Unique Glycoform-Dependent Monoclonal Antibodies for Mouse Mucin 21.

Int J Mol Sci 2022 Jun 16;23(12). Epub 2022 Jun 16.

Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Molecular Immunology, Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-0033, Japan.

Mucin 21(Muc21)/epiglycanin is expressed on apical surfaces of squamous epithelia and has potentially protective roles, which are thought to be associated with its unique glycoforms, whereas its aberrant glycosylation is implicated in the malignant behaviors of some carcinomas. Despite the importance of glycoforms, we lack tools to detect specific glycoforms of mouse Muc21. In this study, we generated two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that recognize different glycoforms of Muc21. Read More

A Laboratory-Friendly CTC Identification: Comparable Double-Immunocytochemistry with Triple-Immunofluorescence.

Cancers (Basel) 2022 Jun 10;14(12). Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Translational Oncology Laboratory, Avera Research Institute, Sioux Falls, SD 57105, USA.

The source of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in the peripheral blood of patients with solid tumors are from primary cancer, metastatic sites, and a disseminated tumor cell pool. As 90% of cancer-related deaths are caused by metastatic progression and/or resistance-associated treatment failure, the above fact justifies the undeniable predictive and prognostic value of identifying CTC in the bloodstream at stages of the disease progression and resistance to treatment. Yet enumeration of CTC remains far from a standard routine procedure either for post-surgery follow-ups or ongoing adjuvant therapy. Read More

Bioengineered 2022 Jun;13(6):14107-14117

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, West China Second University Hospital, Sichuan University, Chengdu, Sichuan, China.

The role of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) is being actively explored in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Recent research has shown that long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) X-inactive Specific Transcript (XIST) is overexpressed in patients with PCOS and is associated with poor pregnancy outcomes. However, the precise function and mechanism of action of lncRNA XIST in PCOS are unknown. Read More

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Phenotype D Versus Functional Hypothalamic Amenorrhea With Polycystic Ovarian Morphology: A Retrospective Study About a Frequent Differential Diagnosis.

Front Endocrinol (Lausanne) 2022 2;13:904706. Epub 2022 Jun 2.

Clinical Division of Gynecological Endocrinology and Reproductive Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

The two most frequent causes of secondary amenorrhea are polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and functional hypothalamic amenorrhea (FHA). Despite several studies showing differences in hormonal profile between these groups, the differential diagnosis remains challenging, in particular between FHA women with polycystic ovarian morphology (FHA-PCOM) and PCOS patients without hyperandrogenism (phenotype D, PCOS-D). In a retrospective case-control study, 58 clearly defined patients with FHA-PCOM were compared to 58 PCOS-D patients, matched 1:1 for age and BMI. Read More

Neuroendocrine Neoplasia of the Female Genital Tract.

Surg Pathol Clin 2022 Jun 18;15(2):407-420. Epub 2022 May 18.

Department of Cellular Pathology, Birmingham Women's Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Neuroendocrine neoplasia is relatively uncommon in the female genital tract (FGT) and occurs at any site, most often the ovary and cervix. A unified dichotomous nomenclature, introduced by the World Health Organization Classification of Tumors in all fifth edition volumes, divides neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) into well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs). The term carcinoid tumor is retained in the ovary and represents the commonest FGT NEN. Read More

The role of insulin-like growth factor 2 mRNA binding proteins in female reproductive pathophysiology.

Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2022 Jun 15;20(1):89. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai, 200011, People's Republic of China.

Insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) mRNA binding proteins (IMPs) family belongs to a highly conserved family of RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) and is responsible for regulating RNA processing including localization, translation and stability. Mammalian IMPs (IMP1-3) take part in development, metabolism and tumorigenesis, where they are believed to play a major role in cell growth, metabolism, migration and invasion. IMPs have been identified that are expressed in ovary, placenta and embryo. Read More

Virchows Arch 2022 Jun 14. Epub 2022 Jun 14.

Department of Gynecology, National Cancer Center Hospital, 5-1-1 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, 104-0045, Japan.

Microcystic stromal tumors (MCSTs) of the ovary are rare sex cord-stromal tumors that are considered benign neoplasms because almost all cases display unilateral, localized lesions and have benign outcomes, except for one recurrent case with familial adenomatous polyposis and another initial metastatic case with a CTNNB1 mutation. We report herein a sporadic case that relapsed as intra-abdominal spread 9 years and 1 month after primary left salpingo-oophorectomy for torsion of the ovarian tumor pedicle. The tumor relapsed as multiple disseminations at the subabdominal wall, Douglas pouch, and omentum. Read More
