  • Clinicopathological significance of Nup88 expression in patients with colorectal cancer
  • 2003
  • Ingår i: Oncology. - 0890-9091. ; 64:4, s. 361-369
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p><em>Objective:</em> The nucleoporin Nup88 is overexpressed in a series of human malignancies, however, its clinicopathological significance has not been studied. Our aims were to analyze Nup88 expression in normal mucosa, primary tumors and metastases from colorectal cancer patients and further to identify relationships of Nup88 expression with clinicopathological and other factors.</p><p><em>Materials and Methods:</em> Using immunohistochemistry, we investigated Nup88 expression in 198 primary colorectal tumors, 96 normal mucosa samples and 35 lymph node metastases.</p><p><em>Results:</em> The results showed that the intensity of Nup88 expression increased from the normal mucosa to the primary tumors (p &lt; 0.0001) and tended to increase from the primary tumors to the metastases (p = 0.15). Both primary tumors and metastases presented stronger expression in the invasive margin and vascular-invaded areas. Nup88 expression was positively related to distal tumor location (p = 0.01), infiltrative growth pattern (p = 0.04) and higher proliferative activity (p = 0.04) and reversely to the grade of differentiation (p = 0.02) and apoptosis (p = 0.049). Strong expression of Nup88 predicted a worse outcome in the patients with distal tumors during the follow-up period of up to 3 years (p = 0.02).</p><p><em>Conclusions:</em> It seems that overexpression of Nup88 was involved in the tumorigenesis and aggressiveness of colorectal cancers, and Nup88 may be used as a prognostic factor in patients with distal tumors.</p>

  • Microsatellite instability and MBD4 mutation in unselected colorectal cancer
  • 2003
  • Ingår i: Anticancer Research. - 0250-7005 .- 1791-7530. ; 23:4, s. 3569-3574
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p><strong>BACKGROUND</strong>: We investigated the prognostic significance of microsatellite instability (MSI) and the association with clinicopathological factors in colorectal cancer, and further identified MBD4 mutations and their clinicopathological significance.</p><p><strong>PATIENTS AND METHODS</strong>: MSI was analyzed in 201 colorectal cancers. Sequencing analysis of MBD4 was performed in 26 MSI and 28 microsatellite stable (MSS) tumors.</p><p><strong>RESULTS</strong>: Twenty-seven tumors (13.4%) were MSI but did not correlate with improved survival. MSI was significantly correlated with proximal colon tumors (p &lt; 0.001), poor differentiation or mucinous type (p = 0.005) and multiple tumors (p = 0.04). MBD4 mutations were found in 15% MSI but not in MSS tumors. The mutated cases showed female overrepresentation, proximal site and poorly-differentiated/mucinous type.</p><p><strong>CONCLUSION</strong>: MSI was not correlated with survival, but shared other features associated with MSI in colorectal cancer as demonstrated by others. The clinicopathological variables associated with the MBD4 mutations were probably the reflection of MSI features.</p>

  • The BH3-only member <em>Noxa</em> may not be involved in the development of unselected colorectal cancer
  • ????
  • Annan publikation (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • <p><em>Noxa</em> is an BH3-only member of the Bcl-2 family, upregulated by p53 as a response to DNA damage. Mutations in the BH3-only region of other BH3-only members lead to an inactive protein. We have investigated the mRNA expression of Noxa with real-time PCR in 94 unselected colorectal adenocarcinomas and the corresponding normal mucosa. Further, we searched for mutations in the Noxa gene using single stranded conformation polymorphism and DNA sequencing. The mRNA expression of <em>Noxa</em> was weak in 9% and strong in 2% of the tumours and decreased in 9% and increased in 16% of the tumours compared to the normal mucosa, but these changes did not have any clinical or pathological significance. We did not find any mutations in the gene. Thus, our observations suggest that the variations in <em>Noxa</em> gene may not be of particular importance in the development of unselected colorectal cancer.</p>

    • <p>Noxa is a BH3-only member of the Bcl-2 family, upregulated by p53 as a response to DNA damage. Mutations in the BH3-only region of other BH3-only members lead to an inactive protein. We have investigated the mRNA expression of Noxa with real-time PCR in 94 unselected colorectal adenocarcinomas and the corresponding normal mucosa. Among them, Noxa protein expression was investigated with immunohistochemistry in 16 tumors and six corresponding normal mucosa samples. Further, we searched for Noxa mutations in all the cases using single-stranded conformation polymorphism and DNA sequencing. The mRNA expression of Noxa was weak in 9% and strong in 2% of the tumors, and decreased in 9% and increased in 16% of the tumors compared with the normal mucosa, however, these changes did not have any clinical or pathological significance. The protein level in most of the cases investigated was correlated with the mRNA level. We did not find any mutations in the Noxa gene. Thus, we suggest that Noxa may not be of importance in the development of colorectal cancer.</p>

  • Clinicopathological significance of stromelysin-3 expression in colorectal cancer
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: Oncology. - 0890-9091. ; 67:1, s. 67-72
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Objective: Stromelysin-3 (ST3) is a member of the matrix metalloproteinases and suggested to play a role in tissue remodeling observed in growth and metastasis of tumors. ST3 overexpression in breast cancer is associated with a worse outcome. Our aims were to analyze ST3 expression in primary colorectal tumors and metastases, and further to identify relationships of the expression to clinicopathological factors. Materials and Methods: ST3 expression was immunohistochemically analyzed in 200 primary colorectal adenocarcinomas and 36 corresponding lymph node metastases. Results: Scoring was performed by counting the percentages of positive cells and the percentages of positive areas. One hundred and one (51%) cases showed ≤5% positive cells and 99 (49%) >5% positive cells. One hundred and two (51%) cases showed ≤30% positive area and 98 (49%) >30% positive area. ST3 expression determined by both scoring methods was individually related to females, distally located tumors, infiltrative growth pattern and microsatellite stability. No relationship was found with age, Dukes' stage, differentiation and survival. Conclusions: These results suggest that ST3 protein was more involved in the pathway of colorectal cancer development in females, distal locations, infiltrative growth patterns and microsatellite stability.
