    Background: Genomic instability with frequent DNA copy number alterations is one of the key hallmarks of carcinogenesis. The chromosomal regions with frequent DNA copy number gain and loss in human gastric cancer are still poorly defined. It remains unknown how the DNA copy number variations...

    The conditioned fear learning and memory occurs when a neutral conditioned stimulus (CS) is paired with an aversive unconditioned stimulus (US). This process is critically dependent on the amygdala and inevitably involves blood pressure (BP) alterations. We hypothesized that BP variations could...

    Although changes in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number in peripheral blood leukocytes (PBLs) have been linked to increased susceptibility to several cancers, the relationship between the mtDNA copy number in PBLs and the risk of cancer precursors has not been investigated. In this study,...

VAN DE VELDE, CORNELIS J.; MEIJER, GERRIT A. // Oncologist;May2012, Vol. 17 Issue 5, following p653 

    Purpose. To improve the clinical outcome of patients with gastric cancer, intensified combination strategies are currently in clinical development, including combinations of more extensive surgery, (neo)adjuvant chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. The present study used DNA copy number profiling to...

  • Tumour-amplified kinase BTAK is amplified and overexpressed in gastric cancers with possible involvement in aneuploid formation. Sakakura, C; Hagiwara, A; Yasuoka, R; Fujita, Y; Nakanishi, M; Masuda, K; Shimomura, K; Nakamura, Y; Inazawa, J; Abe, T; Yamagishi, H // British Journal of Cancer;3/15/2001, Vol. 84 Issue 6, p824 

    Our recent analysis of gastric cancers using comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) revealed a novel high frequent copy number increase in the long arm of chromosome 20. Tumour-amplified kinase BTAK was recently cloned from breast cancers and mapped on 20q13 as a target gene for this...

    An alteration in the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number has been detected in numerous human cancers. However, certain changes in the mtDNA copy number that occur during the initiation and progression of gastric cancer remain undetected. In the present study, using quantitative PCR analysis,...

  • Small bowel adenocarcinoma copy number profiles are more closely related to colorectal than to gastric cancers. Haan, J. C.; Buffart, T. E.; Eijk, P. P.; van de Wiel, M. A.; van Wieringen, W. N.; Howdle, P. D.; Mulder, C. J. J.; van de Velde, C. J.; Quirke, P.; Nagtegaal, I. D.; van Grieken, N. C. T.; Grabsch, H.; Meijer, G. A.; Ylstra, B. // Annals of Oncology;Feb2012, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p367 

    Background: Small bowel adenocarcinoma (SBA) is a rare cancer and consequently, the options for clinical trials are limited. As they are treated according to either a colorectal or a gastric cancer regimen and the molecular biology of a tumor is a pivotal determinant for therapy response,...

  • High-level copy number gains of established and potential drug target genes in gastric cancer as a lead for treatment development and selection. Labots, Mariette; Buffart, Tineke; Haan, Josien; Grieken, Nicole; Tijssen, Marianne; Velde, Cornelis; Grabsch, Heike; Ylstra, Bauke; Carvalho, Beatriz; Fijneman, Remond; Verheul, Henk; Meijer, Gerrit // Cellular Oncology (2211-3428);Feb2014, Vol. 37 Issue 1, p41 

    Purpose: The overall survival rate of patients with advanced gastric cancer is poor. Therefore, there is an urgent need for new treatment options for these patients. The identification of drug target genes located on DNA regions exhibiting high-level copy number gains (CNG) may be an effective...

    Background: To elucidate gene expression associated with copy number changes, we performed a genome-wide copy number and expression microarray analysis of 25 pairs of gastric tissues. Methods: We applied laser capture microdissection (LCM) to obtain samples for microarray experiments and...

  • Variable copy number of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) predicts worse prognosis in advanced gastric cancer patients. Ganjun Zhang; Yiqing Qu; Siwen Dang; Qi Yang; Bingyin Shi; Peng Hou // Diagnostic Pathology;2013, Vol. 8 Issue 1, p1 

    Background Change of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number is widely reported in various human cancers, including gastric cancer, and is considered to be an important hallmark of cancers. However, there is remarkably little consensus on the value of variable mtDNA content in the prognostic...
