MDM2 Promoter SNP344T>A (rs1196333) Status Does Not Affect Cancer Risk
(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 ...
Associations between tamoxifen, estrogens, and FSH serum levels during steady state tamoxifen treatment of postmenopausal women with breast cancer
(BioMed Central, 2010-06-21)
Background The cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes 2C19, 2D6, and 3A5 are responsible for converting the selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), tamoxifen to its active metabolites 4-hydroxy-tamoxifen (4OHtam) and ...
AIDS-related primary central nervous system lymphoma: a Norwegian national survey 1989–2003
(BioMed Central, 2008-08-06)
Background: Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a frequent complication in acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The objective of this survey was to investigate incidence, clinical features, radiological ...
CHEK2 Mutations Affecting Kinase Activity Together With Mutations in TP53 Indicate a Functional Pathway Associated with Resistance to Epirubicin in Primary Breast Cancer
(Public Library of Science, 2008-08-26)
Background: Chemoresistance is the main obstacle to cure in most malignant diseases. Anthracyclines are among the main drugs used for breast cancer therapy and in many other malignant conditions. Single parameter analysis ...
Expression of full-length p53 and its isoform Δp53 in breast carcinomas in relation to mutation status and clinical parameters
(BioMed Central, 2006-10-20)
Background: The tumor suppressor gene p53 (TP53) controls numerous signaling pathways and is frequently mutated in human cancers. Novel p53 isoforms suggest alternative splicing as a regulatory feature of p53 ...
Adjuvant treatment: the contribution of expression microarrays
(BioMed Central, 2007-12-20)
Multilocus analysis of SNP and metabolic data within a given pathway
(BioMed Central, 2006-01-13)
Background: Complex traits, which are under the influence of multiple and possibly interacting genes, have become a subject of new statistical methodological research. One of the greatest challenges facing human geneticists ...
Low expression levels of ATM may substitute for CHEK2 / TP53 mutations predicting resistance towards anthracycline and mitomycin chemotherapy in breast cancer
(BioMed Central, 2012-03-15)
Introduction: Mutations affecting p53 or its upstream activator Chk2 are associated with resistance to DNAdamaging chemotherapy in breast cancer. ATM (Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated protein) is the key activator of p53 and ...
