The present study aimed to reveal the molecular characteristics induced by radiotherapy in rectal cancer at the transcriptome level. Microarray data (ID, GSE26027) downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus database were re-analyzed to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between rectal cancer tissues during and prior to radiotherapy. The DEGs were then inputted into the database for annotation, visualization and integrated discovery, an online tool to perform enrichment analyses… 
Profiles of immune cell infiltration and immune-related genes in the tumor microenvironment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
This study provided a comprehensive understanding of the TME in ESCC patients and the establishment of the risk model is valuable for the early identification of high-risk patients to facilitate individualized treatment and improve the possibility of immunotherapy response.
Collagen XI alpha 1 chain, a potential therapeutic target for cancer
The recent developments regarding elucidation of the relationship between COL11A1 and various cancers, as well as the interaction between COL12A2 and intracellular signaling pathways, indicate the possibility of using COL 11A1 as a target for cancer treatment.
Olfactory Receptor OR7A17 Expression Correlates with All-Trans Retinoic Acid (ATRA)-Induced Suppression of Proliferation in Human Keratinocyte Cells
Investigation of the involvement of OR7A17 in the ATRA-induced suppression of human keratinocyte (HaCaT) proliferation indicated that ATRA suppresses cell proliferation through the downregulation of OR 7A17 via RAR α- and γ-mediated retinoid signaling, which makes it a potential therapeutic target for ameliorating the anti-proliferative effects of ATRA.
The Biological Role of the Collagen Alpha-3 (VI) Chain and Its Cleaved C5 Domain Fragment Endotrophin in Cancer
The importance of the collagen alpha-3 (VI) chain and endotrophin in cancer progression, the future clinical applications of endotrophIn and the remaining challenges in this field are discussed.


In silico identification of oncogenic potential of fyn-related kinase in hepatocellular carcinoma
Findings implied that FRK is a multitalented signal transduction molecule that produces diverse biological responses in different cell types in various microenvironments, and demonstrated the accuracy of computational prediction and suggested that other predicted TAGs can be potential targets for future cancer research.
Early dynamic transcriptomic changes during preoperative radiotherapy in patients with rectal cancer: a feasibility study.
Micro-arrays can efficiently assess early transcriptomic changes during preoperative radiotherapy for rectal cancer, and may help better understand tumor radioresistance.
hPEBP4 as a predictive marker for the pathological response of rectal cancer to preoperative radiotherapy
The study revealed the independent predictive values of hPEBP4 in response of rectal cancer to preoperative radiotherapy, which suggests that upregulating hPE BP4 might be a potential mechanism by whichrectal cancer cells avoid the destructive effects of radiotherapy.
Detection of differentially expressed genes in human colon carcinoma cells treated with a selective COX-2 inhibitor
Evidence is provided that some of the effects of NS-398 on carcinoma cells may be due to modulation of genes which regulate programmed cell death, cell proliferation and cell–cell communication.
TWIST1 Is Expressed in Colorectal Carcinomas and Predicts Patient Survival
Results suggest that TWIST1 expression levels could be a tumor indicator in stage II patients and help select patients at greater risk of poor prognosis who might benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy.
Predictive utility of cyclo-oxygenase-2 expression by colon and rectal cancer.
COX-2 expression has predictive utility for management of rectal but not colon cancer, and was found to be expressed in 93% of colon cancers and 87% ofrectal cancers.
TGFBI protein high expression predicts poor prognosis in colorectal cancer patients.
TGFBI plays an important role in the progression of colorectal cancers and it is an independent poor prognostic factor for coloreCTal cancer patients, which is significantly lower in patients with high TGFBI expression.
p53 and p27 as predictors of clinical outcome for rectal-cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant therapy.
The study showed that the rate of positive identification of molecular markers, p27 and Bcl-2, increased following neoadjuvant therapy and either the p53 (-) or p27 (+) status was a good predictor for FR in the pre-radiation biopsy specimens.
Biomarkers for response to neoadjuvant chemoradiation for rectal cancer.
On the basis of composite data, p53 is unlikely to have utility as a predictor of response, and epidermal growth factor receptor, thymidylate synthase, and p21 should be evaluated in larger prospective clinical trials for their ability to guide preoperative therapy choices in LARC.
The role of COX-2 in rectal cancer treated with preoperative radiotherapy
It is concluded that COX-2 expression is overexpressed in the majority of rectal cancers treated with radiotherapy and likely plays a role in local relapse.
