DNA damage response and repair in colorectal cancer: Defects, regulation and therapeutic implications

MetadataShow full item record
DNA damage response, a key factor involved in maintaining genome integrity and stability, consists of several kinase-dependent signaling pathways, which sense and transduce DNA damage signal. The severity of damage appears to determine DNA damage responses, which can include cell cycle arrest, damage repair and apoptosis. A number of recent studies have demonstrated that defection in signaling through this network is thought to be an underlying mechanism behind the development and progression of various types of human malignancies, including colorectal cancer. In this review, colorectal cancer and its molecular pathology as well as DNA damage response is briefly introduced. Finally, the involvement of key components of this network in the initiation/progression, prognosis, response to treatment and development of drug resistance is comprehensively discussed. é 2018

Telomere shortening: A biological marker of sporadic colorectal cancer with normal expression of p53 and mismatch repair proteins Haghighi, MM; Aghagolzadeh, P; Zadeh, SM; Molaei, M; Zali, MR; Radpour, R (2014)Uncontrolled growth of cells, a main criterion of cancer, is merged with pathologic telomere length alteration. Thereby, measurement of telomere length could provide important information on cell proliferation and senescence ...
Four novel germline mutations in the MLH1 and PMS2 mismatch repair genes in patients with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer Montazer Haghighi, M; Radpour, R; Aghajani, K; Zali, N; Molaei, M; Zali, MR (2009)Background: Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is the most common cause of early onset hereditary colorectal cancer. In the majority of HNPCC families, microsatellite instability (MSI) and germline mutation ...
