BACKGROUND: The detection of molecules and mechanisms affecting the malignant phenotype of gastric cancer cells may contribute to the identification of biomarkers for metastasis and recurrence, and such molecules may serve as targets of therapy. For this purpose, in this study transcriptome analysis was performed using surgically resected specimens from patients with gastric cancer with synchronous metastasis. We identified homeobox C10 (HOXC10) as the most highly expressed gene in gastric cancer tissues compared with the adjacent noncancerous gastric mucosa...

The characteristics of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) which derived from multiple myeloma (MM) patients is typically impaired in osteogenic differentiation. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms need to be further investigated. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as critical regulation molecules in oncogenic pathways. In this study, we identified that bioactive lncRNA HOXC-AS3, which is transcribed in opposite to HOXC10, was presented in MSCs derived from bone marrow (BM) of MM patients (MM-MSCs)...

As a member of the homeobox gene family, HOXC10 plays an important role in cell differentiation and embryonic development of mammals. Increasing evidence also suggests a regulatory role of HOXC10 in oncogenesis, but the regulation of HOXC10 gene expression is relatively understudied. In this report, we revealed that the HOXC10 promoter contains multiple G-tracts in its negative strand and has high potential of forming G-quadruplex structures. In circular dichroism studies, synthesized oligonucleotides based on the G-rich region of 241-297 base pairs upstream of the HOXC10 transcription start site showed molar ellipticity at specific wavelengths characteristic of G-quadruplex structures...

This study examined the association between changes in mRNA expression of development-related genes including those of the homeobox (Hox) family and growth-dependent increases in inguinal, mesenteric, and epididymal white adipose tissue (WAT) at 4, 6, 10, and 14 weeks of age in rats. We also examined the effects of a 9-week exercise training regimen starting at 5 weeks of age on the mRNA levels of the genes of interest. HoxC8, HoxC9, Gpc4, Bmpr1a, Pparγ, Pgc1α, Adrb3, Hsl, leptin, and adiponectin in each type of WAT - except HoxA5, Gpc4, and Pgc1α in epididymal - showed a positive association between WAT weights and WAT mRNA levels; however, the slope of the regression lines exhibited fat depot-specific differences...

Homeobox gene C10 (HOXC10), known to regulate cell differentiation and proliferation, is upregulated in gastric cancer (GC). The mechanism underlying HOXC10 involvement in GC metastasis is unclear. Herein, we found that HOXC10 is overexpressed in GC relative to normal controls. In the 73 GC patients tissue microarrays (TMA) tested, HOXC10 expression was closely related with tumor-node-metastasis (TNM) stage, lymph node metastasis, and distant metastasis. HOXC10 overexpression tended to associate with low 5-year cumulative survival...

The prognosis for patients with malignant glioma is very poor and thus the identification of new potential therapeutic targets is critically important. In this work, we report a previously unknown role for the homeobox transcription factor HOXC10 in regulating immunosuppressive gene expression in glioma cell lines and their proliferative and invasive capacities. Although HOXC10 expression is dysregulated in several types of tumors, its potential function in glioma was not known. We found that HOXC10 expression was upregulated in glioma compared with normal tissue, and that HOXC10 expression positively associated with high grading of glioma...

In tetrapods, Tbx4 , Tbx5 and Hox cluster genes are crucial for forelimb and hindlimb development and mutations in these genes are responsible for congenital limb defects. The molecular basis of their integrated mechanisms of action in the context of limb development remains poorly understood. We studied Tbx4 and Hoxc10 owing to their overlapping loss-of-function phenotypes and colocalized expression in mouse hindlimb buds. We report an extensive overlap between Tbx4 and Hoxc10 genome occupancy and their putative target genes...

Glioma is one of the most common primary brain tumors with poor prognosis. Although radiotherapy is an important treatment method for gliomas, the efficacy is still limited by the high occurrence of radioresistance and the underlying molecular mechanism is unclear. Here, we performed a data mining work based on four glioma expression datasets. These datasets were classified into training set and validation set. Radiotherapy-induced differential expressed genes and prognosis-associated genes were screened using different classifiers...

Trimethylation of Histone 3 lysine 27 (H3K27me3) is a chromatin modification that is associated with transcriptional repression (Cao et al., 2002; Sarma et al., 2008; Pengelly et al., 2013) [1], [2], [3]. In this article we performed anti-H3K27me3 Chromosomal Immunoprecipitation (ChIP-PCR), to detect the abundance of H3K27me3 marks on Ef1-alpha, cyp26A, HoxC10, HoxD10 and HoxD11 in the Xenopus XTC cell line. We also performed RT-PCR for these genes to determine whether their expression is detectable in the XTC cell culture...

Functions of microRNAs have been characterized in the embryologic, physiologic, and oncogenic processes, but the role of microRNAs in mediating tumor-specific organ metastasis was addressed only recently and still absent in gastric cancer peritoneal metastasis. Here, we used the microarray analysis to define the gastric cancer peritoneal metastasis-related microRNAs from highly peritoneal metastatic derivatives (GC-9811P cells) and the parental GC-9811 human gastric cancer cells. MiR-136 was found to be decreased in all peritoneal metastatic sublines when compared with that in the parental line...

Given that increased thermogenesis in white adipose tissue, also known as browning, promotes energy expenditure, significant efforts have been invested to determine the molecular factors involved in this process. Here we show that HOXC10, a homeobox domain-containing transcription factor expressed in subcutaneous white adipose tissue, is a suppressor of genes involved in browning white adipose tissue. Ectopic expression of HOXC10 in adipocytes suppresses brown fat genes, whereas the depletion of HOXC10 in adipocytes and myoblasts increases the expression of brown fat genes...
