Sample text

In addition, the TCGA study found a high frequency of mutations in the PIK3R1 gene that encodes a PIK3 regulatory subunit. Both inactivation of PTEN or unrestrained PIK3 can lead to activation of AKT, which in turn leads to upregulation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a key regulator of apoptosis and cellular growth. Clinical trials with the mTOR inhibitors, temsirolimus, everolimus, and ridaforolimus, have shown promising single agent activity in the treatment of type I endometrial cancer (125–128).

Sporadic Endometrial Cancer Several approaches have been undertaken to evaluate the spectrum of genetic changes involved in the pathogenesis of sporadic endometrial cancers. Cytogenetic studies have described gross chromosomal alterations in endometrial cancers, including changes in the number of copies of specific chromosomes (84). Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) studies have demonstrated areas of chromosomal loss and gain in both endometrial cancers and atypical hyperplasias (85,86). The most common sites of chromosomal gain are 1q, 8q, 10p, and 10q (87–89).

B b Germline APC mutations are responsible for the adenomatous polyposis coli syndrome and somatic mutations are common in sporadic colon cancers, but APC mutations have not been described in endometrial cancers (51,129). The APC gene may be inactivated in some endometrial cancers because of promoter methylation. It has been shown that missense mutations in exon 3 of -catenin lead to the same end result—namely, abrogation of the ability of APC to induce -catenin degradation—which results in abnormal transcriptional activity.
