Cancer biomarkers offer unique prospects for the development of cancer diagnostics and therapy. One of such biomarkers, protein survivin (Sur), exhibits strong antiapoptotic and proliferation-enhancing properties and is heavily expressed in multiple cancers. Thus, it can be utilized to provide new modalities for modulating the cell-growth rate, essential for effective cancer treatment. Herein, we have focused on the development of a new survivin-based cancer detection platform for colorectal cancer cells SW480 using a turn-on fluorescence oligonucleotide molecular beacon (MB) probe, encoded to recognize Sur messenger RNA (mRNA)...

Recently the Aurora-Kinases (Aurk) moved into the focus as novel disease related biomarkers and therapeutic targets. Elevated Aurora-Kinase expression has been found in a number of malignancies, amongst them HNSCC. For esophageal cancer, the AurkA Phe31-Ile polymorphism has previously been associated with tumor progression. Here we evaluated the treatment efficiency of HNSCC cell radiation as a function of Aurora-Kinases in HNSCC cell lines. Moreover, we investigated a potential sensitization to radiation by a cell treatment with the inhibitors Alisertib, Barasertib, Docetaxel and VX-680...

The correlation between the variations in the polymorphic sites of survivin, rs9904341C/G and rs8073069C/G, and the pathogenesis of acute leukemia, as well as the guiding significance in clinical practice were investigated. We enrolled a total of 182 children with acute leukemia and 200 healthy children as the subjects. In accordance with the case-control method, the polymerase chain reaction was carried out for genetic typing of the two polymorphic sites, rs9904341C/G and rs8073069C/G. In the case group and the healthy group, the frequencies of C and G alleles in rs9904341C/G of survivin were 59...

INTRODUCTION: Survivin is an apoptosis inhibitor and plays a primary role in cancer development and progression. One of the most common polymorphism of the survivin promoter -31G/C (rs9904341) influences its expression and is associated with the risk of cancer development. This study was conducted to explore survivin promoter gene -31G/C (rs9904341) polymorphism and the risk of breast cancer. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study group included 190 pathologically confirmed breast cancer patients, in addition to 200 distinct cancer-free controls from Jammu and Kashmir region of India, where breast cancer is the most common cancer in women...

PURPOSE: Survivin is thought to play an important role in carcinogenesis and is found to be associated with poor clinical outcome in various malignancies. Gene -31 G/C polymorphism has been identified as a risk factor for the development of several types of tumors. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between survivin gene promoter -31C/G polymorphism and urothelial carcinoma (UC) risk in Serbian population and to compare the different expressions of survivin in UC of different disease stages, histological grades and tumor location in the upper or lower urinary tract...

There is mounting evidence on the importance of some biological processes in tumor growth, such as vascular supply, apoptosis, autophagy, and senescence. We have investigated these processes in polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA), in an attempt to identify those that are relevant for this particular lesion. We analyzed 31 cases of PLGA using immunohistochemistry to antibodies against CD34 and CD105 to detect blood vessels; against D2-40 to detect lymphatic vessels; against Bax, Bcl-2, and survivin to explore cell apoptosis; and against Beclin and LCB3 to investigate autophagy and against p21 and p16 to assess senescence...

PIN1 is a peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerase that binds and catalyses isomerization of the specific motif comprising a phosphorylated serine or threonine residue preceding a proline (pSer/Thr-Pro) in proteins. PIN1 can therefore induce conformational and functional changes of its interacting proteins that are regulated by proline-directed serine/threonine phosphorylation. Through this phosphorylation-dependent prolyl isomerization, PIN1 fine-tunes the functions of key phosphoproteins (e.g., cyclin D1, survivin, β-catenin and x-protein of hepatitis B virus) that are involved in the regulation of cell cycle progression, apoptosis, proliferation and oncogenic transformation...

Survivin is an anti-apoptotic protein that is implicated in the regulation of apoptosis and cell cycle in various types of cancers. The current study explored the effect of survivin gene polymorphisms and EGFR mutations in non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) patients. A total of 360 participants, including 291 adenocarcinoma lung cancer and 69 squamous cell carcinoma lung cancer patients, were selected for the analysis of three survivin genetic variants (survivin -31, +9194, and +9809) by using real-time PCR genotyping...

Signaling properties of a fluorescent hairpin oligonucleotide molecular beacon (MB) encoded to recognize protein survivin (Sur) mRNA have been investigated. The process of complementary target binding to SurMB with 20-mer loop sequence is spontaneous, as expected, and characterized by a high affinity constant (K = 2.51 × 10(16) M(-1)). However, the slow kinetics at room temperature makes it highly irreversible. To understand the intricacies of target binding to MB, a detailed kinetic study has been performed to determine the rate constants and activation energy Ea for the reaction at physiological temperature (37 °C)...

Published data has shown inconsistent findings about the association of survivin -31 G/C polymorphism with the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). This meta-analysis quantitatively assesses the results from published studies to provide a more precise estimate of the association between survivin -31 G/C polymorphism as a possible predictor of the risk of CRC. We conducted a literature search in the PubMed, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library databases. Stata 12 software was used to calculate the pooled odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) based on the available data from each article...

Survivin, a member of the inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) protein family that inhibits caspases and blocks cell death, is highly expressed in most cancers and is associated with a poor clinical outcome. Survivin has consistently been identified by molecular profiling analysis to be associated with high tumour grade cancers, different disease survival and recurrence. Polymorphisms in the survivin gene are emerging as powerful tools to study the biology of the disease and have the potential to be used in disease prognosis and diagnosis...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Recent evidence suggests that survivin, a member of the inhibitors of apoptosis family that prevents cell death and regulates cell division is implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The aim of the study was to identify a possible association between individual genetic variation, IBD susceptibility, and response to infliximab (IFX). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The expression levels of survivin were detected in pathologic areas of fresh tissues and blood samples by real-time reverse transcriptase - polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) from IBD patients...

Identification of TCR genes specific for tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) is necessary for TCR gene modification of T cells, which is applied in anti-tumor adoptive T cell therapy (ACT). The usual identification methods are based on isolating single peptide-responding T cells and cloning the TCR gene by in vitro expansion or by single-cell RT-PCR. However, the long and exacting in vitro culture period and demanding operational requirements restrict the application of these methods. Immunoscope is an effective tool that profiles a repertoire of TCRs and identifies significantly expanded clones through CDR3 length analysis...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the most common cause of cancer death worldwide. Numerous studies have identified the roles of survivin -31 G/C and angiotensin-converting enzyme insertion/deletion (ACE I/D) polymorphisms in CRC risk; however, the results remain inconclusive. This study was to investigate associations between these two polymorphisms and CRC susceptibility. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search was conducted to collect relevant case-control studies published between 2000 and 2014...

BACKGROUND: Prostate cancer (PC) is a common tumor in Western countries. Several risk factors play significant roles. MYC, BIRC5/survivin, CDC25 and P53 may contribute to PC risk. As demonstrated, human Polyomavirus BK (BKV) could affect cellular homeostasis contributing to PC pathogenesis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Biological samples were collected from PC patients. Viral RNA was searched using quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR), whereas a qualitative PCR was employed to find particular viral sequences...
