Genetic variants in fanconi anemia pathway genes BRCA2 and FANCA predict melanoma survival.
(The Journal of investigative dermatology, 2015-02)
Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is the most lethal skin cancer. The Fanconi anemia (FA) pathway involved in DNA crosslink repair may affect CM susceptibility and prognosis. Using data derived from published genome-wide association ...
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms of stemness genes predicted to regulate RNA splicing, microRNA and oncogenic signaling are associated with prostate cancer survival.
Prostate cancer (PCa) is a clinically and molecularly heterogeneous disease, with variation in outcomes only partially predicted by grade and stage. Additional tools to distinguish indolent from aggressive disease are needed. ...
Associations between expression levels of nucleotide excision repair proteins in lymphoblastoid cells and risk of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
(Molecular carcinogenesis, 2018-06)
Squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck (SCCHN) is one of the most common malignancies worldwide, and nucleotide excision repair (NER) is involved in SCCHN susceptibility. In this analysis of 349 newly diagnosed SCCHN patients ...
Potentially Functional Variants of ATG16L2 Predict Radiation Pneumonitis and Outcomes in Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer after Definitive Radiotherapy.
(Journal of thoracic oncology : official publication of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, 2018-05)
INTRODUCTION:Autophagy not only plays an important role in the progression of cancer but is also involved in tissue inflammatory response. However, few published studies have investigated associations between functional ...
ERCC1 and ERCC2 variants predict survival in gastric cancer patients.
(PloS one, 2013-01)
PURPOSE: ERCC1 and ERCC2 play critical roles in the nucleotide excision repair pathway that effectively repairs DNA damage induced by chemotherapeutic agents. Therefore, functional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) ...
