Glioma is a highly fatal malignant tumor with a high recurrence rate, poor clinical treatment effect, and prognosis. We aimed to determine the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of NDRG1 and glioma risk and prognosis in the Chinese Han population. 5 candidate SNPs were genotyped by Agena MassARRAY in 558 cases and 503 controls; logistic regression was used to analyze the relationship between SNPs and glioma risk. We used multi-factor dimensionality reduction to analyze the interaction of 'SNP-SNP'; the prognosis analysis was performed by log-rank test, Kaplan-Meier analysis, and Cox regression model. Our results showed that the polymorphisms of rs3808599 was associated with the reduction of glioma risk in all participants (OR 0.41, p = 0.024) and the participants ≤ 40 years old (OR 0.30, p = 0.020). rs3802251 may reduce glioma risk in all participants (OR 0.79, p = 0.008), the male participants (OR 0.68, p = 0.033), and astrocytoma patients (OR 0.81, p = 0.023). rs3779941 was associated with poor glioma prognosis in all participants (HR = 2.59, p = 0.039) or astrocytoma patients (HR = 2.63, p = 0.038). We also found that the key factors for glioma prognosis may include surgical operation, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. This study is the first to find that NDRG1 gene polymorphisms may have a certain association with glioma risk or prognosis in the Chinese Han population.

Ninjurin 2 rs118050317 gene polymorphism and endometrial cancer risk.

Cancer Cell Int 2021 Jan 4;21(1). Epub 2021 Jan 4.

The National Engineering Research Centre for Miniaturized Detection Systems, College of Life Science, Northwest University, #229 North TaiBai Road, Xi'an, 710069, Shaanxi, China.

Background: Endometrial cancer is one of the most common female reproductive system tumors. Ninjurin2 (NINJ2) is a new adhesion factor. As a vascular susceptibility gene, it is highly expressed in other cancers and promotes the growth of cancer cells. We conducted an association analysis between NINJ2 gene polymorphism and endometrial cancer risk.

Methods: Five SNPs rs118050317, rs75750647, rs7307242, rs10849390 and rs11610368 of NINJ2 gene were genotyped in 351 endometrial cancer patients and 344 healthy controls. The clinical index difference between cases and controls were tested by one-way analysis of variance. The allele and genotype frequency of cases and controls were been compared by Chi square test. The odds ratios (OR) with 95% confidence interval (95% CI) were examined by logistic regression analysis.

Results: The SNP rs118050317 mutant allele C and homozygote CC genotype were significant increased the endometrial cancer risk (OR 1.46, 95% CI 1.04-2.06, p = 0.028; OR 8.43, 95% CI 1.05-67.89, p = 0.045). In the clinical index analysis, there were significant higher quantities of CEA, CA125 and AFP in cases serum than controls.

Conclusion: The NINJ2 gene polymorphism loci rs118050317 mutant allele C was associated with an increased risk of endometrial cancer. CEA, CA125 and AFP quantities were significant higher in endometrial cancer patients.

Ku80 gene knockdown by the CRISPR/Cas9 technique affects the biological functions of human thyroid carcinoma cells.

Oncol Rep 2019 Dec 1;42(6):2486-2498. Epub 2019 Oct 1.

Department of Pathology, Xi'an No. 3 Hospital, The Affiliated Hospital of Northwest University, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710018, P.R. China.

In the present study, to evaluate the role of Ku80 in thyroid carcinoma (TC), 86 thyroid tissue samples from patients with a spectrum of thyroid disorders were examined for protein levels of Ku80, nuclear factor‑κB (NF‑κB) and RET/TC by immunohistochemistry. Furthermore, in TC cells, Ku80 mRNA was detected by reverse transcription‑quantitative PCR analysis and silenced using the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR‑associated protein 9 (Cas9) technique to assess its role. An antibody array was used to identify Ku80‑related regulatory genes. The protein levels of Ku80 in the TC tissues were significantly higher than those in non‑neoplastic adjacent tissue samples (P<0.01). The activation of NF‑kB and expression of RET/TC in the TC group were significantly increased (P<0.05) and were correlated with the protein expression of Ku80 (P<0.05). In papillary TC cells, the mRNA levels of Ku80 were high; Ku80 knockdown resulted in reductions in proliferation, invasion and colony formation, increased apoptosis, and reduced levels of proteins involved in MAPK signaling, cell proliferation and apoptosis. The high expression of Ku80 in TC was found to be associated with the expression of RET/TC and activation of NF‑κB, and Ku80 knockdown decreased the malignancy of TC cells.

Downregulation of survivin inhibits proliferation and migration of human gastric carcinoma cells.

Int J Clin Exp Pathol 2015 1;8(2):1731-6. Epub 2015 Feb 1.

Department of Pathology, The Affiliated Hospital, Xi'an Medical University Xi'an, China.

Gastric cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Survivin overexpressed in many human cancers as a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis protein family. We found that all samples of normal gastric tissues did not express the protein of survivin, and however, 65% human gastric cancer samples expressed survivin. Positive expression of survivin correlated with differentiation. The proliferation and migration of gastric cancer decreased after downregulation of surviving by RNA interference. Furthermore, downregulation of survivin caused the cell cycle arrest. These suggest that survivin play an important role in gastric cancer and the use of survivin siRNA might become an effective approach to cancer therapy.
