BACKGROUND Transcriptional activity of the heme oxygenase-1 gene (HMOX-1) is modulated by a GTn-repeat promoter polymorphism. The long GTn-repeat allele has been previously reported to be associated with increased risk of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) in male areca chewer and short GTn-repeat allele has been proposed to have protective properties in(More)
AIMS Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs) display genetic alterations on chromosome 22. GTn repeat (GTn) length polymorphism in the promoter of haeme oxygenase-1 gene (HMOX-1) is located on chromosome 22 and associated with malignant growth. The aim was to investigate the role of HMOX-1 promoter polymorphism in GIST patients. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
Esophageal cancer related gene 1 (ECRG1) is a novel candidate tumor suppressor gene in human esophageal squamous cells. Overexpression of ECRG1 protein inhibits tumor cell proliferation. Genetic polymorphisms in coding sequences of the gene may cause functional alterations of the gene product and be associated with higher cancer risk and disease phenotypes.(More)
The basal transcription of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) regulation is dependent upon a GT repeat germ line polymorphism (GTn) in the promoter of the HO-1 gene. We determined the prognostic value of HO-1 promoter polymorphism on the natural postoperative course of complete resected oesophageal cancer. Genomic DNA from 297 patients was amplified by polymerase(More)
