    Författare :Karolina Holm; Bröstca-genetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Breast cancer; PIK3CA; PTEN; PI3K pathway; CCND1; microarrays; molecular subtypes; DNA methylation; EZH2; H3K27me3; PRC2; histone modification;

    Sammanfattning : Breast tumours harbour a large amount of genetic and epigenetic alterations, which are associated with e.g. tumour aggressiveness, prognosis, and response to therapy. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Molecular Genetic Alterations In Endometrial And Ovarian Cancers

    Författare :Anjila Koul; Bröstca-genetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; KRAS; PTEN; TP53; Overexpression; Mutation; Microsatellite instability; Complex atypical hyperplasia; Endometrial cancer; Ovarian cancer; cancer; onkologi; Cytologi; cancerology; oncology; Cytology; CNS metastasis; Cytogenetic analysis; BRCA2; BRCA1; B-catenin; CDKN2A;

    Sammanfattning : Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological cancer diagnosed in western countries. Complex atypical hyperplasia (CAH) reflects a state of hyperestrinism and its role as a precursor lesion of this cancer is established. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Insulin-like Growth Factor System: functional role and regulation in carcinomas

    Författare :Ann Rosendahl; Bröstca-genetik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancerology; oncology; Cytology; PTEN; Transforming Growth Factor-beta; Insulin-like Growth Factor; Renal Cell Carcinoma; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; diabetologi;

    Sammanfattning : The insulin-like growth factor (IGF) system demonstrates numerous actions during neoplastic growth and is therefore an interesting target with potential clinical implications. While numerous studies have established important roles of the IGF system in regulating cellular growth and survival of several tumor forms, very limited reports exist regarding its role in renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

  4. 4. Signalling pathways in renal cell carcinoma with a focus on telomerase regulation

    Författare :Raviprakash Tumkur Sitaram; Göran Roos; Anders Bjartell; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Renal cell carcinoma; DJ-1; NBS1; PTEN; WT1; cMyc; hTERT; telomerase; Pathology; Patologi; patologi; Pathology;

    Sammanfattning : Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein complex that catalyses telomeric repeat addition at the ends of chromosomes. The catalytic subunit, hTERT, acts as a key determinant for telomerase activity control; the induction of hTERT expression is required for telomerase activity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Protein kinases and phosphatases in B-cell lymphoma

    Författare :Marie Fridberg; Tumörmikromiljö; []
    Nyckelord :HePTP; PTEN; PKC-beta 2; B-cell; lymphoma; kinases; ZAP70; phosphatase; SHP2;

    Sammanfattning : Around 2000 persons are diagnosed with lymphoma in Sweden each year. There are many subgroups described for this form of cancer and the great majority is derived from B-cells. The most common subgroup is Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), a highly aggressive disease where only half of the patients are cured. LÄS MER
