    • Genetic variants in ELOVL2 and HSD17B12 predict melanoma-specific survival. 

      Dai, Wei; Liu, Hongliang; Xu, Xinyuan; Ge, Jie; Luo, Sheng; Zhu, Dakai; Amos, Christopher I; ... (13 authors) (International journal of cancer, 2019-02-08)
      Fatty acids play a key role in cellular bioenergetics, membrane biosynthesis and intracellular signaling processes and thus may be involved in cancer development and progression. In the present study, we comprehensively ...
    • Genetic variants in PDSS1 and SLC16A6 of the ketone body metabolic pathway predict cutaneous melanoma-specific survival. 

      Dai, Wei; Liu, Hongliang; Chen, Ka; Xu, Xinyuan; Qian, Danwen; Luo, Sheng; Amos, Christopher I; ... (12 authors) (Molecular carcinogenesis, 2020-06)
      A few single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been identified to be associated with cutaneous melanoma (CM) survival through genome-wide association studies, but stringent multiple testing corrections required for the ...
    • Polymorphisms of nucleotide excision repair genes predict melanoma survival. 

      Li, Chunying; Yin, Ming; Wang, Li-E; Amos, Christopher I; Zhu, Dakai; Lee, Jeffrey E; Gershenwald, Jeffrey E; ... (9 authors) (The Journal of investigative dermatology, 2013-07)
      Melanoma is the most highly malignant skin cancer, and nucleotide excision repair (NER) is involved in melanoma susceptibility. In this analysis of 1,042 melanoma patients, we evaluated whether genetic variants of NER genes ...
