OBJECTIVE Studies of cervical cancer and its immediate precursor, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia 3 (CIN3), have identified genes that often show aberrant DNA methylation and therefore represent candidate early detection markers. We used quantitative PCR assays to evaluate methylation in five candidate genes (TNFRSF10C, DAPK1, SOCS3, HS3ST2 and CDH1)(More)
Reprimo is a new candidate mediator of p53-mediated cell cycle arrest at the G2 phase. Loss of Reprimo gene expression accompanied by its promoter methylation was identified in pancreatic and lung cancers. Our aim was to examine the methylation status of Reprimo in a broad range of cancers. We examined Reprimo expression by RT-PCR and the DNA methylation(More)
The perturbations of the cytokine signaling pathway play an important role in lymphoid/hematopoietic tumors. Aberrant promoter methylation is the major mechanism of gene silencing in tumors. We examined 150 lymphoid/hematopoietic tumors or potential premalignant specimens, 55 control specimens and 12 EBV-transformed B lymphoblastoid cultures and 10(More)
