Although changes in nuclear structure and organization are common in cancer cells, relatively little is known about how nuclear architecture influences cancer progression and pathology. We find that increasing NTF2 expression in WM983B metastatic melanoma cells reduces cell proliferation and motility while increasing apoptosis. NTF2 levels influence the expression and nuclear positioning of a number of genes linked to cell proliferation and migration, and nuclear size, nuclear lamin A, and chromatin organization, leading to changes in nuclear size, nuclear lamin A levels, and chromatin organization.
Both genetic and transcriptomic signatures have been used to predict responses to metastatic melanoma treatments to immune checkpoint blockade therapies; however, the majority of these signatures are obtained from pre-treatment biopsy results. Here, we produce pathway-based super signatures in pre-treatment and on-treatment tumor specimens based on transcriptomic results and clinical evidence from a large dataset of metastatic melanoma treated with anti-PD1-based therapies as the training set. Both PASS-PRE and PASS-ON signatures are tested in three independent datasets of metastatic melanoma as the validation set, with the aim of achieving areas under the curves of 0. 45-0. 69 and 0. 85-0. 89, respectively.
Melanoma is one of the most common and deadly skin cancers, and although histopathological methods are used for its diagnosis, biomarkers are needed to identify the different evolutionary stages. The applications of molecular imaging include in vivo diagnosis of cancer as well as probes that identify the tumor-biomarkers specific term, which allows for external image acquisitions and analysis of the biological process in qualitative ways. Aptamers are oligonucleotide molecules that recognize targets with high affinity and specificity, resulting in their useful molecular imaging studies. PTK7-receptor overexpressed in several forms of tumors, according to Sgc8-c, who selectively recognizes PTK7-receptor overexpressed in various types of tumors. Sgc8-c was tested in a metastatic melanoma model as a molecular imaging probe for in vivo diagnostic as well as in a non-metastatic melanoma model. Firstly, two probes, radio- and fluorescent-probe, were in vitro tested, establishing the high specific PTK7 identification and internalization in tumor cells by the endosomal route.
Our goal was to determine whether biomarkers isolated from baseline 18 F-FDG PET before anti-PD1 therapy may have contributed to prognostic survival data for early risk stratification in metastatic melanoma. Those with shorter OS and long zone emphasis correlated with shorter OS, and we were able to identify three risk categories for the prognostic score. To summarize, a prognostic score based on total MTV and LZE separated metastatic melanoma patients in three categories with very different outcomes.
