A novel functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs2274223 located in the phospholipase C epsilon 1 (PLCE1) gene was found to be associated with the risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) by three large-scale genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in Chinese populations. In the present study, we validated this finding and also explored the risk of ESCC associated with other two unreported potentially functional SNPs (rs17417407 G>T and rs2274224 C>G) of PLCE1 in a population-based case-control study to investigate the association between these three potentially functional SNPs in PLCE1 and susceptibility to ESCC. A total of 381 ESCC cases and 420 controls matched by age and sex were recruited and successfully genotyped for three SNPs (rs17417407, rs2274223 and rs2274224) of the PLCE1 in a central Chinese population. SNP rs2274223 was independently associated with increased risk of ESCC (adjusted odds ratio [OR], 2.80; 95% confidence interval [95% CI], 1.45-5.39 for GG vs. AA), and SNP rs2274224 was found to be associated with decreased risk of ESCC (adjusted OR, 0.65; 95% CI, 0.46-0.91 for CG vs. CC). The combined effects of risk alleles for three SNPs (rs17417407T, rs2274223G and rs2274224G) were found to be associated with elevated risk of ESCC in a dose-dependent effect manner (Ptrend=0.005). The Grs17417407Ars2274223Crs2274224 haplotype decreased the risk of ESCC (adjusted OR, 0.76; 95% CI, 0.62-0.93), meanwhile the Grs17417407Grs2274223Crs2274224 and Trs17417407Grs2274223Crs2274224 haplotypes could increase the risk of ESCC (adjusted OR, 1.75; 95% CI, 1.33-2.18 and OR, 2.51; 95% CI, 1.15-2.49). Gene-environment interaction analysis presented a best model consisted of four factors (rs2274223, rs2274224, family history, and smoking) with testing balance accuracy (TBA): 0.66 and cross validation consistency (CVC): 7/10, which could increase the esophageal cancer risk in the "high risk group" with 3.67-fold (OR: 3.67, 95% CI: 2.74-4.92), compared to the "low risk group". Our results further confirmed that genetic variations in PLCE1 may contribute to ESCC risk associated with tobacco exposure in a central Chinese population. Further functional studies are needed to validate our results. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study is to clarify and quantify the potential dose-response association between the intake of total red and total processed meat and risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Relevant studies were identified by searching PubMed, EMBASE, and Chinese databases (CNKI and Wanfang). The summary relative risk (RR) with 95% confidence interval (95%CI) was calculated. A total of 15 independent studies with 12,735 subjects were identified. Compared with the low-rank intake, the summary RR of NPC was 1.35 (95%CI, 1.21–1.51) for total red meat and 1.46 (95%CI, 1.34–1.64) for total processed meat. For the moderate-rank intake, the summary RR of NPC was 1.54 (95%CI, 1.36–1.79) for total red meat and 1.59 (95%CI, 1.3–1.90) for total processed meat. The summary RR for high-rank intake was 1.71 (95%CI, 1.14–2.55) for total red meat and 2.11 (95%CI, 1.31–3.42) for total processed meat. The combined estimates showed obvious evidence of statistically significant association between total red and total processed meat consumption dose and risk of NPC (Ptrend< 0.01). In conclusion, our data suggest that a high intake of total red or total processed meat is associated with a significantly increased risk of NPC. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

Genome-wide association studies have identified a susceptibility variation MUC1 rs4072037 for gastric cancer in Chinese population. Subsequent case-control studies have reported this association in other populations. However, the results remain controversial and ambiguous. The aim of this study is to provide a precise quantification for the association between MUC1 rs4072037 variation and the risk of cancer. We performed pooled analysis of 10 case-control designed studies including 4,220 cases and 6,384 controls. Odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence interval (95%CI) were calculated to assess strength of association in overall studies and in subgroup analysis stratified by ethnicity and cancer types. All statistical analyses were performed by Manager 5.0 and Stata 12.0 software. Overall, the MUC1 rs4072037 polymorphism was associated with risk of cancer in all genetic models (G vs A: OR = 0.71, 95%CI: 0.63-0.80, p<0.01; GA vs AA: OR = 0.61, 95%CI:0.55-0.67, p<0.01; GG vs AA: OR = 0.58, 95%CI: 0.47-0.71, p<0.01; AG+AA vs GG: OR = 0.60, 95%CI: 0.55-0.60, p<0.01; GG vs AG+AA: OR = 0.70, 95%CI: 0.58-0.85, p<0.01). Further, subgroup analysis based on ethnicity suggested MUC1 rs4072037 polymorphism had a subtly reduced cancer risk among Asian population, and stratified analysis by cancer types showed significantly decreased risk of gastric cancer in all genetic models. In conclusion, MUC1 rs4072037 polymorphism may be used as potential biomarker for cancer susceptibility particularly for gastric cancer and for Asian population. © 2014 Duan et al.

The exonuclease1 (Exo1) gene is a key component of mismatch repair (MMR) by resecting the damaged strand, which is the only exonuclease involved in the human MMR system. The gene product is a member of the RAD2 nuclease family and functions in DNA replication, repair and recombination. However, whether Exo1 is required to activate MMR-dependent DNA damage response (DDR) remains unknown, the conclusions of the Exo1 polymorphisms on cancer susceptibility studies were not consistent. We carried out a meta-analysis of 7 case-control studies to clarify the association between the Exo1 K589E polymorphism and cancer risk. Overall,a significant association of the Exo1 K589E polymorphism with cancer risk in all genetic models (Lys vs Glu: OR = 1.51, 95%CI:1.39-1.99, P<0.01; Glu/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 1.43, 95%CI:1.28-1.60, P<0.01; Lys/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 2.45, 95%CI:1.90-3.17, P<0.01; Lys/Lys+Glu/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 1.53, 95%CI:1.38-1.71, P< 0.01; Glu/ Glu vs Glu/Lys+Lys/Lys: OR = 2.27, 95%CI:1.79-2.89, P<0.01). In the stratified analysis by ethnicity, significantly increased risk was observed in Asian population (Lys vs Glu: OR = 1.53, 95%CI:1.39-1.69, P<0.01; Glu/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 1.50, 95%CI:1.34- 1.69, P<0.01; Lys/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 2.48, 95%CI:1.84-3.34, P<0.01; Lys/Lys+Glu/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 1.58, 95%CI:1.41-1.78, P<0.01; Glu/Glu vs Glu/Lys+Lys/Lys: OR = 2.18, 95%CI:1.62-2.93, P<0.01). Subgroup analysis based on smoking suggested Exo1 K589E polymorphism conferred significant risk among smokers (Lys/Lys+Glu/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 2.16, 95%CI:1.77-2.63, P<0.01), but not in non-smokers (Lys/Lys+Glu/Lys vs Glu/Glu: OR = 0.89, 95%CI:0.64-1.24, P = 0.50). In conclusion, Exo1 K589E Lys allele may be used as a novel biomarker for cancer susceptibility, particularly in smokers. © 2014 Duan et al.

Purpose: The aim of our study is to provide a precise quantification for the association between DNA methyltransferase 3B (DNMT3B) variations (rs2424913 C/T, rs1569686 G/T, rs6087990 T/C and rs2424908 T/C) and the risk of cancer. Methods: We performed a systematic literature review and assessed the methodological quality of included case–control designed studies based on Newcastle–Ottawa Scale. Pooled odds ratios (ORs) and corresponding 95 % confidence intervals (95 % CIs) were calculated to assess the strengths of the associations. Results: We identified 34 studies for pooled analyses. Overall, the results demonstrated that rs2424913 polymorphism was significantly associated with negative cancer risk in the African population (CT vs TT: OR 0.10, 95 % CI 0.02–0.63, P = 0.01; CT+CC vs TT: OR 0.14, 95 % CI 0.03–0.76, P = 0.02), and the rs1569686 polymorphism was significantly associated with a subtly decreased cancer risk (GT vs TT: OR 0.80, 95 % CI 0.72–0.90, P < 0.01; GT+GG vs TT: OR 0.84, 95 % CI 0.76–0.94, P < 0.01), particularly in the Asian population (GT vs TT: OR 0.79, 95 % CI 0.66–0.96, P < 0.01) and in colorectal cancer subgroup (G vs T: OR 0.69, 95 % CI 0.54–0.88, P < 0.01). In addition, the rs6087990 polymorphism was associated with decreased risk in Asian population (T vs C: OR 0.77, 95 % CI 0.62–0.96, P = 0.02). Similarly, the rs2424908 polymorphism was observed as a protective factor for cancer in the Asian population (CT+CC vs TT: OR 0.79, 95 % CI 0.66–0.95, P = 0.01). Conclusions: DNMT3B polymorphisms might be associated with decreased cancer risk especially in the Asian population and for colorectal cancer. Further multicentric studies are still needed to confirm the results. © 2014, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Meta-analyses have shown that microRNA polymorphisms have variable effects in different population. Yet, no meta-analysis investigated the association of two common polymorphisms of miRNA, mir-499 rs3746444 polymorphism and mir-149 rs2292832 polymorphism, with cancer risk in the Chinese population. We searched the PubMed, Web of Knowledge, MEDLINE, CNKI databases, as well as Cochrane library, updated on December 31, 2012 for assays regarding cancer risk association with these two common polymorphisms in the present meta-analysis. Odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were used to explore the strength of associations. The results showed that rs3746444 polymorphism was associated with increased cancer risk (dominant model: GG/AG vs. AA: OR = 1.43, 95% CI: 1.14-1.80; recessive model: GG vs. AG/AA: OR = 1.54, 95% CI: 1.04-2.30; homozygote model: GG vs. AA: OR = 1.69, 95% CI: 1.10-2.60; heterozygote model: AG vs. AA: OR = 1. 35, 95% CI: 1.09-1.67), and rs3746444 was associated with liver cancer in the subgroup of cancer types. For the rs2292832 polymorphism, the results showed no significant risk association in both overall pooled analysis and subgroup of cancer types, smoking status, gender and tea drinking status in the Chinese population. This meta-analysis suggested that the rs3746444 GG genotype is associated with increased cancer risk, especially liver cancer, while the rs2292832 polymorphism showed no association with cancer risk in Chinese.

Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) steroid receptor RNA activator (SRA) has been identified to activate steroid receptor transcriptional activity and participate in tumor pathogenesis. This case-control study evaluated the association between two haplotype tagging SNPs (htSNPs) (rs10463297, rs801460) of the whole SRA sequence and breast cancer risk. We found that rs10463297 TC genotype significantly increased BC risk compared with CC genotype in both the codominant (TC vs. TT: OR=1.43, 95 % CI=1.02-2.00) and recessive (TC+CC vs. TT: OR=1.39, 95 % CI=1.01-1.92) genetic models. Both TC, TC + CC genotypes of rs10463297 and GA, AA, GA+AA genotypes of rs801460 were significantly associated with estrogen receptor (ER) positivity status. rs10463297 TC (2.09 ± 0.41), CC (2.42 ± 0.51) and TC + CC (2.20 ± 0.47) genotypes were associated with higher blood plasma SRA mRNA levels compared with the TT genotype(1.45 ± 0.34). Gene-reproductive interaction analysis presented a best model consisted of four factors (rs10463297, age, post-menopausal, No. of pregnancy), which could increase the BC risk with 1.58-fold (OR=1.58, 95 % CI=1.23-2.03). These findings suggest that SRA genetic variants may contribute to BC risk and have apparent interaction with reproductive factors in BC progression.

To explore the technique principle of PCR with confronting two-pair primers (PCR-CTPP) and improve the accuracy of SNP genotyping by taking the 1298 locus of human gene MTHFR as an example, the reliability between conventional PCR-CTPP and improved PCR-CTPP was compared using reconstructed PCR-CTPP detecting system in terms of designing appropriate primers and optimizing annealing temperature and the final concentration of primers. The improved PCR-CTPP detection system proved to be more accurate, which supported the viewpoint on the theoretical defects of conventional PCR-CTPP. The large-scale study verified the reliability of the improved method. It is expected that this improved technique would be widely used in the field of medicine and molecular biology.

Helicobacter pylori, a risk factor of cancer and chronic diseases, remains highly prevalent in China. This review aims to systematically evaluate the H. pylori-attributable burden for gastric cancer (GC), coronary heart disease (CHD), and ischemic stroke (IS) in the Chinese population. Helicobacter pylori prevalence was updated by pooling the results reported in studies across China. The population attributable fraction (PAF) was calculated based on the H. pylori prevalence 10 years ago and relative risks of specific disease by reviewing the prospective studies published from 2000 through 2015. In China, the nationwide average prevalence of H. pylori was estimated to be 42.06 % in the general population during 2009–2013. The fixed effects pooled relative risk (RR) of 1.89 [95 % confidence interval (CI): 1.57–2.26] was obtained for gastric cancer and H. pylori infection. Helicobacter pylori infection was responsible for around 37.38 % of noncardia GC, corresponding to about 105,536 cases in 2012. As for extra-gastric disorders, H. pylori infections had higher risk of CHD (RR = 1.55, 95 % CI: 1.37–1.76) and IS (RR = 1.54, 95 % CI: 1.42–1.66). About 23.15 % of CHD and 22.29 % of IS were attributable to H. pylori infection. The estimates of H. pylori-attributable burden reveal a great potential of reducing H. pylori-related chronic disease burden by H. pylori eradication. Large prospective studies are warranted to identify which H. pylori strains, which subtypes of the disease, and which subgroups of the population have the greatest risk of relevant diseases and the effect of H. pylori eradication on the prevention of H. pylori-related diseases. © 2016 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

Polymorphisms in miRNA binding sites have been shown to affect miRNA binding to target genes, resulting in differential mRNA and protein expression and susceptibility to common diseases. Our purpose was to predict SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) within miRNA binding sites of inflammatory genes in relation to gastric cancer. A complete list of SNPs in the 3'UTR regions of all inflammatory genes associated with gastric cancer was obtained from Pubmed. miRNA target prediction databases (MirSNP, Targetscan Human 6.2, PolymiRTS 3.0, miRNASNP 2.0, and Patrocles) were used to predict miRNA target sites. There were 99 SNPs with MAF>0.05 within the miRNA binding sites of 41 genes among 72 inflammation-related genes associated with gastric cancer. NF-κB and JAK-STAT are the two most important signaling pathways. 47 SNPs of 25 genes with 95 miRNAs were predicted. CCL2 and IL1F5 were found to be the shared target genes of hsa-miRNA-624-3p. Bioinformatic methods could identify a set of SNPs within miRNA binding sites of inflammatory genes, and provide data and direction for subsequent functional verification research.
