Comprehensive Analysis of the Expression and Prognosis for MCM4 in Uterine Corpus Endometrial Carcinoma.

Front Genet 2022 3;13:890591. Epub 2022 Jun 3.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, General Hospital of Northern Theater Command, Shenyang, China.

Mini chromosome maintenance protein 4 (MCM4) belongs to the family of mini chromosome maintenance proteins (MCMs) that plays a crucial role in DNA replication and cell cycle regulation. Given that MCM4 has been reported to be aberrantly expressed in a variety of tumor tissues, and is strongly associated with poor patient prognosis, it has rarely been reported in uterine corpus endometrial carcinoma (UCEC). We explored the role of MCM4 in UCEC through multi-omics analysis, including gene expression levels, survival prognosis, the biological function of interacting proteins, immune infiltration, and diagnostic value.

Molecular classification of endometrial carcinoma: a clinically oriented review.

J Clin Pathol 2022 May 30. Epub 2022 May 30.

Department of Pathology, Helsinki University Hospital and Research Program in Applied Tumor Genomics, Faculty of Medicine, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.

The Cancer Genome Atlas research network performed a genome-wide analysis of endometrial carcinomas in 2013 and classified tumours into four distinct subgroups: polymerase-ϵ ultramutated, microsatellite unstable hypermutated, copy-number low and copy-number high. These molecular alterations are mostly mutually exclusive as only about 3% of tumours exhibit more than one molecular signature. Apart from the polymerase-ϵ ultramutated subgroup, molecular classification can be reproduced by using surrogate markers. Read More
