OBJECTIVE: Epithelium-specific ETS protein 3 (Ese-3) is a member of the ETS family that is associated with tumor progression. However, there is little knowledge about Ese-3 in skin cancer. This study was conducted to explore the effects of Ese-3 on clinical prognosis in skin cancer and the functions of HaCaT cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Gene expression and clinical data were collected from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), The Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx), and three GSE datasets (GSE15605, GSE46517, and GSE114445). Comparison of data between groups was performed by Student's t-test and chi square test. Survival analysis was performed using log-rank test. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed using Cox proportional hazards models. Enrichment analysis was used to predict Ese-3 related functions. Cell proliferation assays, colony formation assays, and flow cytometry were used to assess cell proliferation, while Transwell assays analyzed cell migration and invasion. RESULTS: Compared with normal tissues, the Ese-3 mRNA in cutaneous malignant melanoma (CMM) patients was downregulated (P<0.0001). Ese-3 mRNA was associated with the T stage (χ 2=10.015, P=0.018), clinical stage (χ 2=4.122, P=0.042), and prognosis in CMM patients (P=0.0219) and was an independent prognostic predictor in CMM (HR=1.878, P=0.048). Enrichment analysis showed that differentially expressed proteins were associated with "protein kinase B (AKT) binding." CONCLUSION: Ese-3 inhibited the proliferation, migration, and invasion of HaCaT cells by downregulating PSIP1 and NUCKS1 expression levels to inactivate the phosphorylation of AKT.

The solute carrier 30 (SLC30) family genes play a fundamental role in various cancers. However, the diverse expression patterns, prognostic value, and potential mechanism of SLC30A family genes in gastric cancer (GC) remain unknown. Herein, we analyzed the expression and survival data of SLC30A family genes in GC patients using multiple bioinformatic approaches. Expression data of SLC30A family genes for GC patients were extracted from the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and genetic alteration frequency assessed by using cBioportal database. And validated the expression of SLC30A family genes in GC tissues and corresponding normal tissues. The prognostic value of SLC30A family genes in gastric cancer patients were explored using Kaplan-Meier plotter database. Functional enrichment analysis performed using DAVID database and clusterProfiler package. And ssGSEA algorithm was performed to explore the relationship between the SLC30A family genes and the infiltration of immune cells. We found that the median expression levels of SLC30A1-3, 5-7, and 9 were significantly upregulated in gastric cancer tissues compared to non-cancerous tissues, while SLC30A4 was downregulated. Meanwhile, SLC30A1-7, and 9 were significantly correlated with advanced tumor stage and nodal metastasis status, SLC30A5-7, and 9-10 were significantly related to the Helicobacter pylori infection status of GC patients. High expression of five genes (SLC30A1, 5-7, and 9) was significantly correlated with better overall survival (OS), first progression survival (FPS), and post progression survival (PPS). Conversely, upregulated SLC30A2-4, 8, and 10 expression was markedly associated with poor OS, FP and PPS. And SLC30A family genes were closely associated with the infiltration of immune cells. The present study implied that SLC30A5 and 7 may be potential biomarkers for predicting prognosis in GC patients, SLC30A2 and 3 play an oncogenic role in GC patients and could provide a new strategy for GC patients treatment.

Transcobalamin (TCN1) is a vitamin B12 (cobalamin)-binding protein that regulates cobalamin homeostasis. Recent studies and bioinformatic analyses have found that TCN1 is highly expressed in cancer tissues and is associated with tumour aggressiveness and poor prognosis. The present study aimed to detect TCN1 as a novel biomarker for prognosis and chemosensitivity of colon cancer. Next-generation sequencing showed that TCN1 was one of several upregulated mRNAs in colon cancer, which was verified by further bioinformatics analyses. Western blotting (n = 9) and quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR, n = 30) revealed that TCN1 was highly expressed in colon cancer tissues at both the protein and mRNA level. A total of 194 cases of colon cancer were examined by immunohistochemistry and revealed that TCN1 expression level was related to advanced stages (P < 0.005). Kaplan-Meier analysis verified that patients with lower TCN1 expression usually had longer overall survival (P = 0.008). In addition, TCN1 was highly expressed in pulmonary metastatic tumour tissues (n = 37, P = 0.025) and exhibited higher levels in right-sided colon cancer than in left-sided colon cancer (P = 0.029). TCN1 expression in specimens that had received neoadjuvant chemotherapy decreased compared with that in colonoscopy biopsy tissues (n = 42, P = 0.009). Further bioinformatics analyses verified that apoptosis pathways might have a role in high TCN1 expression. All the studies revealed that TCN1 expression in colon cancer was significantly associated with malignant biological behaviour. Therefore, TCN1 could be used as a novel biomarker for colon cancer aggressiveness and prognosis and might also be a potential biomarker for predicting neoadjuvant chemosensitivity.

BACKGROUND: Although radiotherapy is an important treatment mode for esophageal cancer (EC), the outcome remains unsatisfactory due to radioresistance, and the key cause of radiotherapy resistance is a change in the cell cycle. Zinc deficiency (ZD) has a significant influence on the cell cycle, and this effect is a common phenomenon in areas with a high incidence of esophageal cancer. METHODS: Radioresistant sub-cell lines were established by exposing esophageal cancer cells to nine rounds of X-ray irradiation at a dose of 2 Gy. The cells were treated with a range of different concentrations of zinc and overexpression of miR-193b. And proliferation, colony formation, cell cycle and apoptosis assays were then conducted. Luciferase reporter assays were performed to confirm direct interactions between miR-193b and ZRT/IRT-like protein 5 (ZIP5) and between miR-193b and Cyclin D1. Analysis of clinical and follow-up data was performed using data obtained from 75 patients from Cixian, a well-known high incidence area of esophageal cancer. All these patients are unable to tolerate surgery due to their advanced age or advanced stage, and serum specimens were obtained before the patients received therapy. RESULTS: The cell cycle of radioresistant cells is blocked in G0/G1 phase (from 50% to 68%). The expression level of Cyclin D1 was decreased and miR-193b was increased in radioresistant cells (P < 0.001). ZD decreased the proportion of cells in G0/G1 phase both in EC (from 50% to 32%) and radioresistant (from 68% to 47%) cells. And the radioresistance of these two cells were decreased. ZD increased the expression of Cyclin D1 (P < 0.001) and inhibited the level of miR-193b (P < 0.001). Up-regulation of miR-193b recovered the proportion of cells in G0/G1 phase and the radioresistance, meanwhile, recovered the altered expression levels of Cyclin D1 and miR-193b of these two cells by ZD. ZD enhanced DNMT activity both in EC (32%) and radioresistant (26%). And miR-193b was hypermethylated both in EC and radioresistant cells. MiR-193b supp ressed Cyclin D1 expression by targeting the 3'UTR of Cyclin D1 mRNA. The expression level of miR-193b in the serum of patients was correlated with the disease control rate (DCR) and had a good diagnostic value for distinguishing DCR of EC patients (AUC = 0.710, 95%CI: 0.580-0.839, P = 0.003). And the level of miR-193b was correlated with overall survival (OS) (HR = 0.208, 95%CI: 0.094-0.464). CONCLUSIONS: The methylation-mediated silencing of miR-193b in EC cells due to ZD increased the expression of ZIP5, and the overexpression of ZIP5 increased the intracellular zinc levels to maintain zinc homeostasis. Meanwhile, the silencing of miR-193b increased the sensitivity of radiotherapy by promoting the expression of Cyclin D1.

Esophageal cancer is one of the most common cancer types in the world, with a widely varying incidence between different regions. Zinc deficiency (ZD) is very common in high­risk areas for esophageal cancer. Dietary ZD is reported to be associated with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). In the current study, the effects of ZD on tumorigenesis and expression of inflammatory factors were investigated in mice. It was identified that a ZD diet advanced ESCC and increased the expression of cyclooxygenase­2 (COX­2) prior to the occurrence of ESCC in mice. ZD significantly enhanced DNA methyltransferase (DNMT) activity and increased the expression of DNMT1 and DNMT3B. Furthermore, the expression of miR­128 was downregulated by methylation, and COX­2, a direct target of miR­128, was upregulated with the reduction in miR­128. Upregulation of miR­128 inhibited the cell cycle, proliferation and metastasis, and the expression of COX­2, cyclin D1 and retinoblastoma protein (Rb). Furthermore, the relative expression level of miR­128 was negatively associated with COX­2 in ESCC tissues. Collectively, these findings indicate that methylation­associated silencing of miR­128 promotes the development of esophageal cancer through upregulation of the expression of cyclin D1 and Rb by targeting COX­2 in ZD regions with a high incidence of esophageal cancer.
