MicroRNA (miRNA), which plays an important role in tumorigenesis, can regulate post-transcriptional gene expression by binding to the 3' untranslated regions (3'-UTRs) of messenger RNAs and repressing its translation. Several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are considered to have significant impacts on susceptibility of the role these genetic(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND A number of important cancer-associated covalent modifications of histone genes can be regulated by microRNAs (miRNAs) that bind to their target sites in the 3'-untranslated regions. We evaluated the effect of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the miR-502 binding site in the 3'-untranslated region of the SET8 gene on the clinical(More)
Accumulation of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the displacement loop (D-loop) of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) may be associated with an increased cancer risk. We investigated the non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) risk profile of D-loop SNPs in a case-control study. The minor alleles of nucleotides 73A/G, 263A/G, 315C/C insert were associated with a(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) can bind to the 3' untranslated regions (UTRs) of messenger RNAs, where they interfere with translation and thereby regulate cell differentiation, apoptosis, and tumorigenesis. Genetic polymorphisms in the 3' UTRs targeted by miRNAs alter the strength of miRNA binding in a manner that affects the behavior of individual miRNAs. In this(More)
OBJECTIVE microRNA (miRNA)-related single nucleotide polymorphisms (miR-SNPs) in miRNA-processing machinery genes can affect cancer risk, treatment efficacy, and patients' prognosis by mediating the expression of targeted genes. Five miR-SNPs in miRNA processing machinery genes, including XPO5 (rs11077), RAN (rs14035), TNRC6B (rs9623117), GEMIN3 (rs197412),(More)
Accumulation of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the displacement loop (D-loop) of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) might be associated with cancer risk and disease outcome. We have identified 140 SNPs including 26 SNPs with frequency distribution of minor allele greater than 5% in a case-control study for non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients previously. In this(More)
