Abstract

This study is to explore the roles of gene methylation of Notch1 and JAG1 in development of invasive ductal carcinoma of breast. Quantitative analysis the DNA methylation levels of Notch1 and JAG1 gene by the MassARRAY method in invasive ductal carcinoma of breast (IDC; n = 89), atypical ductal hyperplasia of breast (ADH; n = 11), and ordinary ductal hyperplasia of breast (UDH; n = 20). The expressions of JAG1 and Notch1 protein in four breast tissues were detected by immunohistochemistry SP method. (1) Positive expression rates of Notch1 protein in IDC and DCIS were 88.7 % (79/89) and 70.0 % (14/20), respectively, which were significantly higher than the levels in ADH (36.0 %, 4/11) and UDH (25.0 %, 5/20; P < 0.05). Notch1 protein expression was significant positively correlated with lymph node metastasis, pathological grades, and TNM stages of IDC. (2) Positive expression rates of JAG1 protein in IDC and DCIS were 89.9 % (80/89) and 75.0 % (15/20), respectively, which were significantly higher than those of ADH (45.0 %, 5/11) and UDH (30.0 %, 6/20; P < 0.05). JAG1 protein expression was significant positive correlation with lymph node metastasis, pathological grades and TNM stages of IDC. There is an overall hypomethylation alteration of Notch1 and JAG gene in IDC, with corresponding over-expression of Notch1 and JAG1 protein. This inverse correlation shows that the alteration of protein expression results from hypomethylation oncogene Notch1 and JAG1, and this change may play an important role in occurrence and progression of breast cancer.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 March 2016.
All research outputs
#11,577,762
of 13,029,776 outputs
Outputs from Medical Oncology
#532
of 754 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#222,462
of 265,399 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Medical Oncology
#14
of 21 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,029,776 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 754 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.7. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,399 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 21 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
