Association of combined p73 and p53 genetic variants with tumor HPV16-positive oropharyngeal cancer.
Genetic variants of p27 and p21 as predictors for risk of second primary malignancy in patients with index squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck.
(Molecular cancer, 2012-03-26)
Cell cycle deregulation is common in human cancer, and alterations of p27 and p21, two critical cell cycle regulators, have been implicated in the development of many human malignancies. Therefore, we hypothesize that p27 ...
Genetic variants of NOXA and MCL1 modify the risk of HPV16-associated squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
(BMC cancer, 2012-05)
The cooperation between phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate induced protein 1 (NOXA) and myeloid cell leukemia 1 (MCL1) is critical in the intrinsic apoptotic pathway. Human papillomavirus 16 (HPV16), by inducing p53 and pRb-E2F ...
Site disparities in apoptotic variants as predictors of risk for second primary malignancy in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
(BMC cancer, 2016-02-08)
FAS/FASL promoter variants are considered in altering transcriptional activity of those genes and consequently alter regulation of cell death. However, no studies have investigated whether tumor sites contribute ...
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 ...
MicroRNA variants increase the risk of HPV-associated squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx in never smokers.
(PloS one, 2013-01)
Both microRNAs and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection play an important role in the development and progression of oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). In addition, microRNAs affect all facets of the immune/inflammation ...
Mouse double minute 4 variants modify susceptibility to risk of recurrence in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the oropharynx.
(Molecular carcinogenesis, 2018-03)
Given the crucial role of Mouse double minute 4 (MDM4) oncoprotein in p53 pathway, single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) could serve as such biomarkers for prediction of SCCOP recurrence. Thus, we investigated associations ...
Significance of microRNA-related variants in susceptibility to recurrence of oropharyngeal cancer patients after definitive radiotherapy.
Common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in miRNAs may affect miRNA functions and their target expression and thus may affect biological activities and cancer etiology as well as prognosis. Thus, we determined whether ...
Association of tumor necrosis factor-alpha promoter variants with risk of HPV-associated oral squamous cell carcinoma.
(Molecular cancer, 2013-07-19)
Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) plays an important role in inflammation, immunity, and defense against infection and clearance of human papillomavirus (HPV). Thus, genetic variants may modulate individual susceptibility ...
Genetic variation in MDM2 and p14ARF and susceptibility to salivary gland carcinoma.
(PloS one, 2012-01)
The p14(ARF)/MDM2/p53 pathway plays an important role in modulation of DNA damage and oxidative stress responses. The aim of this study was to determine whether genetic variants in MDM2 and p14(ARF) are associated with risk ...
