High-resolution copy number and gene expression microarray analyses of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma cell lines of tongue and larynx.
Helsinki, Finland. In Genes Chromosomes Cancer, 2008
We identified a number of altered regions including nine high-level amplifications such as 6q12-q14 (CD109, MYO6), 9p24 (JAK2, CD274, SLC1A1, RLN1), 11p12-p13 (TRAF6, COMMD9, TRIM44, FJX1, CD44, PDHX, APIP), 11q13 (FADD, PPFIA1, CTTN), and 14q24 (ABCD4, HBLD1, LTBP2, ZNF410, COQ6, ACYP1, JDP2) where 9% to 64% of genes showed overexpression.
Rare amplicons implicate frequent deregulation of cell fate specification pathways in oral squamous cell carcinoma.
San Francisco, United States. In Oncogene, 2005
We found genes involved in integrin signaling (TLN1), survival (YAP1, BIRC2), and adhesion and migration (TLN1, LAMA3, MMP7), as well as members of the hedgehog (GLI2) and notch (JAG1, RBPSUH, FJX1) pathways to be amplified and overexpressed.
