Well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors of the lower urinary tract: biologic behavior of a rare entity.

Hum Pathol 2021 Mar 8;109:53-58. Epub 2020 Dec 8.

Department of Pathology, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD, 21287, USA; Department of Pathology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, 35233, USA. Electronic address:

The spectrum of neuroendocrine (NE) tumors in the genitourinary tract ranges from the aggressive large and small cell carcinomas to the often benign paraganglioma and well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor (WD-NET). At least 15 pure lower urinary tract (LUT) WD-NETs have been described. Owing to the rarity of WD-NET in the LUT and the limited number of reported cases, a better definition of their biologic long-term behavior is warranted. Read More

Pan-Cancer Multiomics Analysis of TC2N Gene Suggests its Important Role(s) in Tumourigenesis of Many Cancers.

Asian Pac J Cancer Prev 2020 Nov 1;21(11):3199-3209. Epub 2020 Nov 1.

Department of Pathology, Dow International Medical College, Dow University of Health Sciences Karachi, Pakistan.

Background: Role of TC2N in carcinogenesis has been largely unfathomed until recently when it was identified as a novel oncogene in lung cancer. Subsequently, a tumour suppressor role of TC2N was reported in breast cancer. It is therefore highly relevant to investigate TC2N molecular partners/mechanisms on a larger scale including a wider range of tumour types. Read More

Integrative omics analysis reveals relationships of genes with synthetic lethal interactions through a pan-cancer analysis.

Comput Struct Biotechnol J 2020 21;18:3243-3254. Epub 2020 Oct 21.

Jiangsu Key Laboratory for Molecular and Medical Biotechnology, School of Life Science, Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing 210023, China.

Synthetic lethality is thought to play an important role in anticancer therapies. Herein, to understand the potential distributions and relationships between synthetic lethal interactions between genes, especially for pairs deriving from different sources, we performed an integrative analysis of genes at multiple molecular levels. Based on inter-species phylogenetic conservation of synthetic lethal interactions, gene pairs from yeast and humans were analyzed; a total of 37,588 candidate gene pairs containing 7,816 genes were collected.

Rewired functional regulatory networks among miRNA isoforms (isomiRs) from let-7 and miR-10 gene families in cancer.

Comput Struct Biotechnol J 2020 13;18:1238-1248. Epub 2020 May 13.

Department of Bioinformatics, Smart Health Big Data Analysis and Location Services Engineering Lab of Jiangsu Province, School of Geographic and Biologic Information, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Nanjing, China.

Classical microRNA (miRNA) has been so far believed as a single sequence, but it indeed contains multiple miRNA isoforms (isomiR) with various sequences and expression patterns. It is not clear whether these diverse isomiRs have potential relationships and whether they contribute to miRNA:mRNA interactions. Here, we aimed to reveal the potential evolutionary and functional relationships of multiple isomiRs based on let-7 and miR-10 gene families that are prone to clustering together on chromosomes.

FDG Uptake in Brown Adipose Tissue Activated by a β3-Adrenergic Receptor Agonist Prescribed for Overactive Bladder.

Clin Nucl Med 2020 Aug;45(8):628-631

Diagnostic Radiology, Shiga General Hospital, Moriyama, Japan.

Brown adipose tissue (BAT), which produces energy and is known to play a role as a hibernating gland, is sometimes visualized on F-FDG PET in children or in slender young adults in a cold environment. Because BAT is activated by catecholamines, FDG uptake in BAT is also observed in patients with pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma. We present the case of an elderly woman with remarkable FDG uptake in BAT. Read More

The Diagnostic Dilemma of GATA3 Immunohistochemistry in Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma.

Endocr Pathol 2020 Jun;31(2):95-100

Department of Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Hypertension, National Hospital Organization, Kyoto Medical Center, Kyoto, Japan.

Although GATA3 has been recognized as a useful marker for mammary and urothelial carcinomas, there is large variation in GATA3 expression detected in pheochromocytoma (PC) and paraganglioma (PGL), from 90% to less than 5%. For GATA3 to be a useful diagnostic marker for PCCs/PGLs, the reasons for such discrepancy must be elucidated. Thus, we compared different immunohistochemistry protocols. Read More
