In silico analysis of deleterious SNPs of human MTUS1 gene and their impacts on subsequent protein structure and function.

PLoS One 2021 14;16(6):e0252932. Epub 2021 Jun 14.

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The mitochondrial tumor suppressor 1 (MTUS1) gene acts as a crucial tumor suppressor by inhibiting growth and proliferation of eukaryotic cells including tumor cell lines. Down regulation of MTUS1 gene has been implicated in a wide range of cancers as well as various human diseases. Alteration through nsSNPs can potentially damage the structure and/or function of the protein. Read More

Am J Surg Pathol 2021 Jun 10. Epub 2021 Jun 10.

Departments of Pathology Oncology Gastroenterology of the Affiliated Changzhou Second People's Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Changzhou Department of Pathology of the First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University, Suzhou, China Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of Veterans Affairs Boston Healthcare System, Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital, MA.

Papillary early gastric carcinoma (EGC) is believed to have a low risk of lymph node metastasis (LNM) and thus can be resected endoscopically. We observed anecdotally that some papillary EGC tumors showed conspicuous high-grade dysplastic features, but the significance of these observations is unknown. In this bicenter study we investigated papillary EGCs that were divided into high-grade (n=96) and low-grade (n=118) groups among 1136 consecutive EGC radical resection cases. Read More

J Cancer 2021 19;12(14):4362-4371. Epub 2021 May 19.

Department of General Surgery, Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University, Jiefang Road 238, Wuhan, Hubei 430060, China.

A deep and comprehensive understanding of factors that contribute to cancer initiation, progression, and evolution is of essential importance. Among them, the serine/threonine and tyrosine kinase-like kinases, also known as receptor interacting proteins (RIPs) or receptor interacting protein kinases (RIPKs), is emerging as important tumor-related proteins due to its complex regulation of cell survival, apoptosis, and necrosis. In this review, we mainly review the relevance of RIP to various malignant digestive neoplasms, including esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, gallbladder cancer, cholangiocarcinoma, and pancreatic cancer.

Major modifications to minimize thoracic esophago-gastric leak and eradicate esophageal stricture after Ivor Lewis esophagectomy.

J Surg Oncol 2021 Jun 3. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Mount Sinai Health System, New York, New York, USA.
