Human chromosome 3P regions of putative tumor-suppressor genes in renal, breast, and ovarian carcinomas

Human chromosome 3P regions of putative tumor-suppressor genes in renal, breast, and ovarian... Allelic imbalances (AI) of polymorphic markers at the short arm of chromosome 3 (3p) were mapped using DNA samples of renal cell carcinoma (RCC, 80 cases), breast carcinoma (BC, 95 cases), and epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC, 50 cases) at the same dense panel of markers (up to 24 loci). Six regions with the increased AI frequency (versus the average values determined for all the analyzed 3p markers) at RCC, BC or EOC were found in 3p chromosome. Four 3p regions presumably contain tumor-suppressor genes (TSG) involved in the epithelial tumors of various types. Region between D3S2409 and D3S3667 markers in the 3p21.31 region was identified in this study for the first time. The AI peak in D3S2409-D3S3667 region was statistically significant (P < 0.001, according to Fisher) when representative sample set of 95 BC patients was analyzed. The data on increased frequency of polymorphic marker allele amplification suggest that the D3S2409-D3S3667 region contains both putative TSG and protooncogenes.
