Potential role of TET2 in gastric cancer cisplatin resistance

Publication date: Available online 16 September 2019Source: Pathology - Research and PracticeAuthor(s): Kun Zhou, Huan Guo, Jun Zhang, Dongmei Zhao, Yuzhen Zhou, Zunrong Zheng, Yuhong Xu, Yanli Li, Donghua WangAbstractGastric cancer (GC) represents one of the most predominant malignancies with high incidence and mortality rates. Although traditional chemotherapeutics, including cisplatin are effective in the treatment of GC, patients often develop drug resistance in clinic. The present study aimed to explore the underlying mechanism of cisplatin-induced drug resistance in GC. The potential role of DNA demethylase ten-eleven translocation-2 (TET2) in modulating cisplatin resistance of GC cells was investigated. It was observed that TET2 was significantly decreased in cisplatin resistance SGC7901/DDP cells compared with non-resistant cells and TET2 overexpression markedly reduced the tolerance to cisplatin. Additionally, evidence was provided that TET2 regulated interleukin-6 levels in the tumor microenvironment through histone acetylation and therefore served an important role in the development of cisplatin resistance in GC cells. Taken together, the results suggested that TET2-mediated cisplatin resistance may represent a novel mechanism of drug resistance in GC cells and may offer novel treatment approaches.

Malignant gastrointestinal neuroectodermal tumour is an extremely rare neoplasm that arises in the wall of the small bowel, stomach or large bowel in young-aged and middle-aged adults. Histologically, it is generally characterized by monomorphic cells with clear cytoplasma, S-100 protein expression, and EWSR1 gene translocation. To the best of our knowledge, we describe for the first time, the case of a young woman with a diagnosis of metastatic gastrointestinal neuroectodermal tumour arising from ileum, who had a childhood adrenal neuroblastoma with liver, bone and lymph nodes metastasis, treated with four cycles of chemo...

Tegtmeyer The gastric pathogen and carcinogen Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) encodes a type IV secretion system for translocation of the effector protein CagA into host cells. Injected CagA becomes tyrosine-phosphorylated at the five amino acid residue Glutamate-Proline- Isoleucine-Tyrosine-Alanine (EPIYA)-sequence motifs. These phosphorylated EPIYA-sites represent recognition motifs for binding of multiple host factors, which then manipulate signaling pathways to trigger gastric disease. Thus, efficient detection of single phosphorylated EPIYA-motifs in CagA is required. Detection of phospho-CagA is primarily perfo...

Conclusion: Our results showed that PVT1 can inhibit the apoptosis and enhance the 5-Fu resistance of gastric cancer through the activation of Bcl2. PVT1 has the potential to serve as an indicator to predict 5-Fu treatment resistance. PMID: 31205469 [PubMed]

Conclusions: Primary carcinoma with plasmacytoid morphology is a dedifferentiated variant of adenocarcinoma or poorly cohesive carcinomas. Vimentin positive dedifferentiated-poorly cohesive carcinomas should be considered as mesenchymal-type highly malignant carcinomas. This rare histologic variant of gastrointestinal cancer might respond to anti-c-MET tyrosine kinases. PMID: 31205468 [PubMed]

Chaetocin, a natural product extracted from Chaetomium species, possesses anticancer effects in several kinds of tumors. However, it remains unclear whether the potential indication for chaetocin could also include human gastric cancer. We found here that chaetocin induced caspase-dependent and -independent apoptosis in human gastric cancer cell lines, which greatly depended on BID-mediated AIF translocation. Despite not increasing the intercellular ROS levels in gastric cancer cells, chaetocin did cause a reduction in mitochondrial membrane potential probably through its regulation on the expression of Bcl-2 and BAX. Chae...

Gastric cancer is one of the top five malignant tumors worldwide. At present, the molecular mechanisms of gastric cancer progression are still not completely clear. Cytoplasmic dynein regulates intracellular transport and mitotic spindle localization, and its abnormal function is crucial for tumorigenesis, promotes tumor cell cycle progression, and tumor migration. DYNC1I1 is an important binding subunit of cytoplasmic dynein.However, studies on DYNC1I1 in tumors are currently limited. In the current study, we found that high DYNC1I1 expression in gastric cancer is associated with poor prognosis and is an independent progn...
