Only one falls into a haplotype previously associated with other cancer types (rs7705526, in TERT intron 1), and this SNP has been shown to alter TERT promoter activity. One of the novel associations (rs13174814) maps to a second region in the TERT promoter and the other (rs62329728) is in the promoter region of CLPTM1L; neither are correlated with previously reported cancer-associated SNPs. Using TCGA RNASeq data, we found significantly increased expression of both TERT and CLPTM1L in endometrial cancer tissue compared with normal tissue (TERTP = 1.5 × 10−18, CLPTM1LP = 1.5 × 10−19). Our study thus reports a novel endometrial cancer risk locus and expands the spectrum of cancer types associated with genetic variation at 5p15, further highlighting the importance of this region for cancer susceptibility.]]> Wed 11 Apr 2018 09:49:25 AEST ]]> Polymorphisms in a putative enhancer at the 10q21.2 breast cancer risk locus regulate NRBF2 expression https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:28231 Wed 01 Aug 2018 14:52:20 AEST ]]>
