Identification of Genes That Exhibit Changes in Expression on the 8p Chromosomal Arm by the Systematic Multiplex RT-PCR (SM RT-PCR) and DNA Microarray Hybridization Methods
Losses of the p-arm of chromosome 8 are frequently observed in breast, prostate, and other types of cancers. Using the Systematic Multiplex RT-PCR (SM RT-PCR) method and the DNA microarray hybridization method, we examined the expression of 273 genes located on the p-arm of chromosome 8 in five breast and three prostate human cancer cell lines. We observed frequent decreases in expression of two dozen genes and increases in expression of several genes on this chromosomal arm. These changes in gene expression of the cell lines were later confirmed by real-time qRT-PCR. Additionally and more importantly, we found that a number of these variations were also observed in the majority of clinical cases of breast cancer we examined. These included downregulation of the MYOM2, NP_859074, NP_001034551, NRG1, PHYIP (PHYHIP), Q7Z2R7, SFRP1, and SOX7 genes, and upregulation of the ESCO2, NP_115712 (GINS4), Q6P464, and TOPK (PBK) genes.

- Gene Expression, The Journal of Liver Research will publish articles in all aspects of hepatology. Hepatology, as a research discipline, has seen unprecedented growth especially in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of hepatic health and disease, which continues to have a major impact on understanding liver development, stem cells, carcinogenesis, tissue engineering, injury, repair, regeneration, immunology, metabolism, fibrosis, and transplantation. Continued research and improved understanding in these areas will have a meaningful impact on liver disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The existing journal Gene Expression has expanded its focus to become Gene Expression, The Journal of Liver Research to meet this growing demand. In its revised and expanded scope, the journal will publish high-impact original articles, reviews, short but complete articles, and special articles (editorials, commentaries, opinions) on all aspects of hepatology, making it a unique and invaluable resource for readers interested in this field. The expanded team, led by an Editor-in-Chief who is uniquely qualified and a renowned expert, along with a dynamic and functional editorial board, is determined to make this a premier journal in the field of hepatology.
