Hide Abstract
This article aimed to investigate the hypermethylation of promoter regions of tumor suppressor genes, such as death-associated protein kinase (DAPK) and p16, in vulvar lichen sclerosus (LS).

Chemo-resistant protein expression pattern of glioblastoma cells (A172) to perillyl alcohol.

Hide Abstract
Glioblastoma multiform (GBM) is by far the most malignant glioma. We have introduced a new treatment for GBMs that comprises the inhalation of a naturally occurring terpene with chemotherapeutic properties known as perillyl alcohol (POH). Clinical trial results on recurrent GBM patients showed that POH extends the average life by more than eight months, temporarily slows tumor growth, and in some cases even decreases tumor size. After approximately seven months, the tumor continues to grow and leads to a dismal prognosis. To investigate how these tumors become resistant to POH, we generated an A172 human glioblastoma cell culture tolerant to 0.06 mM of POH (A172r). We used Multidimensional Protein Identification Technology (MudPIT) to compare the protein expression profile of A172r cells to the established glioblastoma A172 cell line. Our results include a list of identified proteins unique to either the resistant or the nonresistant cell line. These proteins are related to cellular growth, negative apoptosis regulation, Ras pathway, and other key cellular functions that could be connected to the underlying mechanisms of resistance.

Hide Abstract
The human papillomavirus (HPV) is a DNA virus, which belongs to papillomaviridae family, being of low and high risk, which infect the skin and mucous membranes and can induce benign and malign tumor formation. In the oral mucosa they have been associated with oral papilloma, focal epithelial hyperplasia, leucoplakia and oral neoplasia.

Dynamic proteomic overview of glioblastoma cells (A172) exposed to perillyl alcohol.

Hide Abstract
Perillyl alcohol (POH) is a naturally occurring terpene and a promising chemotherapeutic agent for glioblastoma multiform; yet, little is known about its molecular effects. Here we present results of a semi-quantitative proteomic analysis of A172 cells exposed to POH for different time-periods (1, 10, 30, 60, 4h, and 24h). The analysis identified more than 4000 proteins; which were clustered using PatternLab for proteomics and then linked to Ras signaling, tissue homeostasis, induction of apoptosis, metallopeptidase activity, and ubiquitin-protein ligase activity. Our results make available one of the most complete protein repositories for the A172. Moreover, we detected the phosphorylation of GSK3beta (Glycogen synthase kinase) and the inhibition of ERKs (extracellular signal regulated kinase) phosphorylation after 10, which suggests a new mechanism of POHs activation for apoptosis.

Analysis of GSTM1 and GSTT1 polymorphisms in circulating plasma DNA of lung cancer patients.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The concentration of free circulating plasma DNA and the genetic profile of patients suffering from various types of tumors were studied in an effort to increase the understanding of the biomarkers and genetic factors involved in predisposing an individual to lung cancer (LC). The polymorphic inheritance of glutathione S-transferases (GST), which modulate the effects of various genotoxic agents, especially those derived from benzo[a]pyrene, one of the main tobacco carcinogens, has been implicated in both cancer risk and prognostics. We investigated gene polymorphisms in the blood serum of patients previously diagnosed at the Pneumology Division of the Clementino Fraga Filho University Hospital of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and in buccal swab samples of exfoliated oral cells obtained from a population of healthy controls. The distribution of GSTM1 and GSTT1 polymorphisms was not significantly different between LC patients and the controls, suggesting that GSTM1 and GSTT1 alone or in combination are not independent risk factors for LC. However, a close relationship between smoking status and LC was clearly demonstrated. The most significant risk for LC concerning tobacco smoking was found in the association of null genotypes for GSTM1 and GSTT1 (P < 0.0001).

The prevalence of human cytomegalovirus DNA in gliomas of Brazilian patients.
Mem. Inst. Oswaldo Cruz
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Members of the Herpesviridae family have been implicated in a number of tumours in humans. At least 75% of the human population has had contact with cytomegalovirus (HCMV). In this work, we screened 75 Brazilian glioma biopsies for the presence of HCMV DNA sequences. HCMV DNA was detected in 36% (27/75) of the biopsies. It is possible that HCMV could be a co-factor in the evolution of brain tumours.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
