    A novel protein expression signature differentiates benign lipomas from well-differentiated liposarcomas.
    Mol Clin Oncol 2017 Sep 13;7(3):315-321. Epub 2017 Jul 13.
    Department of Biomedical Sciences, Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, El Paso, TX 79905, USA.
    Benign lipomas and well-differentiated liposarcomas share many histological and molecular features. Due to their similarities, patients with these lipomatous tumors are misdiagnosed up to 40% of the time following radiological detection, up to 17% of the time following histological examination, and in as many as 15% of cases following fluorescent in situ hybridization for chromosomal anomalies. Incorrect classification of these two tumor types leads to increased costs to the patient and delayed accurate diagnoses. Read More

    Epigenetic silencing of LPP/miR-28 in multiple myeloma.
    J Clin Pathol 2017 Aug 3. Epub 2017 Aug 3.
    Department of Medicine, Queen Mary Hospital, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China.
    Aims: miR-28-5- is a tumour suppressor microRNA implicated in cancers. As a CpG island is absent in miR-28-5- but present in its host gene, LPP (LIM domain containing preferred translocation partner in lipoma), we hypothesized that miR-28-5p is epigenetically silenced by promoter DNA methylation of its host gene in multiple myeloma.

    Methods: Methylation-specific PCR, verified by quantitative bisulfite pyrosequencing, was employed to study methylation of LPP/miR-28 in healthy controls (n=10), human myeloma cell lines (HMCLs) (n=15), and primary myeloma marrow samples at diagnosis (n=49) and at relapse (n=18). Read More

    Loss of the tumor suppressor gene AIP mediates the browning of human brown fat tumors.
    J Pathol 2017 Jul 19. Epub 2017 Jul 19.
    Division of Clinical Genetics, Department of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University, Lund, Sweden.
    Human brown fat tumors (hibernomas) display concomitant loss of the tumor suppressor genes MEN1 and AIP. In the present study, we hypothesized that the brown fat phenotype is attributed to these mutations. Accordingly, we demonstrate that silencing of AIP in human brown preadipocytic and white fat cell lines results in the induction of the brown fat marker UCP1. Read More
