Low-grade gliomas (LGGs) are grade III gliomas based on the WHO classification with significant genetic heterogeneity and clinical properties. Traditional histological classification of gliomas has been challenged by the improvement of molecular stratification; however, the reproducibility and diagnostic accuracy of LGGs classification still remain poor. Herein, we identified fatty acid binding protein 5 (FABP5) as one of the most enriched genes in malignant LGGs and elevated FABP5 revealed severe outcomes in LGGs. Functionally, lentiviral suppression of FABP5 reduced malignant characters including proliferation, cloning formation, immigration, invasion and TMZ resistance, contrarily, the malignancies of LGGs were enhanced by exogenous overexpression of FABP5. Mechanistically, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) was correlated to FABP5 expression in LGGs and tumour necrosis factor α (TNFα)-dependent NF-κB signalling was involved in this process. Furthermore, FABP5 induced phosphorylation of inhibitor of nuclear factor kappa-B kinase α (IKKα) thus activated nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB) signalling. Taken together, our study indicated that FABP5 enhances malignancies of LGGs through canonical activation of NF-κB signalling, which could be used as individualized prognostic biomarker and potential therapeutic target of LGGs.

Transcriptomic data derived from bulk sequencing have been applied to delineate the tumor microenvironment (TME) and define immune subtypes in various cancers, that may facilitate the design of immunotherapy treatment strategies. We herein gathered published gene expression data from diffuse lower-grade glioma (LGG) patients to identify immune subtypes. Based on the immune gene profiles of 402 LGG patients from the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), we performed consensus clustering to determine robust...

Patients with cervical cancer (CCa) with lymph node metastasis (LNM) have an extremely poor prognosis. Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms underlying LNM may provide clinical therapeutic strategies for CCa. Upregulation of fatty acid-binding protein 5 (FABP5) expression in CCa tumours was demonstrated to positively correlate with LNM. However, the precise role and mechanisms of FABP5 in the LNM of CCa remain unknown. Methods: The diagnostic value of FABP5 as a predictor of LNM in CCa was eva...

INTRODUCTION: Glioblastoma (GBM) is identified as a lethal malignant tumor derived from the nervous system. Despite the standard clinical strategy including maximum surgical resection, temozolomide (TMZ) chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, the median survival of GBM patients remains <15 months. Accumulating evidence indicates that rapid-acquired radioresistance is one of the most common reasons for GBM recurrence. Therefore, developing novel therapeutic targets for radioresistant GBM could yield lon...

BACKGROUND: Gliomas consist of a heterogeneous group of tumors. This study aimed to report the incidences of O(6)-methylguanine-DNA-methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter methylation, 1p19q co-deletion, isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) gene mutations, and inactivating mutations of alpha-thalassemia/mental retardation syndrome X-linked (ATRX) in high-grade gliomas in an ethnically diverse population. METHODS: Records of patients who underwent surgery for high-grade gliomas from January 2013 to March 201...

Recurrence and metastasis are the main causes of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) mortality. On the basis of our clinical cohorts and integrative omics analyses, we hypothesized that understanding the interplay between fatty acid binding protein (FABP) and epoxy-eicosatrienoic acid (EET) driven metastatic progression can uncover a new opportunity for TNBC intervention. In this study, the biological relevance of increased protein expression of CYP2C19, FABP4, and FABP5 in TNBC tumors and in t...

Background: Gliomas are the most frequently occurring malignant brain cancers. Recently, isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) mutations, O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) promoter methylation, and 1p/19q co-deletion have been suggested to indicate a favorable prognosis in gliomas. However, the clinical prognostic value of these genetic tests in human gliomas is not fully understood. Methods: We included glioma patients who accepted genetic testing including IDH, MGMT and 1p/19q at Xiangya ...

The genetic features of isocitrate dehydrogenase-wild-type (IDH-wt) lower-grade gliomas (LGGs; World Health Organization grades II and III) are not well defined. This study analyzed the genetic and other features of IDH-wt LGGs to develop a subclassification that can be used to predict their prognosis. Clinical, histopathological, and genetic features of 35 cases of diffuse IDH-wt astrocytoma and IDH-wt anaplastic astrocytoma were analyzed. The following genetic factors were examined: mutations ...

Pterostilbene (PTS) is a phenolic compound with diverse pharmacologic activities. However, its potential for inhibiting obesity-related colorectal cancer (CRC) remains unclear. Our study evaluated the mechanism of inhibitory effects of PTS on adipocyte conditioned-medium (aCM)-induced malignant transformation in HT-29 colorectal adenocarcinoma cells. The results demonstrated that PTS could downregulate the expression of aCM-induced fatty acid-binding protein 5 (FABP5) and prometastatic factors s...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Image-based classification of lower-grade glioma molecular subtypes has substantial prognostic value. Diffusion tensor imaging has shown promise in lower-grade glioma subtyping but currently requires lengthy, nonstandard acquisitions. Our goal was to investigate lower-grade glioma classification using a machine learning technique that estimates fractional anisotropy from accelerated diffusion MR imaging scans containing only 3 diffusion-encoding directions. MATERIALS AND ...
