We report the genomic organization of a novel human gene mapped to chromosome 6p21, encoding a putative glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchored protein containing a MAM (meprin, A5 antigen, protein tyrosine phosphatase μ) domain, that we have termed as GPIM (GPI and MAM) protein. GPIM gene consists of an 8.9 kb transcript composed of 17 coding exons(More)
Colorectal cancers from the mutator phenotype pathway display distinctive pathological features and confer a lesser aggressiveness than colorectal adenocarcinomas originated by the suppressor pathway. The goal of this work was to test whether tumors developed through the mutator pathway could show a decrease in matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity. We(More)
Inactivation of p16 has been reported as one of the more frequent events in human carcinogenesis. In order to contribute to the knowledge of the impact of p16 silencing by promoter methylation, we have investigated p16 expression and inactivation of p16 by methylation in two of the major types of human cancer, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and(More)
Gene amplification is clearly an important aspect of tumour growth and development and has prognostic significance in certain tumours. The identification and genetic characterisation of new areas of amplification in human malignancy remains an important goal in understanding the underlying genetic lesions within these tissues. In the present work,(More)
PURPOSE Telomerase activity and p16 expression can be considered two of the most important molecular markers implicated in tumorigenesis. Our main aim was to study the cooperative role of both molecular alterations in the prognosis of patients surgically resected for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). PATIENTS AND METHODS We have determined telomerase(More)
We have evaluated telomerase activity in a tumour population of 65 human cancers by using a TRAP-based method, in which detection is performed by an enzyme immunoassay (ELISA). We have corroborated that sensitivity and specificity of this new procedure can be considered similar to that of classical TRAP method, having the advantage of a rapid and(More)

BACKGROUND Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) of chromosome 3p has been observed commonly in carcinomas of various tumor tissues, including colorectal carcinoma (CRC). Because there is no report analyzing 3p deletions in relation to patient prognosis in CRC, the authors investigated the prognostic value of LOH on 3p in 87 patients with sporadic CRC. METHODS DNA(More)
Several distinct genetic alterations have been associated with colorectal tumorigenesis. This study investigated the frequency of microsatellite instability, also known as replication error (RER), and loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at six chromosome regions in sporadic colorectal cancer (CRC). Eighty-six tumour and paired normal mucosa samples were included(More)
3p deletions and telomerase reactivation are two of the most frequent events described in relation to non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) pathogenesis. Moreover, a number of genes that map on 3p have been proposed as candidates to tumour-suppressor genes of importance in the lung cancer process. In this work, we analysed deletions at different 3p loci in(More)
