To identify the clinical significance of Wnt5A expression in the development and progression of cervical cancer.Real-time PCR was performed in 8 pairs of surgically resected cervical cancer and adjacent normal cervical tissues. Immunohistochemistry was performed to examine Wnt5A expression in 94 paraffin-embedded cervical cancer samples. Associations of Wnt5A expression with clinicopathological factors and clinical survival were analyzed.Wnt5A expression was overexpressed in cervical cancer tissues compared with adjacent normal cervix. Wnt5A expression tended to be positively correlated with lymph nodes metastasis (P = 0.028) and recurrence (P = 0.009). Moreover, patients with higher Wnt5A expression in cancer tissues had better overall (P = 0.004) and recurrent-free survival (P = 0.012) than those with lower Wnt5A expression. Multivariate analysis revealed that Wnt5A was an independent prognostic factor (P = 0.026) for predicting overall survival of cervical cancer patients.Upregulation of Wnt5A was associated with metastasis and progression of cervical cancer. The results of our study unravel the significance of Wnt/Ca2+ signaling in cervical cancer.

To analyze the correlation of the polymorphisms of human wing-apart like (hWAPL) gene (rs7083506 and rs11202058) with the susceptibility to cervical cancer. Besides, the relationship of haplotypes between the polymorphisms with cervical cancer susceptibility was analyzed.Taqman probe genotyping method was adopted to detect the genotype distribution of hWAPL rs7083506 and rs11202058 polymorphisms in 117 cervical cancer patients and 128 healthy controls. Linkage disequilibrium and haplotypes were analyzed by Haploview software. (2) test was utilized to analyze the differences of genotype, allele and haplotype frequencies between the case and control groups.Correlation analysis of hWAPL rs7083506 and rs11202058 polymorphisms with cervical cancer susceptibility was based on the five genetic models. TT genotype of rs7083506 increased the susceptibility of cervical cancer in TT vs. CC model and TT vs. CT+TT model (OR=2.249, 95% CI=1.018-4.970; OR=2.287, 95% CI=1.069-4.896). For rs11202058, the A allele increased the cervical cancer susceptibility (A vs. G, OR=1.502, 95% CI=1.005-2.245). No significant correlation was observed between rs11202058 genotypes and cervical cancer susceptibility. We performed the haplotype analysis between the two polymorphisms, and found that T-A haplotype significantly correlated with cervical cancer, the susceptibility of cervical cancer increased to 1.78 times.Rs7083506 and rs11202058 polymorphisms of hWAPL and their haplotype T-A were associated with cervical cancer.
