Deleted in lung and esophageal cancer 1 (DLEC1), located at 3p22-p21.3, is involved in the carcinogenesis of multiple cancers, but its role in prostate cancer (PrCa) remains unclear. Here, we studied the epigenetic alteration of DLEC1 and its functions in prostate cancer. We found that DLEC1 was highly expressed in normal prostate tissues, normal prostatic(More)
This study investigated the epigenetic alteration and biological function of the pro-apoptotic gene ASC/TMS1 in renal cell carcinoma. ASC/TMS1 was downregulated in five out of six RCC cell lines. A significant downregulation was also detected in sixty-seven paired renal tumors compared with adjacent non-cancerous tissues. The downregulation of ASC/TMS1 was(More)
The goal of this study is to identify novel tumor suppressor genes silenced by promoter methylation in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) and discover new epigenetic biomarkers for early cancer detection. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a major cause of DNA damage that correlates with cancer initiation and progression. Glutathione peroxidase 3 (GPX3),(More)
