We aimed to analyze MED12 mutation in fibroadenomas (FAs) and phyllodes tumors (PTs) of the breast, which are closely related and consist of epithelial and stromal components. Targeted deep-sequencing using next-generation sequencing was performed in FAs (n = 58) and PTs (n = 27). The frequency of MED12 mutant tumors was significantly higher (P = 0.016) in(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the promoter methylation status of TRIM9 in breast cancer and to determine the presence of TRIM9-methylated circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in plasma. Bisulfite sequencing with a next generation sequencer showed TRIM9 promoter methylation in 92 % (11/12) of breast cancer cell lines (BCCs) and 68 % (13/19) of(More)
Loss of imprinting (LOI) of insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) is thought to be implicated in the pathogenesis of some tumors by upregulating IGF2 mRNA but its role in the pathogenesis of fibroadenomas (FAs) and phyllodes tumors (PTs) of the breast is yet to be studied. LOI of IGF2 was investigated in 25 FAs and 17 PTs which were heterozygous for Apa I(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the promoter methylation status of SEPT9_v2 in breast cancer and to detect this methylated gene in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) in plasma. Bisulfite sequencing was performed with a next generation sequencer. Methylation of the SEPT9_v2 promoter was found in 67% (8/12) of breast cancer cell lines and 53% (10/19)(More)
