Abstract: AIM: To evaluate for the first time the protein and mRNA expression of 14-3-3 epsilon in gastric carcinogenesis.METHODS: 14-3-3 epsilon protein expression was determined by western blotting, and mRNA expression was examined by real-time quantitative RT-PCR in gastric tumors and their matched non-neoplastic gastric tissue samples.RESULTS: Authors observed a significant reduction of 14-3-3 epsilon protein expression in gastric cancer (GC) samples compared to their matched non-neoplastic tissue, Reduced levels of 14-3-3 epsilon were also associated with diffuse-type GC and early-onset of this pathology. Our data suggest that reduced 14-3-3 epsilon may have a role in gastric carcinogenesis process.CONCLUSION: Our results reveal that the reduced 14-3-3 epsilon expression in GC and investigation of 14-3-3 epsilon interaction partners may help to elucidate the carcinogenesis process.
