To ascertain the involvement of human chromosome 3p and its established critical TSG regions in various epithelial malignancies, 21 polymorphic and 2 nonpolymorphic 3p markers were allelotyped in nonpapillary RCC, NSCLC, CC and BC from a total of 184 patients. LOH was observed with high frequency in all types of cancer studied: RCC (52/57, 91%), BC (41/51,(More)
We searched for chromosome 3p homo- and hemizygous losses in 23 lung cancer cell lines, 53 renal cell and 22 breast carcinoma biopsies using 31 microsatellite markers located in frequently deleted 3p regions. In addition, two sequence-tagged site markers (NLJ-003 and NL3-001) located in the Alu-PCR clone 20 region (AP20) and lung cancer (LUCA) regions,(More)
We report chromosome 3p deletion mapping of 32 cervical carcinoma (CC) biopsies using 26 microsatellite markers located in frequently deleted 3p regions to detect loss of heterozygosity and homozygous loss. In addition, two STS markers (NLJ-003 and NL3-001) located in the 3p21.3 telomeric (3p21.3T) and 3p21.3 centromeric (3p21.3C) regions, respectively,(More)
RHOA is a small GTPase involved in morphogenesis, cell adhesion, and cell cycle control. RHOA (3p21.31) is a potential oncogene, causing cell malignant transformation. A study was made of the mechanisms activating RHOA transcription in several epithelial tumors. Semiquantitative RT-PCR revealed elevated transcription of RHOA in tumors (45 cases of breast(More)
BACKGROUND Human chromosome arm 3p is often affected in various epithelial tumors, and several tumor suppressor genes were recently identified in this region. The most affected is 3p21 region that is 50-100% rearranged in more than 30 types of malignancies, mostly in epithelial cancers: lung, breast, ovarian, cervical, kidney, head and neck, nasopharyngeal,(More)
Methylation-sensitive restriction endonuclease analysis (MSRA) followed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) have been used to estimate the methylation level of 13 CpG dinucleotides in the promoter region of the putative suppressor gene RASSF1A (3p21.31) in squamous cell carcinomas of the uterine cervix (SCCs) carrying human papillomavirus (HPV) types 16, 18,(More)
