Shu-Qin Chen et al.
International journal of gynecological cancer : official journal of the International Gynecological Cancer Society, 24(9), 1653-1658 (2014-10-03)
The current study was undertaken to investigate the predictive value of simultaneous enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) and P53 expression in lesions of patients with cervical squamous cell carcinoma. Quantum dot double fluorescence staining was applied to detect EZH2
Ziming Li et al.
FEBS letters, 588(17), 3000-3007 (2014-06-15)
EZH2 is a key component of the polycomb PRC2 complex and functions as a histone H3 Lys27 (H3K27) trimethyltransferase. Here we show that EZH2 is down-regulated in human non-small cell lung cancer and low EZH2 expression predicts poor survival. Further
H Chen et al.
Genomics, 38(1), 30-37 (1996-11-15)
To identify genes that map on human chromosome 21 (HC21) and that may contribute to the phenotype of Down syndrome (DS), exon trapping was applied to cosmid DNA from an HC21-specific library LL21NCO2-Q. More than 550 potential exons were cloned
Warren Fiskus et al.
Molecular cancer therapeutics, 5(12), 3096-3104 (2006-12-19)
Human enhancer of zeste 2 (EZH2) protein belongs to the multiprotein polycomb repressive complex 2, which also includes suppressor of zeste 12 (SUZ12) and embryonic ectoderm development (EED). The polycomb repressive complex 2 complex possesses histone methyltransferase activity mediated by
J Bai et al.
Cell proliferation, 47(3), 211-218 (2014-04-18)
Enhancer of zeste homologue 2 (EZH2) is crucially involved in epigenetic silencing by acting as a histone methyltransferase. Although EZH2 is overexpressed in many cancers and is involved in malignant cell proliferation and invasion, the role of EZH2 in senescence
Hanwen Zhang et al.
Oncogene, 39(5), 1041-1048 (2019-10-05)
Medulloblastoma (MB) is a malignant pediatric brain tumor for which new therapies are urgently needed. We demonstrate that treatment with EPZ-6438 (Tazemetostat), an enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) inhibitor approved for clinical trials, blocks MB cell growth in vitro
Ana S A Cohen et al.
Human mutation, 37(3), 301-307 (2015-12-24)
Weaver syndrome (WS) is a rare congenital disorder characterized by generalized overgrowth, macrocephaly, specific facial features, accelerated bone age, intellectual disability, and susceptibility to cancers. De novo mutations in the enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) have been shown to
Lin Guo et al.
Tumour biology : the journal of the International Society for Oncodevelopmental Biology and Medicine, 35(7), 6649-6656 (2014-04-08)
The present meta-analysis aggregated the results of relevant studies to identify the role of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) expression in gastric carcinogenesis among Asians. Related articles were found by searching the following electronic databases without language restrictions: PubMed, SpringerLink, Karger
Jurate Savickiene et al.
Anti-cancer drugs, 25(8), 938-949 (2014-05-08)
Therapeutic strategies targeting histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibition have become promising in many human malignancies. Belinostat (PXD101) is a hydroxamate-type HDAC inhibitor tested in phase I and II clinical trials in solid tumors and hematological cancers. However, little is known about
Gorica Nikoloski et al.
Nature genetics, 42(8), 665-667 (2010-07-06)
In myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), deletions of chromosome 7 or 7q are common and correlate with a poor prognosis. The relevant genes on chromosome 7 are unknown. We report here that EZH2, located at 7q36.1, is frequently targeted in MDS. Analysis
Eri Imagawa et al.
Human mutation, 38(6), 637-648 (2017-02-24)
Weaver syndrome (WS) is a rare congenital overgrowth disorder caused by heterozygous mutations in EZH2 (enhancer of zeste homolog 2) or EED (embryonic ectoderm development). EZH2 and EED are core components of the polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2), which possesses
Ruishan Zhang et al.
Cancer cell international, 20, 175-175 (2020-06-02)
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is the most aggressive subtype of breast cancer that lacks expression of estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) and the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) gene. Chemotherapy remains the standard of care for
