Preferential expression of cancer/testis genes in cancer stem-like cells: proposal of a novel sub-category, cancer/testis/stem gene.
Sapporo, Japan. In Tissue Antigens, 2013
Eighteen genes (MAGEA2, MAGEA3, MAGEA4, MAGEA6, MAGEA12, MAGEB2, GAGE1, GAGE8, SPANXA1, SPANXB1, SPANXC, XAGE2, SPA17, BORIS, PLU-1, SGY-1, TEX15 and CT45A1) showed higher expression levels in SP cells than in MP cells, whereas 10 genes (BAGE1, BAGE2, BAGE4, BAGE5, XAGE1, LIP1, D40, HCA661, TDRD1 and TPTE) showed similar expression levels in SP cells and MP cells.
Potential role for PAD2 in gene regulation in breast cancer cells.
Laramie, United States. In Plos One, 2011
Further, ChIP analysis of two of the most highly up- and down-regulated genes (PTN and MAGEA12, respectively) found that PAD2 binds directly to these gene promoters and that the likely mechanism by which PAD2 regulates expression of these genes is via citrullination of arginine residues 2-8-17 on histone H3 tails.
Prognostic impact of cancer/testis antigen expression in advanced stage multiple myeloma patients.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Cancer Immun, 2007
The expression of MAGEA1, MAGEA2, MAGEA3/6, MAGEA4, MAGEA10, MAGEA12, BAGE1, MAGEC1/CT7, the GAGE family, LAGE-1, PRAME, NY-ESO-1, SPA17 and SSX1 was studied by RT-PCR in 15 normal tissues, a pool of 10 normal bone marrow samples, 3 normal tonsils and bone marrow aspirates from 6 normal donors, 3 monoclonal gammopathies of undetermined significance (MGUS), 5 solitary plasmacytomas, 39 MM samples (95% advanced stage) and the MM cell line U266.
Expression of cancer testis antigens in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas.
Ribeirão Preto, Brazil. In Head Neck, 2006
METHODS: On this basis, we evaluated by semiquantitative reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) the expression of genes that code for tumor antigens (melanoma antigen-1 [MAGE-1], MAGE-4, MAGE-10, MAGE-12, B melanoma antigen, CTL-recognized antigen melanoma antigen (CT antigen 2) [LAGE], New York esophageal squamous cell carcinoma antigen (CT antigen 1) [NYESO-1], and preferentially expressed antigen of melanoma [PRAME]) in surgical samples of the tumors, margins, and lymph nodes (when present) from patients with a diagnosis of head and neck carcinoma.
Overexpression of MAGE/GAGE genes in paclitaxel/doxorubicin-resistant human cancer cell lines.
Boston, United States. In Clin Cancer Res, 2003
Northern analysis demonstrates overexpression of MAGE2 but not Centrin 2. Extension of this analysis to other neighboring and non-neighboring representative cancer testis antigens reveals overexpression of MAGE3, MAGE6, MAGE11, and MAGE12, as well as GAGE-2, GAGE-4, GAGE-5, GAGE-6, and GAGE-7 (clustered on Xp11) in SKOV-3(TR), as compared with SKOV-3.
Cloning and analysis of MAGE-1-related genes.
Moldova. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 1994
We have isolated five full-length cDNAs from DM150 which were identified as MAGE-1, MAGE-3, MAGE-12 and two previously undescribed MAGE genes, MAGE-3b and MAGE-X2.
