The aim of this study is to understand the mechanism of EGFR overexpression in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). For this reason, expression/mutation of EGFR were analyzed in 30 dysplastic head and neck lesions and 148 HNSCC samples of Indian patients along with 3 HNSCC cell lines. In addition, deletion/methylation/mutation/expression of SH3GL2(More)
The prevalence of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, HNSCC, continues to grow. Change in the expression of TP53 in HNSCC affects its downstream miRNAs and their gene targets, anomalously altering the expressions of the five genes, MEIS1, AGTR1, DTL, TYMS and BAK1. These expression alterations follow the repression of TP53 that upregulates miRNA-107,(More)
Proper expression and functioning of transcription factors (TFs) are essential for regulation of different traits and thus could be crucial for the development of complex diseases. Subjects with Down syndrome (DS) have a higher incidence of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) while solid tumors, like breast cancer (BC) and oral cancer (OC), show rare(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the alterations of PTCH1 (deletion/promoter methylation/mutation/expression) during the development of cervical cancer (CACX). For this purpose, deletion/methylation of PTCH1 were analyzed in HPV16 positive exfoliated asymptomatic cervical swabs (n = 74), cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) (n = 32), CACX (n = 174)(More)
INTRODUCTION To understand the role of two interacting proteins LIMD1 and pRB in development of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), alterations of these genes were analyzed in 25 dysplastic head and neck lesions, 58 primary HNSCC samples and two HNSCC cell lines. METHODS Deletions of LIMD1 and RB1 were analyzed along with mutation and promoter(More)
The aim of the study was to understand the role of SLIT2–ROBO1/2–CDC42 signalling pathways in development of breast cancer (BC). Primary BC samples (n=150), comprising of almost equal proportion of four subtypes were tested for molecular alterations of SLIT2, ROBO1, ROBO2 and CDC42, the key regulator genes of this pathway. Deletion and methylation(More)
OBJECTIVES Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes tumors primarily Cervical cancer. Recently, inconsistent reports came up in Breast cancer (BC) too. In India, despite treatment 70,218 BC patients die each year. So, we explored the association of HPV, if any, with BC prognosis in Indian pre-therapeutic (PT) and Neo-adjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) patients with(More)
The Vets erythroblastosis virus E26 oncogene homolog2 (ETS2) is known to have a stimulatory role in breast cancer progression. To find out its participation in the development of breast cancer, we have investigated a functional polymorphism in ETS2, rs461155, in a group of breast cancer patients. Allelic and genotypic frequencies obtained were compared with(More)
