Background Evidence suggests that MDM2 T309G polymorphism may be a risk factor for several cancers. Increasing investigations have been conducted on the association of MDM2 T309G polymorphisms with lung cancer risk and have yielded conflicting results. Previous meta-analyses on this issue have reported inconclusive data. The aim of the present study was to derive a more precise estimation of the relationship. Methods and Findings Updated meta-analyses examining the association between MDM2 T309G polymorphism and lung cancer risk were performed. Separate analyses on ethnicity, smoking status, histological types and gender as well as source of controls were also implemented. Eligible studies were identified for the period up to Feb 2012. Lastly, ten publications including eleven case-control studies were selected for analysis. The overall data failed to indicate a significant association between MDM2 T309G polymorphism and lung cancer risk (GG vs TT OR = 1.14; 95%CI = 0.95−1.37; dominant model: OR = 1.05; 95%CI = 0.92−1.19; recessive model: OR = 1.12; 95%CI = 0.99−1.27). In a subgroup analysis by smoking status, increased lung cancer risk was shown among never-smokers (GG vs TT: OR = 1.76; 95%CI = 1.36−2.29; dominant model: OR = 1.48; 95%CI = 1.22−1.81; recessive model: OR = 1.37; 95%CI = 1.11−1.69). In subgroup analysis by gender, elevated risk was presented among women under a recessive model (OR = 1.29; 95%CI = 1.04−1.59). In the subgroup analysis by ethnicity, histological types and source of controls, no marked associations were observed. Conclusions Compared to the previous meta-analyses, the results of this study confirmed that MDM2 T309G polymorphism might be a risk factor for lung cancer among never-smokers. However, the data failed to suggest a marked association between the G allele of MDM2 T309G and lung cancer risk among Asians. More interestingly, subgroup analysis by gender indicated that homozygous GG alleles might raise lung cancer risk among females.

A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) at position 309 in the promoter region of MDM2 leading to increased expression of MDM2 and attenuated function of p53 has recently been suggested as an unfavorable prognostic marker in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) although this has been questioned. The MDM2 SNP309 genotypes in 173 CLL patients and 260 healthy controls were detected by the polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR–RFLP) method, which was confirmed by direc...

Purpose The P53–MDM2 pathway plays a central role in sarcoma pathogenesis. Functional P53 Arg72Pro and MDM2 T309G single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) are considered to have significant effects on risk of sarcomas.
MDM2 was originally identified as an oncoprotein that binds to p53 and inhibits p53-mediated transactivation. Scientists have described functional single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in the MDM2 gene. They showed that the genotype of SNP 309 induces an increase in the level of MDM2 protein, which causes attenuation of the p53 pathway. In this study, we sought to investigate whether this polymorphism was related to risk of colorectal cancer and whether there were relationships between SNP 309 a...

The proportion of never smoker non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in Asia is about 30–40%. Despite the striking demographics and high prevalence of never smoker NSCLC, the exact causes still remain undetermined. Although several genome wide association (GWA) studies were conducted to find susceptibility loci for lung cancer in never smokers, no regions were replicated except for 5p15.33, suggesting locus heterogeneity and different environmental toxic effects. To identify genetic loci associated...

A recent genome-wide association study (GWAS) of subjects from Japan and South Korea reported a novel association between the TP63 locus on chromosome 3q28 and risk of lung adenocarcinoma (p = 7.3 × 10−12); however, this association did not achieve genome-wide significance (p ≤ 10−7) among never-smoking males or females. To determine if this association with lung cancer risk is independent of tobacco use, we genotyped the TP63 SNPs reported by the previous GWAS (rs10937405 and rs4488809) in 3,46...

Although lung cancer is largely caused by tobacco smoking, inherited genetic factors play a role in its etiology. Genome-wide association studies in Europeans have only robustly demonstrated 3 polymorphic variations that influence the risk of lung cancer. Tumor heterogeneity may have hampered the detection of association signal when all lung cancer subtypes were analyzed together. In a genome-wide association study of 5,355 European ever-smoker lung cancer patients and 4,344 smoking control subj...

The ATM kinase and p53 are key tumor suppressor factors that control the genotoxic stress response pathway. The ATM substrate Mdm2 controls p53 activity by either targeting p53 for degradation or promoting its synthesis by binding the p53 mRNA. The physiological role and regulation of Mdm2's dual function toward p53 is not known. Here we show that ATM-dependent phosphorylation of Mdm2 at Ser395 is required for the p53 mRNA-Mdm2 interaction. This event also promotes SUMO-conjugation of Mdm2 and i...

In this issue of Cancer Cell , Gajjar et al. provide insight into how Mdm2 can both inhibit and enhance p53 activity. In the basal setting, Mdm2 binds p53 and promotes p53 degradation. Under stress conditions, ATM-dependent phosphorylation of Mdm2 results in its recruitment to p53 mRNA, thereby stimulating p53 translation.

Abstract Several epidemiological studies have reported that gender differences exist in clinical and biological manifestations of human lung diseases. In particular, women are far more likely to develop both neoplastic and non-neoplastic lung diseases than men. This gender difference above suggests that sex steroid may be involved in the pathogenesis of various lung diseases. These sex steroids mediate their effects through sex steroid receptors including estrogen receptors (ER) i.e. ERα and ERβ...

Background: Platinum-based agents, including cisplatin, carboplatin, and oxaliplatin, are indispensable for the treatment of lung cancer. The development of toxicity frequently necessitates dose reduction or discontinuation of therapy, despite the clinical response. Pharmacogenomics studies were reviewed to identify the possible genetic variants that underlie individual susceptibility to platinum-related toxicities. Method: We conducted a systematic search in PubMed and Embase for pharmacogenomi...

Abstract The p53 pathway has been extensively studied for its role in carcinogenesis. Disruption of the pathway occurs in more than half of all cancers, often leading to a worse prognosis for the patient. In recent years several compounds have been successfully developed to target and restore the p53 pathway, either by blocking the MDM2-p53 interaction, restoring wild type conformation of mutant p53, or exploiting the presence of mutant p53 by blocking DNA damage repair pathways. In this review ...

Mouse Double Minute 2 (MDM2) has emerged as a pivotal cellular antagonist of p53 by destructing the suppressive function of p53 against tumorigenesis. The MDM2 309 T > G polymorphism has been studied for its association with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) susceptibility, but the evidence was confusing and inconclusive. Here, we performed a meta-analysis to estimate the effects of the 309 T > G polymorphism on the development of OSCC. The relevant studies were searched on both PubMed and Emb...
