In order to discover previously unidentified cancer-associated genes, we analyzed genome-wide differences in gene expression between tumor biopsies and normal tissues. Among those differentially regulated genes, we identified Sharpin (Shank-associated RH domain-interacting protein) as a commonly up-regulated gene in multiple human cancer types. Although rat(More)
The identification of novel tumor-specific proteins or antigens is of great importance for diagnostic and therapeutic applications in pancreatic cancer. Using oligonucleotide microarrays, we identified a broad spectrum of differentially expressed pancreatic cancer-related genes. Of these, we selected an overexpressed expressed sequence taq and cloned a(More)
We examined genome-wide differences in gene expression between tumor biopsies and normal tissues in order to identify differentially regulated genes in tumors. Cancer-upregulated gene 2 (CUG2) was identified as an expressed sequence tag (EST) that exhibits significant differential expression in multiple human cancer types. CUG2 showed weak sequence homology(More)
Neuronal growth regulator 1 (NEGR1) has become a great interest based on the recent findings that its genetic alteration is implicated in human obesity and human dyslexia. By analyzing the gene expression profiles of tumor biopsies and normal tissues, we identified NEGR1 as a commonly down-regulated gene in many types of human cancer tissues. NEGR1 contains(More)
