Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the uterine cervix and oral cavity are most common cancers in India. Telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) overexpression is one of the hallmarks for cancer, and activation through promoter mutation C228T and C250T has been reported in variety of tumors and often shown to be associated with aggressive tumors. In the(More)
Breast cancer and cervical cancer are the leading causes of death in women worldwide as well as in India, whilst oral cancer is the top most common cancer among Asian especially in Indian men in terms of both incidence and mortality rate. Genetic factors determining the predisposition to cancer are being explored to identify the signature genetic variations(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer, the commonest cancer among women in the world, ranks top in India with an incidence rate of 1,45,000 new cases and mortality rate of 70,000 women every year. Chemotherapy outcome for breast cancer is hampered due to poor response and irreversible dose-dependent cardiotoxicity which is determined by genetic variations in drug(More)
Human Pregnane X Receptor (also called NR1I2), a member of orphan nuclear receptor superfamily, maps to chromosome 3q11-13 with ten exons coding for 434 amino acids (Zhang et al., 2001). PXR is a xenobiotic sensor and acts as a transcription factor of drug metabolizing enzymes (DMEs) and drug transporters. It can potentially affect the efficacy of(More)
Oral squamous cell carcinoma is the most aggressive cancer that is associated with high recurrence, metastasis, and poor treatment outcome. Dysregulation of long non-coding RNAs has been shown to promote tumor growth and metastasis in several cancers. In this study, we investigated the expression of 11 selected long non-coding RNAs that are associated with(More)
