Am J Case Rep 2021 Apr 22;22:e928670. Epub 2021 Apr 22.

School of Dentistry, Federal University of Pará (UFPA), Belém, PA, Brazil.

BACKGROUND Nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), also known as Gorlin-Goltz syndrome (GGS), is an inherited autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in the patched (PTCH) tumor-suppressor gene, which has high penetrance and variable phenotypic expressivity. In 1960, Gorlin and Goltz defined the condition by 3 main characteristics: multiple basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic keratocyst (OKC), and skeletal anomalies. Nowadays, many neurologic, ophthalmic, endocrine, and genital manifestations are known to be associated with this syndrome. Read More

Department of Pathology, Texas Childrens Hospital, 6621 Fannin St, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Cancer predisposition syndromes (CPS) are generally heritable conditions that predispose individuals to develop cancer at a higher rate and younger age than their representative general population. They are a significant cause of cancer related morbidity and mortality in the pediatric population. Therefore, recognition of lesions that may be associated with a CPS and alerting the clinicians to its implications is a crucial task for a diagnostic pathologist. Read More

ATF-3 expression inhibits melanoma growth by downregulating ERK and AKT pathways.

Lab Invest 2021 May 9;101(5):636-647. Epub 2020 Dec 9.

Department of Pathology, Program in Dermatopathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.

Activating transcription factor 3 (ATF-3), a cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor, has been shown to play a regulatory role in melanoma, although its function during tumor progression remains unclear. Here, we demonstrate that ATF-3 exhibits tumor suppressive function in melanoma. Specifically, ATF-3 nuclear expression was significantly diminished with melanoma progression from nevi to primary to metastatic patient melanomas, correlating low expression with poor prognosis.
