(Public Library of Science, 2013-02-05)
    Chromosome 8q24 is the most commonly amplified region across multiple cancer types, and the typical length of the amplification suggests that it may target additional genes to MYC. To explore the roles of the genes most ...

  • KRAS gene amplification and overexpression but not mutation associates with aggressive and metastatic endometrial cancer 

    Birkeland, Even; Wik, Elisabeth; Mjøs, Siv; Høivik, Erling Andre; Trovik, Jone; Werner, Henrica Maria Johanna; Kusonmano, Kanthida; Petersen, Kjell; Ræder, Maria B.; Holst, Frederik; Øyan, Anne Margrete; Kalland, Karl-Henning; Akslen, Lars A.; Simon, Ronald; Krakstad, Camilla; Salvesen, Helga B. (Cancer Research UK and Nature Publishing Group, 2012)
    BACKGROUND: Three quarter of endometrial carcinomas are treated at early stage. Still, 15 to 20% of these patients experience recurrence, with little effect from systemic therapies. Homo sapiens v-Ki-ras2 Kirsten rat ...

  • MDM2 Promoter SNP344T>A (rs1196333) Status Does Not Affect Cancer Risk 

    Knappskog, Stian; Gansmo, Liv B.; Romundstad, Pål; Bjørnslett, Merete; Trovik, Jone; Lønning, Per Eystein; Salvesen, Helga B. (Public Library of Science, 2012-04-30)
    The MDM2 proto-oncogene plays a key role in central cellular processes like growth control and apoptosis, and the gene locus is frequently amplified in sarcomas. Two polymorphisms located in the MDM2 promoter P2 have been ...
