We have developed a modification of methylation sensitive arbitrarily primed PCR, one of the methods of differentially methylated CpG islands in cancer cells genomes screening. Seven genes undergoing abnormal epigenetic regulation in breast cancer, SEMA6B, BIN1, VCPIP1, LAMC3, KCNH2, CACNG4 and PSMF1, have been identified by this method. Methylation and(More)
The methylation status of genes p16, MLH1, HIC1, MGMT, N33, and RB1 was determined in cervical smears of women without gynecological pathology, in biopsies from patients with high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN3), and in samples of nondysplastic cervical tissue adjacent to CIn3. The level of methylation of these genes in normal smears was(More)
An optimized methylation-sensitive restriction fingerprinting technique was used to search for differentially methylated CpG islands in the tumor genome and detected seven genes subject to abnormal epigenetic regulation in breast cancer: SEMA6B, BIN1, VCPIP1, LAMC3, KCNH2, CACNG4, and PSMF1. For each gene, the rate of promoter methylation and changes in(More)
The methylation status of four genes significant in prostate carcinogenesis p16, HIC1, N33 and GSTP1, were evaluated using quantitative methylationsensitive polymerase chain reaction. Tumor epithelia, tumor-associated stroma, normal epithelia, foci of PIN and benign prostate hyperplasia, and stroma adjacent to tumor tissues were isolated from whole-mount(More)
BACKGROUND Loss of BIN1 tumor suppressor expression is abundant in human cancer and its frequency exceeds that of genetic alterations, suggesting the role of epigenetic regulators (DNA methylation). BIN1 re-expression in the DU145 prostate cancer cell line after 5-aza-2'-deoxycytidine treatment was recently reported but no methylation of the BIN1 promoter(More)
The methylation status of p16, HIC1, N33, and GSTP1, which are involved in prostate carcinogenesis, was studied in prostate tissue samples containing neoplasms. Malignant acini, prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN) and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) foci, and stroma surrounding glandular structures of each type were detected in histological(More)
UNLABELLED Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a main group of lung malignancies. Epigenetic changes are as important as genome structural changes in carcinogenesis. MicroRNA (miRNA) is a class of non-coding single-stranded RNAs that play an important role in the regulation of matrix RNA (mRNA) translation and degradation. MicroRNA expression changes(More)
Intravenous leiomyomatosis is a rare disease from a group of tumors with the indefinite grading potential. The paper describes two cases of intravenous leiomyomatosis with its detailed morphological pattern, molecular genetic findings, and a brief literature review. Losses of heterozygosity of microsatellite repeats thatwere located on chromosome 10 in(More)
