    Somatic mutations affecting the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) have been frequently observed in human cancers and proposed as important oncological biomarkers. However, the clinical significance of mtDNA mutations in cancer remains unclear. This study was therefore performed to explore the possible...

    High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) is the most aggressive histological type of epithelial ovarian cancer, which is characterized by a high frequency of somatic TP53 mutations. We performed exome analyses of tumors and matched normal tissues of 34 Japanese patients with HGSOC and observed a...

    Increased numbers of mitochondria in differentiated thyroid cancer and, most strikingly, mutations in human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in older people have led to speculation that mtDNA mutations might contribute to aging or accumulate in postmitotic tissues with age. Mutation analyses of mtDNA...

    The occurrence of heteroplasmy and mixtures is technically challenging for the analysis of mitochondrial DNA. More than that, observed mutations need to be carefully interpreted in the light of the phylogeny as mitochondrial DNA is a uniparental marker reflecting human evolution. Earlier...

    Background: An increasing body of evidence shows that miR-34 family has tumor suppressive properties mediating apoptosis, cell cycle arrest and senescence. In ovarian cancer, miR34 family members were found to be under expressed. Particularly miR-34a has been revealed to be a direct...
