. However, p73 is infrequently mutated in primary NBLs and may hardly function as a tumor suppressor in a classic Knudson's manner.  (+info)

Analysis of TSG101 tumour susceptibility gene transcripts in cervical and endometrial cancers. (7/4864)

Carcinoma of the uterine cervix is a common malignancy among women that has been found to show loss of heterozygosity in the chromosome 11p. Recent studies have localized the TSG101 gene in this region, and also demonstrated a high frequency of abnormalities of this gene in human breast cancer. To determine the role of the TSG101 gene in the carcinogenesis of cervical and uterine carcinoma, 19 cases of cervical carcinoma and five cases of endometrial carcinoma, as well as nearby non-cancerous tissue from the same patients, and 16 blood samples from healthy persons as normal control were analysed by Southern blot analysis of genomic DNA, reverse transcription of the TSG101 mRNA followed by PCR amplification and sequencing of the products. We found that abnormal transcripts of the TSG101 gene were common both in cancerous or non-cancerous tissues of the uterus and cervix and in normal peripheral mononuclear cells. There was no genomic deletion or rearrangement in spite of the presence of abnormal transcripts, and no definite relationship between the abnormal transcripts and HPV infection was found. Although the frequency of abnormal transcripts was higher in cancerous than in non-cancerous tissue, normal peripheral mononuclear cells also had abnormal transcripts. Given these findings, the role of the TSG101 gene as a tumour-suppressor gene should be re-evaluated. Because some aberrant transcripts could be found at the first PCR reaction, we suggest that the aberrant transcripts might be the result of imperfect minor splicesome products.  (+info)

Loss of heterozygosity (LOH), malignancy grade and clonality in microdissected prostate cancer. (8/4864)

The aim of the present study was to find out whether increasing malignancy of prostate carcinoma correlates with an overall increase of loss of heterozygosity (LOH), and whether LOH typing of microdissected tumour areas can help to distinguish between multifocal or clonal tumour development. In 47 carcinomas analysed at 25 chromosomal loci, the overall LOH rate was found to be significantly lower in grade 1 areas (2.2%) compared with grade 2 (9.4%) and grade 3 areas (8.3%, P = 0.007). A similar tendency was found for the mean fractional allele loss (FAL, 0.043 for grade 1, 0.2 for grade 2 and 0.23 for grade 3, P = 0.0004). Of 20 tumours (65%) with LOH in several microdissected areas, 13 had identical losses at 1-4 loci within two or three areas, suggesting clonal development of these areas. Markers near RB, DCC, BBC1, TP53 and at D13S325 (13q21-22) showed higher loss rates in grades 2 and 3 (between 25% and 44.4%) compared with grade 1 (0-6.6%). Tumour-suppressor genes (TSGs) near these loci might, thus, be important for tumour progression. TP53 mutations were detected in 27%, but BBC1 mutations in only 7%, of samples with LOH. Evaluation of all 25 loci in every tumour made evident that each prostate cancer has its own pattern of allelic losses.  (+info)

Background Genomic deletion at tumor suppressor loci is a common genetic aberration in human cancers. The study aimed to explore candidate tumor suppressor genes at chromosome 4q25-q28.2 and to delineate novel prognostic biomarkers associated with colorectal cancer (CRC). Methods Deletion mapping of chromosome 4q25-q28.2 was conducted in 114 sporadic CRC by loss of heterozygosity study with 11 microsatellite markers. A novel candidate tumor suppressor gene, namely NDST4, was identified at 4q26. Gene expression of NDST4 was investigated in 52 pairs of primary CRC tissues by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Allelic loss of NDST4 gene was further determined in 174 colorectal carcinomas by loss of heterozygosity analysis, and then was assessed for clinical relevance. Results One minimal deletion region was delineated between D4S2297 and D4S2303 loci at 4q26, where NDST4 was the only gene that had markedly been downregulated in CRC tumors. By laser capture microdissection,
About 90 percent of human pancreatic carcinomas show allelic loss at chromosome 18q. To identify candidate tumor suppressor genes on 18q, a panel of pancreatic carcinomas were analyzed for convergent sites of homozygous deletion. Twenty-five of 84 tumors had homozygous deletions at 18q21.1, a site that excludes DCC (a candidate suppressor gene for colorectal cancer) and includes DPC4, a gene similar in sequence to a Drosophila melanogaster gene (Mad) implicated in a transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β)-like signaling pathway. Potentially inactivating mutations in DPC4 were identified in six of 27 pancreatic carcinomas that did not have homozygous deletions at 18q21.1. These results identify DPC4 as a candidate tumor suppressor gene whose inactivation may play a role in pancreatic and possibly other human cancers.. ...

BACKGROUND: In a previous work, we demonstrated that loss of heterozygosity of 18q is a frequent event significantly associated with poor prognosis in pancreatic cancer. We hypothesized that restoration of heterozygosity of chromosome 18 in pancreatic cancer cells would reduce their tumorigenicity. This study was intended to provide functional evidence for the existence of new tumour suppressor gene(s) located on chromosome 18. METHOD: Restoration of heterozygosity was achieved by introducing a normal copy of chromosome 18 into pancreatic ductal carcinoma using a microcell-mediated chromosome transfer technique. The tumorigenicity and metastatic ability of both the parental cells and resulting hybrids were assessed in vitro and in vivo. RESULTS: In vitro growth of hybrid clones was significantly delayed ...
Recently, abnormal tumor suppressor gene (TSG) methylation has become a hotspot in the research on colorectal cancer (CRC). This study aimed to explore the influence of CHD5 methylation of CRC TSG on its clinical and pathological characteristics.
The Inhibitor of Growth 1 (ING1) gene has been identified and characterized as a Type-II tumor suppressor gene (TSG). Subsequently, 4 additional members of the family were identified by homology search. ING proteins contain a nuclear localization sequence (NLS) and a plant homeo domain (PHD) finger motif in their C-terminus. These proteins are involved in numerous signaling pathways especially in 2 tumor suppressor pathways: apoptosis and senescence. In human tumors, several studies have shown that the expression of ING1 is frequently lost or downregulated. It occurs most frequently at the RNA level, and thus epigenetics mechanism could be involved. We summarize the current knowledge on ING proteins functions and their involvement in various signaling pathways. We also review the studies that have investigated the ING protein status in human tumors. The interest of ING proteins as biomarkers and their role in tumor initiation and progression is discussed.
Neuroblastoma (NB) is a common childhood malignant tumor of the neural crest-derived sympathetic nervous system. In NB the frequent loss of heterozygosity (LOH) on chromosome 1p raises the possibility that this region contains tumor-suppressor genes whose inactivation contributes to tumorigenesis. T …
The long arm of chromosome 16 is a frequent target for loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in sporadic breast cancer [1]. Detailed mapping of LOH revealed at least two frequently deleted genomic regions on chromosome 16q22.1 and 16q24.3 that could harbour classical tumour suppressor genes (TSGs) [2, 3]. Mutation analysis identified the homophilic epithelial cell adhesion gene CDH1 encoding E-cadherin, located at 16q22.1, as a TSG, but only in the histological subset of lobular breast cancer and not in the more frequent ductal breast cancer [4]. Thus, the TSGs in ductal breast cancer remain elusive. To identify these TSGs, many genes have already been screened and excluded as candidates [5-8]. Although some studies have suggested other genes as potential candidates (e.g. the transcriptional co-repressor CBFA2T3 (MTG16) [9], the zinc finger transcription factor CTCF [10] or the oxidoreductase WWOX [11]), these genes fail to fit the classic two-hit model for a TSG because no inactivating mutations could ...
Tumour suppressor gene function, focusing on several hematopoietic transcription factors recurrently mutated in acute lymphoblastic and myeloid leukemias (ALL and AML).. Cancer results from an accumulation of genetic mutations that disable the normal regulation of cell growth and survival. In the last decade, large scale cancer genome sequencing of all the major cancer types has identified ~150 genes that promote oncogenesis when mutated. To develop more effective cancer therapies, now the key challenge is to understand how these cancer driver genes, comprising a similar number of oncogenes and tumour suppressor genes, contribute to tumourigenesis and treatment response.. Our laboratory is interested in understanding tumour suppressor gene function, focusing on several hematopoietic transcription factors recurrently mutated in acute lymphoblastic and myeloid leukemias (ALL and AML). Our general approach uses shRNA-mediated inhibition of these transcription factors to drive leukemogenesis in ...

In this study we examined the LOH of 11 dinucleotide repeat loci on chromosome 10 in 208 meningiomas of all grades. We investigated the incidence and complexity of LOH relative to tumor progression. For all alleles examined, the incidence of LOH was much higher in all grades than that reported previously, with incidence and complexity of LOH increasing with tumor grade. Mapping of the regions of LOH of all of the tumors defined four regions of chromosomal deletion. These deletions coincide with those found in other cancers, supporting the hypothesis that candidate tumor suppressor genes in these regions contribute to meningeal tumorigenesis and progression.. To expand on previous studies, we examined LOH of alleles used in previous meningioma reports (11, 12, 13, 14, 15) , as well as additional loci mapping near known and candidate tumor suppressor genes on 10q. The present data are in good agreement with our reported data (11) that LOH occurs at markers D10S89 and D10S169 and with the 10q LOH ...
By activating a cancer suppressor gene, a small molecule called nutlin-3a can block cancer cell division, according to researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health. This activation of the p53 gene leads to cellular senescence, a process by which cells lose their ability to grow and divide. An opportunity for new genetic mutations occurs each time a cell divides, so limiting the number of cell divisions in a cancer cell inhibits tumor progression. This study is published in the May 1, 2008, issue of Cancer Research.
Traditionally, it has been held that a central characteristic of stem cells is their ability to divide asymmetrically. Recent advances in inducible genetic labeling provided ample evidence that symmetric stem cell divisions play an important role in adult mammalian homeostasis. It is well understood that the two types of cell divisions differ in terms of the stem cells flexibility to expand when needed. On the contrary, the implications of symmetric and asymmetric divisions for mutation accumulation are still poorly understood. In this paper we study a stochastic model of a renewing tissue, and address the optimization problem of tissue architecture in the context of mutant production. Specifically, we study the process of tumor suppressor gene inactivation which usually takes place as a sequence of two consecutive hits, and which is one of the most common patterns in carcinogenesis. We compare and contrast symmetric and asymmetric (and mixed) stem cell divisions, and focus on the rate at ...
Slit, Netrin, Ephrin, and Semaphorins roles in development have expanded greatly in the past decade from their original characterization as axon guidance molecules (AGMs) to include roles as regulato
Cancer cells escape normal growth control mechanisms as a consequence of activating (i.e., gain-of-function) mutations and/or increased expression of one or more cellular protooncogenes and/or inactivating (i.e., loss-of function) mutations and/or decreased expression of one or more tumor suppressor genes. Most oncogene and tumor suppressor gene products are components of signal transduction pathways that control cell cycle entry or exit, promote differentiation, sense DNA damage and initiate repair mechanisms, and/or regulate cell death programs. Several oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes belong to the same signaling pathway. Perhaps the best-characterized pathway includes D-type cyclin/cdk complexes, which can be oncogenes, and two tumor suppressor genes, the p16 cyclin/cdk inhibitor and the retinoblastoma gene product (reviewed in ref. 1). Nearly all tumors have mutations in multiple oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, indicating that cells employ multiple parallel mechanisms to regulate ...
Oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) both play a role in oncogenesis via opposite mechanisms. Proto-oncogenes promote normal cell growth. Occasionally, a mutation increases their activity or a duplication, translocation, or other genetic event increases their expression. Under such conditions, these genes, now called oncogenes, cause abnormal unchecked cell growth. Examples of proto-oncogenes include growth factors, tyrosine kinases, regulatory GTPases, and transcription factors. TSGs inhibit cell growth in normal cells. However, decreases in TSG activity, often caused by mutation or promoter hypermethylation, prevents their ability to stop abnormal cell growth. Examples of TSGs include genes that regulate apoptosis, cell adhesion, or DNA damage signaling. Genes may have oncogenic properties, tumor suppressor properties, or both. These properties depend not only on the tumor type, but also on the known or observed differences in gene expression or epigenetic marks. Genetic differences in ...
You have 2 copies of most genes - one from each parent. When someone has inherited an abnormal copy of a gene, their cells already start out with one mutation. If the other copy of the gene stops working (because of an acquired mutation, for example), the gene can stop functioning altogether. When the gene that stops working is a cancer susceptibility gene, cancer can develop. Some cancer susceptibility genes function as tumor suppressor genes. Tumor suppressor genes are normal genes that slow down cell division, repair DNA mistakes, or tell cells when to die (a process known as apoptosis or programmed cell death). When tumor suppressor genes dont work properly, cells can grow out of control, which can lead to cancer. Many family cancer syndromes are caused by inherited defects of tumor suppressor genes ...
WGS and WES analyses of pediatric ACTs from Southern Brazil identified a common locus containing identical TP53 and WRAP53 sequences, including corresponding polymorphisms in all TP53-R337H carriers. Moreover, an extended chromosome 17p13 haplotype containing a nonsense mutation in the putative tumor-suppressor gene XAF1 (E134*) was observed in a subset of cases. These divergent haplotypes were verified in newborns from Southern Brazil, showing that 69% of TP53-R337H haplotypes also harbor the XAF1-E134* variant.. XAF1 is a zinc-finger, pro-apoptotic protein that was originally identified in a yeast two-hybrid screen using XIAP as the bait (24). Expression of XAF1 is frequently inactivated in human cancers, primarily due to aberrant promoter methylation and gene silencing, implicating XAF1 in tumor suppression (25).

Extensive studies are now being conducted on adoptively transferred tumor-reactive T cells in an attempt to identify characteristics of those cells that are associated with tumor regression. The results of several studies suggest that HLA class I-restricted T cells that recognize nonmutated shared Ags such as the melanocyte differentiation Ags MART-1 and gp100 play a role in tumor regression in some patients (23, 26). It is more difficult to assess the role of T cells that are reactive with mutated Ags in tumor regression, because individual mutations are generally restricted to only one or a relatively small percentage of tumors. Nevertheless, TIL that are associated with tumor regression have been found to contain T cells that recognize mutated Ags (27), suggesting that they may in some cases play a role in this process.. This study presents the analysis of a TIL 1913 that was associated with a nearly complete regression of multiple metastatic lesions following adoptive immunotherapy. The ...
FGF2 is expressed in all stages of human prostate cancer. To determine whether FGF2 plays a critical role in prostate cancer progression, we have compared prostate cancer progression in TRAMP mice with hemi- or homozygous inactivation of FGF2 with that of WT littermate controls. Our results show that inactivation of either one or both alleles of FGF2 leads to significantly increased survival by inhibiting progression to the poorly differentiated phenotype and metastatic disease. It is noteworthy that inactivation of even one FGF2 allele has a strong influence on tumor progression. Analysis of mouse models of cancer has revealed that profound phenotypic consequence can result from haploinsufficiency of tumor suppressor gene function. For example, we have demonstrated previously that loss of even one PTEN allele is associated with increased rates of tumor progression in TRAMP mice (21) . Similarly, Goss et al. (30) have recently demonstrated that mice carrying only one allele of the Bloom syndrome ...

In most myeloid leukemias induced in mice by γ-radiation, one copy of chromosome 2 has suffered a deletion. To search for a potential tumor suppressor gene in that region, we have delineated the deletions in a panel of these tumors. A commonly deleted region of 2 megabase pairs (Mbp) includes the gene encoding the PU.1 transcription factor, a powerful inducer of granulocytic/monocytic differentiation. Significantly, in 87% of these tumors the remaining PU.1 allele exhibited point mutations in the PU.1 DNA binding domain. Surprisingly, 86% of these mutations altered a single CpG, implicating deamination of deoxycytidine, a common mutational mechanism, as the origin of this lesion. The hot spot resides in the codon for a contact residue essential for DNA binding by PU.1. In keeping with a tumor suppressor role for PU.1, enforced expression of wild-type PU.1 in the promyelocytic leukemia cells inhibited their clonogenic growth, induced monocytic differentiation, and elicited apoptosis. The ...

Human cancer develops as a result of accumulation of mutations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Zinc finger protein 668 (ZNF668) has recently been identified and validated as one of the highly mutated genes in breast cancer, but its function is entirely unknown. Here, we report two major functions of ZNF668 in cancer development. (1) ZNF668 functions as a tumor suppressor by regulating p53 protein stability and function. We demonstrate that ZNF668 is a nucleolar protein that physically interacts with both MDM2 and p53. By binding to MDM2, ZNF668 regulates MDM2 autoubiquitination and prevents MDM2-mediated p53 ubiquitination and degradation; ZNF668 deficiency impairs DNA damage-induced p53 stabilization. Notably, ZNF668 effectively suppresses breast cancer cell proliferation and transformation in vitro and tumorigenicity in vivo. Consistently, ZNF668 knockdown readily transforms normal mammary epithelial cells. Together, our studies identify ZNF668 as a novel breast tumor suppressor gene that

Tumor suppressor genes are protective genes. Normally, they limit cell growth by monitoring how quickly cells divide into new cells, repairing mismatched DNA, and controlling when a cell dies. When a tumor suppressor gene is mutated, cells grow uncontrollably and may eventually form a mass called a tumor. BRCA1, BRCA2, and p53 are examples of tumor suppressor genes. Germline mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes increase a womans risk of developing hereditary breast or ovarian cancers. The most commonly mutated gene in people who have cancer is p53. In fact, more than 50% of all cancers involve a missing or damaged p53 gene. Most p53 gene mutations are acquired mutations. Germline p53 mutations are rare ...
WES of patient-matched tumor pairs from 23 individuals with HNSCC demonstrates the intertumor genetic heterogeneity of this cancer. To our knowledge, this is the first study of HNSCC to examine intertumor genetic heterogeneity in synchronous nodal metastases and metachronous recurrence across multiple patients; it provides a model to determine patterns of mutation and clonal evolution that may be targetable for the treatment of recurrent/metastatic disease.. Primary tumors in our study averaged 67.6 nonsynonymous SSNVs per tumor, including mutations in tumor suppressor genes, oncogenes, and genes that have previously been found to be significantly mutated in HNSCC, such as AJUBA, CASP8, FAT1, FBXW7, NFE2L2, and TP53 (Supplemental Table 10 and Supplemental Table 4). Interestingly, primary tumors were not found to harbor mutations in several tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes previously implicated in HNSCC, including CCND1, PIK3CA, NOTCH1, PTEN, CDKN2A, HRAS, and EGFR. However, copy number ...

In the present study, we investigated serum DNA methylation for p16, p15, and RASSF1A, three tumor suppressor genes frequently hypermethylated in HCC. Blood samples were collected from 50 HCC cases 0 to 9 years before diagnosis. The frequencies of detection of gene methylation in the available samples collected closest to diagnosis are consistent with previous studies of serum DNA from HCC patients using blood collected at the time of diagnosis: p16, 44.% versus 48% (22); p15, 22% versus 25% (12); and RASSF1A, 70% versus 43% (19). The detection frequencies for p16 and RASSF1A are also similar to our previous findings in HCC tissue DNAs (14). Hypermethylation was detected 1 to 8 years before clinical diagnosis for p16, 1 to 5 years for p15, and 1 to 9 years for RASSF1A. These findings show that p16, p15, and RASSF1A hypermethylation are early events in the development of HCC.. A specific missense mutation in the p53 tumor suppressor gene at codon 249 has been reported in ,50% of HCC tumors and in ...
SnoN is a negative regulator of TGF-β signaling and also an activator of the tumor suppressor p53 in response to cellular stress. Its role in human cancer is complex and controversial with both pro-oncogenic and anti-oncogenic activities reported. To clarify its role in human cancer and provide clinical relevance to its signaling activities, we examined SnoN expression in normal and cancerous human esophageal, ovarian, pancreatic and breast tissues. In normal tissues, SnoN is expressed in both the epithelium and the surrounding stroma at a moderate level and is predominantly cytoplasmic. SnoN levels in all tumor epithelia examined are lower than or similar to that in the matched normal samples, consistent with its anti-tumorigenic activity in epithelial cells. In contrast, SnoN expression in the stroma is highly upregulated in the infiltrating inflammatory cells in high-grade esophageal and ovarian tumor samples, suggesting that SnoN may potentially promote malignant progression through ...
Transcriptional Regulation in Hematopoiesis and Leukemogenesis. Dr. McNerneys research focuses on the genomics of therapy-related and de novo acute myeloid leukemias (AML). A high-risk subset of patients is unresponsive to treatment and their survival is less than a year. Understanding the underlying genetic changes in these neoplasms is essential to identifying new therapeutic strategies for patients. Using next-generation sequencing and other genomic approaches, Dr. McNerney determined the genetic changes that occur in high-risk myeloid leukemias. She demonstrated that these leukemias have a distinct mutational profile. Half of high-risk myeloid neoplasms exhibit haploinsufficiency of the CUX1 transcription factor, a tumor suppressor gene on chromosome 7 (McNerney et al. 2013, Blood 121:869 link= http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23212519). In addition, mutations that activate the RAS signaling pathway occur at significantly higher frequency than other AMLs (McNerney et al. 2014, British ...

CRC, a type of malignant tumor, is the second leading cause of cancer-associated mortality in Asia (43). It is also the third most commonly diagnosed type of cancer in men and the second in women worldwide (44). Despite advances in treatment modalities, the prognosis for patients with CRC has not significantly improved (45). miR-27a-3p (has-miR-27a-3p) has been identified as an onco-miRNA in several solid tumors, including breast (46), ovarian (47), pancreatic (48) and gastric (16) cancer. miR-27a has also been reported to be a key oncogenic component in CRC and miR-27a is overexpressed in CRC (49). miR-27a-3p may accelerate tumorigenesis by targeting several tumor suppressors, including BTG2 (15), F-box and WD repeat domain containing 7 (19), Yes associated protein 1 (50) and Wnt family member 3A (51). Regarding BTG1, it has been reported that the tumor suppressor enhances Hoxb9-mediated transcription and inhibits HeLa cell proliferation (52). Overexpression of BTG1 has been detected in ...

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: One of the most striking features of the childhood malignancy neuroblastoma (NB) is its clinical heterogeneity. Although there is a great need for better clinical and biological markers to distinguish between tumours with different severity and to improve treatment, no clear-cut prognostic factors have been found. Also, no major NB tumour suppressor genes have been identified. METHODS: In this study we performed expression analysis by quantitative real-time PCR (QPCR) on primary NB tumours divided into two groups, of favourable and unfavourable outcome respectively. Candidate genes were selected on basis of lower expression in unfavourable tumour types compared to favourables in our microarray expression analysis. Selected genes were studied in two steps: (1) using TaqMan Low Density Arrays (TLDA) targeting 89 genes on a set of 12 NB tumour samples, and (2) 12 genes were selected from the TLDA analysis for verification using individual TaqMan assays in a new set of 13 NB tumour

In addition to genetic changes, gene hypermethylation is an alternative mechanism of tumor suppressor gene inactivation in MM. The cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 1 (CDKN2B or p15INK4B) gene lies adjacent to the tumor suppressor gene, cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2 (CDKN2A), and is frequently mutated and deleted in a wide variety of tumors,
Tumor suppressor genes, whose products are required for the control of cell proliferation, have been identified by their mutant phenotype of tissue overgrowth. Here we describe recent work on the molecular identification of tumor suppressor genes that function in two different cell types of the Drosophila larva: the blood cells, and the undifferentiated epithelial cells of developing imaginal discs. Mutations in the aberrant immune response8 (air8) gene lead to overproduction and precocious differentiation of blood cells. This gene encodes the Drosophila homolog of human ribosomal protein S6. The mutant phenotype is consistent with a role for S6 in the control of cell proliferation, and is compatible with findings from mammalian cells where alterations in S6 expression and phosphorylation are associated with changes in cell proliferation. Mutations in the discs large (dig) gene cause neoplastic overgrowth of imaginal discs in the larva. The mutant dises show loss of septate junctions and of ...
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) entry into cells is triggered by the binding of envelope glycoprotein D (gD) to a specific receptor, such as nectin-1 or herpesvirus entry mediator (HVEM), resulting in activation of the fusion effectors gB and gH and virus penetration. Rates of spontaneous mutation have been estimated under optimal growth conditions for a variety of DNA-based microbes, including viruses, bacteria, and eukaryotes. Rates of spontaneous mutation determine the ability of viruses to evolve, infect new hosts, evade immunity and undergo drug resistance. Tumor suppressor gene inactivation is a crucial event in oncogenesis. We have measured the spontaneous production of mutants in derivatives of herpes simplex virus type 1 resistant to phosphonoacetic acid. In fact, wild type HSV-1 and the antimutator HSV-1 PAAr5 exhibited a 2-4 fold higher frequency than HSV-2 in the non-HSV DNA mutatagenesis assay. Msh2, Msh3, and Msh6 are mammalian homologues of the bacterial DNA mismatch repair (DMR) mutS ...

Prostate cancer (PCa) is a malignancy cause of cancer deaths and frequently diagnosed in male. This study aimed to identify tumor suppressor genes, hub genes and their pathways by combined bioinformatics analysis. A combined analysis method was used for two types of microarray datasets (DNA methylation and gene expression profiles) from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO). Differentially methylated genes (DMGs) were identified by the R package minfi and differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were screened out via the R package limma. A total of 4451 DMGs and 1509 DEGs, identified with nine overlaps between DMGs, DEGs and tumor suppressor genes, were screened for candidate tumor suppressor genes. All these nine candidate tumor suppressor genes were validated by TCGA (The Cancer Genome Atlas) database and Oncomine database. And then, the gene ontology (GO) and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathway (KEGG) enrichment analyses were performed by DAVID (Database for Annotation, Visualization and
Marshall JC, Lee JH, Steeg PS.Womens Cancers Section, Laboratory of Molecular Pharmacology, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD, USA, of the tumor metastatic process is a new, thought provoking molecular target for the treatment of cancer. The Nm23-H1 metastasis suppressor gene stands as a validated molecular target owing to its reduced expression in many aggressive human tumors, and the reduction in metastatic potential in vivo upon re-expression in multiple cell lines. Several compounds have been identified which elevate Nm23-H1 expression in vitro including indomethacin, gamma Linolenic Acid, trichostatin A, 5-aza-deoxycytidine, and high dose medroxyprogesterone acetate. Using a model of lung metastatic colonization by MDA-MB-231 human breast carcinoma cells, we demonstrated that high dose MPA reduced the formation of overt lung metastases by 37-46% and those metastases that formed were statistically smaller. A Phase II clinical trial of high dose MPA, alone ...
The identification of hundreds of somatic mutations in cancer genomes has raised critical questions as to their functional relevance. Despite efforts to analyse such mutations computationally, our work demonstrates the importance of direct functional testing, in particular of large genes mutated at moderate levels. Our work shows, by robust genetic characterisation, that Huwe1 is a tumour suppressor in the small intestine and colon. Together with our identification of HUWE1 mutations present in human CRC that perturb its ubiquitin ligase activity, this strongly suggests it is a bona fide colonic tumour suppressor gene.. This is particularly important as previous work on HUWE1s tumourigenic role had proven controversial. HUWE1 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that controls the stability of MCL1, MYC and MYCN functions which would suggest a tumour‐suppressive role. Indeed, work using chemically induced skin cancer mouse models has indicated this is the case (Inoue et al, 2013). However, via ...

PY - 1998/1/1. Y1 - 1998/1/1. N2 - The possibility that a significant fraction of cardiac myocyte loss in various disease states occurs through apoptosis has elicited considerable attention in recent years. Evidence from human studies as well as in vitro and animal models of disease has shown that cardiac myocyte apoptosis can be induced by a variety of stimuli and in a number of disease states, including hypoxia, ischemia-reperfusion, myocardial infarction, mechanical stretch, aortic constriction, and heart failure. Because adult cardiac myocytes are terminally differentiated cells, the effects of such loss can never be fully compensated. Interest in cardiomyocyte apoptosis has been fueled by the possibility that once the proximal and distal signals were defined that initiate this pathway of cell ...

The neurofibromatosis 2 protein merlin is a classical tumor suppressor protein. Germline mutations predispose to the development of schwannomas, meningiomas and ependymomas. Merlin has been implicated in cellular migration and adhesion. This function is reflected in its subcellular localization at the plasma membrane and known interacting partners. Merlin has been regarded as an exception in not exerting a functional role within the nucleus as other tumor suppressors do. Here, we show that detection of wild-type protein in the nucleus is a rare event. However, splicing out of exon 2 leads to unrestricted entry into the nucleus. Skipping of adjacent exon 3 has no comparable effect ruling out an unspecific effect due to misfolding of the 4.1/JEF domain. Exon 2 functions as a cytoplasmic retention factor as it is able to confer sole cytoplasmic localization to a GFP fusion protein. Nuclear entry of merlin is thus regulated by alternative splicing within the 4.1/JEF domain and analogous to band 4.1 ...

N2 - Histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9) and lysine 27 (H3K27) trimethylation are properties of stably silenced heterochromatin whereas H3K9 dimethylation (H3K9me2) is important for euchromatic gene repression. In colorectal cancer cells, all of these marks, as well as the key enzymes which establish them, surround the HMLH1 promoter when it is DNA hypermethylated and aberrantly silenced, but are absent when the gene is unmethylated and fully expressed in a euchromatic state. When the aberrantly silenced gene is DNA demethylated and reexpressed following 5-aza-2′-deoxycytidine treatment, H3K9me1 and H3K9me2 are the only silencing marks ...
In addition to FoxP3s role in regulatory T cell differentiation, multiple lines of evidence have indicated that FoxP3 play important roles in cancer development. Down-regulation of FoxP3 expression has been reported in tumour specimens derived from breast, prostate, and ovarian cancer patients, indicating that FoxP3 is a potential tumour suppressor gene. Expression of FoxP3 was also detected in tumour specimens derived from additional cancer types, including pancreatic, melanoma, liver, bladder, thyroid, cervical cancers. However, in these reports, no corresponding normal tissues was analyzed, therefore it remained unclear whether FoxP3 is a pro- or anti-tumourigeneic molecule in these tumours.[citation needed]. Two lines of functional evidence strongly supported that FoxP3 serves as tumour suppressive transcription factor in cancer development. First, FoxP3 represses expression of HER2, Skp2, SATB1 and MYC oncogenes and induces expression of tumour suppressor genes P21 and LATS2 in breast and ...
The H-REV107-1 class II tumor suppressor gene is ubiquitously expressed in normal tissues and down regulated in human breast, ovarian and lung tumors. H-REV107-1 has the capacity to suppress growth of tumor cells in vitro and in vivo. H-REV107-1 is up regulated after treatment with IFN gamma. A NIH3T3 cell line harboring an estrogen inducible IRF.1/hER fusion protein showed a protein synthesis independent up regulation of H-rev107-1 expression after induction of IRF-1. H-rev107-1 is a direct target of IRF-1. Inhibition of the MEK/ERK pathway, using the MEK1 inhibitor PD 98059, leads to a restored expression of H-rev107-1. Therefore, H-REV107-1 can be a target of the MEK/ERK-pathway. Thus, H-REV107-1 is regulated by at least two different pathways. To understand the regulatory mechanisms of the expression of the H-REV107-1 gene, the putative promoter region was analyzed in silico. The sequence was amplified and cloned. Induction of the promoter constructs with TNF alpha, cAMP and IFN gamma ...

Frequent loss of heterozygosity (LOH) of LATS2 has been reported in human esophageal cancer. But, the LATS2 gene expression and its regulatory mechanism in esophageal cancer remain unclear. The present study has shown that LATS2 protein expression was mediated by miR-373 at the post-transcriptional level and inversely correlated with miR-373 amounts in esophageal cancer cell lines. Furthermore, we demonstrated that the direct inhibition of LATS2 protein was mediated by miR-373 and manipulated the ...

Chromosome 3 allele loss in preinvasive bronchial abnormalities and carcinogen-exposed, histologically normal bronchial epithelium indicates that it is an early, possibly the first, somatic genetic change in lung tumor development. Candidate tumor suppressor genes have been isolated from within distinct 3p regions implicated by heterozygous and homozygous allele loss. We have proposed that DUTT1, nested within homozygously deleted regions at 3p12-13, is the tumor suppressor gene that deletion-mapping and tumor suppression assays indicate is located in proximal 3p. The same gene, ROBO1 (accession number ), was independently isolated as the human homologue of the Drosophila gene, Roundabout. The gene, coding for a receptor with a domain structure of the neural-cell adhesion molecule family, is widely expressed and has been implicated in the guidance and migration of axons, myoblasts, and leukocytes in vertebrates. A deleted form of the gene, which mimics a naturally occurring, tumor-associated human
Increased expression of Chromosome Region Maintenance (CRM-1)/exportin-1 (XPO-1) has been correlated with poor prognosis in several aggressive tumors, making it an interesting therapeutic target. Selective Inhibitor of Nuclear Export (SINE) compounds bind to XPO-1 and block its ability to export cargo proteins. Here, we investigated the effects of a new class of SINE compounds in models of prostate cancer. We evaluated the expression of XPO-1 in human prostate cancer tissues and cell lines. Next, six SINE (KPT-127, KPT-185, KPT-205, KPT-225, KPT-251 and KPT-330) compounds having different potency with broad-spectrum, tumor-selective cytotoxicity, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profiles were tested in a panel of prostate cancer cells representing distinct differentiation/progression states of disease and genotypes. Two SINE candidates for clinical trials (KPT-251 and KPT-330) were also tested in vivo in three cell models of aggressive prostate cancer engrafted in male nude mice. XPO-1 is overexpressed

Purpose DAPK1, a tumor suppressor, is a rate-limiting effector within an ER stress-dependent apoptotic pathway. human being AML cell collection MV-4-11. Knockdown of p52NF-B or its upstream regulator, NIK, de-repressed AMLs experienced selective nuclear activation of p52NF-B. Conclusions Flt3ITD promotes a non-canonical pathway via TAK1 and p52NF-B to SRT1720 HCl suppress in colaboration with HDACs, which clarifies repression in Flt3ITD+AML. manifestation is suffering from a number of oncogenic indicators (7, 8). We previously shown the living of a Flt3/JNK1/ c-jun pathway in Flt3ITD+AML (9). c-jun may drive SRT1720 HCl the manifestation of not merely bcl-2, but also (10, 11). Nevertheless, the latter situation will be antagonistic towards the development of poor-prognosis Flt3ITD+AML. Alternatively, NF-B and CRE/c-jun regulatory sites co-exist within the promoters of particular tumor suppressor or cytokine genes including is definitely lost in quantity of human being malignancies, including ...
12:10 In the car analogy, oncogenes are the gas pedal for abnormal growth, while tumor suppressor genes are the brakes. Oncogenes encourage cell division. Each cell divides to become two, the number of cells goes up and growth occurs. Tumor suppressors block cell division. Taking the car analogy further, one then has to consider how much gas is in the tank. DNA within a human cell, packaged in chromosomes, can be copied into a new generation of cells only so many times. Each time a cell divides, the tail end of the chromosome called the telomere gets a little shorter until it is gone. Like the amount of gas in a tank, this serves as a physical limit on cell division, limiting the lifespan of a line of cells and its ability to drive tissue growth. Limited telomere length also serves as another protection against tumors as cancer cells seek to become immortal ...
Changes in the genome that allow uncontrolled cell proliferation or cell immortality are responsible for cancer. It is believed that the major changes in the genome that lead to cancer arise from mutations in tumor suppressor genes. In 1997, Kinzler and Bert Vogelstein grouped these cancer susceptibility genes into two classes: caretakers and gatekeepers. In 2004, a third classification of tumor suppressor genes was proposed by Franziska Michor, Yoh Iwasa, and Martin Nowak; landscaper genes. Caretaker genes encode products that stabilize the genome. Fundamentally, mutations in caretaker genes lead to genomic instability. Tumor cells arise from two distinct classes of genomic instability: mutational instability arising from changes in the nucleotide sequence of DNA and chromosomal instability arising from improper rearrangement of chromosomes. In contrast to caretaker genes, gatekeeper genes encode gene products that act to prevent growth of potential cancer cells and prevent accumulation ...

p73 is a protein related to the p53 tumor protein. Because of its structural resemblance to p53, it has also been considered a tumor suppressor. It is involved in cell cycle regulation, and induction of apoptosis. Like p53, p73 is characterized by the presence of different isoforms of the protein. This is explained by splice variants, and an alternative promoter in the DNA sequence. p73, also known as tumor protein 73 (TP73), protein was the first identified homologue of the tumor suppressor gene, p53. Like p53, p73 has several variants. It is expressed as distinct forms differing at either at the C- or the N-terminus. Currently, six different C-terminus splicing variants have been found in normal cells. The p73 gene encodes a protein with a significant sequence homology and a functional similarity with the tumor suppressor p53. The over-expression of p73 in cultured cells promotes a growth arrest and/or apoptosis similarly to p53. The p73 gene has been mapped to a chromosome region (1p36. 2-3) ...

Research Interest. The focus of the laboratory is to explore the regulatory milieu of tumor suppressor proteins. The lab also has an active interest in tumor cell metabolism. We employ diverse methodologies to examine the role of regulatory networks and metabolic processes in tumorigenesis.. Group Members. Ph.D. Students: Rajni Kumari, Ruhi Deshmukh, Saishruti Kohli, Richa Kumari, Shalakha Sharma, Madhurima Ghosh and Khusboo Sikligar. DST postdoctoral fellow: Dr. Suresh Yadav. Technical Assistant: Arun Lal. Summary of Research. Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. It is a disease caused when a population of cells divide out of control, invade and destroy adjacent tissues, and often spread to distant organs through a process called metastasis. p53 is one of the most important tumor suppressors in the cell and often referred to as the cellular gatekeeper for growth and division. In unstressed cells, p53 is maintained at very low levels. In response to various intracellular and ...
