The role of genotype/phenotype at apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease Rs1130409 in renal cell carcinoma.

In this study, we aim at evaluation the role of the Asp148Glu (rs1130409) variant at apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease (APE) gene in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) risk and the contribution of different genotypes to its transcriptional mRNA levels. In the case-control study, 92 RCC patients and 580 cancer-free patients matched by age and gender were recruited. The apurinic/APE genotyping work was conducted with typical restriction fragment length polymorphism methodology after polymerase chain reaction. At the meanwhile, thirty renal tissue samples with variant genotypes were examined for their apurinic/APE mRNA and protein expressions by real-time quantitative reverse transcription method and Western blotting. The results showed that compared with the wild-type TT genotype, the people with TG and GG genotypes of apurinic/APE Asp148Glu had 0.88- and 1.09-fold risk of RCC, respectively. We have also examined the in vivo transcriptional (RNA) and translational (protein) levels with renal tissues of various apurinic/APE Asp148Glu genotypes, revealing that the apurinic/APE mRNA and protein were of similar levels among people of TT, TG, or GG genotypes. There was no joint gene-environment effect of apurinic/APE Asp148Glu genotype and smoking habit on RCC risk. The evidence indicated that apurinic/APE Asp148Glu genotypic variants did not alter its mRNA and protein expression among RCC patients. The genotype of apurinic/APE Asp148Glu may not serve as a proper predictive marker for RCC ...

Acute tissue injury causes DNA damage and repair processes involving increased cell mitosis and polyploidization, leading to cell function alterations that may potentially drive cancer development. Here, we show that acute kidney injury (AKI) increased the risk for papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) development and tumor relapse in humans as confirmed by data collected from several single-center and multicentric studies. Lineage tracing of tubular epithelial cells (TECs) after AKI induction and long-term follow-up in mice showed time-dependent onset of clonal papillary tumors in an adenoma-carcinoma sequence. Among AKI-...

This article aims to summarize the current literature on genetic alterations related to tumors of the genitourinary tract. Novel associations have recently been reported between specific DNA alterations and genitourinary malignancies. The most common cause of chromosome 3p loss in clear cell renal cell carcinoma is a chromothripsis event, which concurrently generates a chromosome 5q gain. Specific patterns of clear cell renal cell carcinoma metastatic evolution have been uncovered. The first therapy targeting a specific molecular alteration has now been approved for urothelial carcinoma. Germline mutations in DNA damage re...

In conclusion, our studies provided the functional evidence showing the deleterious effect of c.3251C>T, and non-deleterious effects of c.1054G>C and c.1057A>G. Using the ClinGen Pathogenicity calculator, c.3251C>T remains a VUS while c.1054G>C and c.1057A>G may be classified as likely benign variants.

io PR Abstract It is paramount to identify patients whose cancer is associated with genetic susceptibility to the disease, since their long-term management depends on it. Anatomical and molecular pathologists play a key role in the process. Indeed, their diagnosis supports or even sometimes warrants germline genetic testing. For example, a colorectal cancer with mismatch repair protein expression loss suggests Lynch syndrome, while a rare type of renal cell carcinoma with fumarate hydrate expression loss is highly evocative of hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma syndrome. Similarly, the presence of ...

Summary: Metabolic reprogramming is one of the major steps that tumor cells take during cancer progression. This process allows the cells to survive in a nutrient- and oxygen-deprived environment, to become stress tolerant, and to metastasize to different sites. Recent studies have shown that reprogramming happens in stromal cells and involves the cross-talk of the cancer cell/tumor microenvironment. There are similarities between the metabolic reprogramming that occurs in both noncancerous kidney diseases and renal cell carcinoma (RCC), suggesting that such reprogramming is a means by which renal epithelial cells survive ...

We examined the expression of mitogen ‐activated protein kinase 14 (MAPK14) and cell division cycle 25B (CDC25B) in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) and healthy tissue using the cancer genome atlas database and clinical samples. We affirm that our results reveal that phosphorylated MAPK14 (P‐MAPK14) and CDC25B are highly expr essed in ccRCC tissue, and that P‐MAPK14 binds to CDC25B, potentially stabilizing it. Additionally, MAPK14 knockdown inhibits the proliferation and migration of ccRCC cells, an effect that is partially reversed by CDC25B overexpression, suggesting that downregulation of MAPK14 and P‐MAP...

CONCLUSION: irPR features are consistent across tumor types and treatment settings. Standardized, pan-tumor immune-mediated pathologic response criteria (irPRC) are defined and associated specimen-handling considerations are described. Future, prospective studies are merited to validate irPRC in larger datasets and to associate pathologic features with long-term patient outcomes. PMID: 31672770 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Lynch Syndrome (LS) entails a defective DNA mismatch repair system, which is the post-replicative proofreading and editing system, ensuring our genome's integrity. LS predisposes to several cancers, most commonly colorectal and endometrial cancers. LS occurs in approximately 1 in 250 –1,000 people.LS is associated with urological malignancies with upper tract urothelial carcinoma the most common, although still clinically underestimated. Other urologic malignancies possibly associated with LS include bladder, prostate, testis, and renal cell carcinoma.
