Background Prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients remains poor, and the chemoradiotherapy (CRT) applied to ESCC patients often failed. Therefore, development of biomarkers to predict CRT response is immensely important for choosing the best treatment strategy of an individual patient.

Background and Aim We assessed the feasibility of combined endoscopic ultrasound and computed tomography on response evaluation in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma treated by definitive chemoradiotherapy, and the impact of response on prognosis. Methods Sixty patients treated by definitive chemoradiotherapy were followed by miniprobe endoscopic ultrasound and computed tomography. The post-treatment esophageal wall thickness was measured by miniprobe endoscopic ultrasound. Metasta...

Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most common cancers and lethal malignancies in the world. Discovering novel biomarkers that correlate with GC may provide opportunities to reduce the severity of GC. As one of Notch receptor family members in mammals, Notch4 plays an important role in carcinogenesis of several tumors. However, the precise function and mechanism of Notch4 in GC remain undefined. To address this question, we investigated whether Notch4 could be involved in GC progression. We found...

Each year the American Cancer Society estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths that will occur in the United States in the current year and compiles the most recent data on cancer incidence, mortality, and survival. Incidence data were collected by the National Cancer Institute (Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results [SEER] Program), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (National Program of Cancer Registries), and the North American Association of Central Cancer Regist...

漏 2014 Elsevier Inc. Mechanical and thermal activation of ion channels iscentral to touch, thermosensation, and pain. TheTRAAK/TREK K2P potassium channel subfamily produces background currents that alter neuronal excitability in response to pressure, temperature, signaling lipids, and anesthetics. How such diverse stimuli control channel function is unclear. Here we report structures of K2P4.1 (TRAAK) bearing C-type gate-activating mutations that reveal a tilting and straightening of the M4 inne...

The transcriptional network of the SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 17 (SOX17) and the prognostic impact of SOX17 protein expression in human cancers remain largely unclear. In this study, we evaluated the prognostic effect of low SOX17 protein expression and its dysregulation of transcriptional network in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Low SOX17 protein expression was found in 47.4% (73 of 154) of ESCC patients with predicted poor prognosis. Re-expression of SOX17 in ESCC cells ca...

Abstract Breast cancer has been considered to be a multifactorial disease with a wide array of well-characterized gene mutations and chromosomal abnormalities. However, it is becoming evident that the onset or development of breast cancer also depends on epigenetic factors, although the mechanisms have not been fully elucidated. We performed a genome-wide analysis of DNA methylation of breast carcinomatous tissues and paired normal tissues to examine the differences in methylation between them. ...

Epigenetic programs are now widely recognized as being critical to the biological processes of cancer genesis. However, it has not been comprehensively understood how and to what degree they can influence anticancer drugs responses. The development of drugs targeting epigenetic regulation has generated great enthusiasm, with a growing number in clinical development. We highlight here that epigenetic modifications can be involved in the regulation of genes responsible for the absorption, distribu...

Background: DNA methylation is a well-known epigenetic mechanism involved in epigenetic gene regulation. Several genes were reported hypermethylated in CRC, althought no gene marker was proven to be individually of sufficient sensitivity or specificity in routine clinical practice. Here, we identified novel epigenetic markers and assessed their combined use for diagnostic accuracy. Methods: We used methylation arrays on samples from several effluents to characterize methylation profiles in CRC s...

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the global patterns of aberrant DNA methylation in thyroid cancer. Research Design and Methods: We have used DNA methylation arrays to determine, for the first time, the genome-wide promoter methylation status of papillary, follicular, medullary, and anaplastic thyroid tumors. Results: We identified 262 and 352 hypermethylated and 13 and 21 hypomethylated genes in differentiated papillary and follicular tumors, respectively. Interestingly, th...

To achieve adequate organ development and size, cell proliferation and differentiation have to be tightly regulated and coordinated. The transcription factor Pax6 regulates patterning, neurogenesis and proliferation in forebrain development. The molecular basis of this regulation is not well understood. As the bipartite DNA-binding paired domain of Pax6 regulates forebrain development, we examined mice with point mutations in its individual DNA-binding subdomains PAI (Pax6Leca4, N50K) and RED (P...

Abstract This systematic review aims to summarize epigenome-wide studies on aberrant DNA methylation and its association with survival in patients with gastrointestinal adenocarcinoma. The 15 studies identified showed a large variety of methodological approaches for the identification of prognostic epigenetic markers from genome-wide methylation analyses. None of the findings were reported by more than one study in this systematic review. Further validation studies, a better reporting of methods...

Abstract Background Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is a highly invasive malignant tumor and the majority of patients have advanced stage of ESCC at diagnosis with poor outcome. Identification of sensitive and specific biomarkers for early screening of ESCC is critical for improving patient overall survival. Methods Pyrosequencing was used to determine the magnitude of DNA methylation on the selected regions PAX1 (paired box gene1), SOX1(sex determining region Y-box-1), and ZNF582 (zin...

Background: Aberrant hypermethylation of the Septin 9 (SEPT9) is an early event in several human cancers, and increasing studies have reported good performance of methylated SEPT9 (mSEPT9) in cancer diagnosis. Recent studies further focused on its value in cancer prognostic, but results are not clearly elucidated. Methods: A comprehensive search to identify relevant studies about the association between mSEPT9 and cancer prognosis was conducted through the EMBASE, PubMed, and Web of Science data...

Abstract Over the last decade, the development and progress of next-generation sequencers incorporated with classical biochemical analyses have drastically produced novel insights into transcription factors, including Sry-like high-mobility group box (SOX) factors. In addition to their primary functions in binding to and activating specific downstream genes, transcription factors also participate in the dedifferentiation or direct reprogramming of somatic cells to undifferentiated cells or speci...

Prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients is poor and the concurrent chemoradiation therapy (CCRT) provided to ESCC patients often failed due to resistance. Therefore, development of biomarkers for predicting CCRT response is immensely important. In this study, we evaluated the predicting value of SRY (sex determining region Y)-box聽17 (SOX17) protein during CCRT and its dysregulation of transcriptional targets in CCRT resistance in ESCC. Pyrosequencing methylation, RT-qPCR ...
