Abstract

Genomic alterations have been identified in lung cancer tissues and reported in numerous studies. To analyze genomic aberrations in lung cancer patients, we used array comparative genomic hybridization (array CGH) in 14 squamous cell lung carcinoma (SqC) tissues. Copy number gain and loss in chromosomal regions were detected, and the corresponding genes were confirmed by real time PCR. Several frequently altered loci, including gain of 3q (36% of samples), were found. The most frequently identified losses were found at 14q32.33 (21% of samples). The relative degree of chromosomal change was analyzed using log2 ratios. High-level DNA amplifications (>0.8 log2 ratio) were detected at 20 regions in 1p, 2q, 3q, 4q, 6q, 7p, 8q, 9p, 10q, 12q, 14q and 19p. We found that the fold change levels were highest at EVI1 (3q26.2), LPP (3q27-28) and FHF-1 (3q28) gene loci. Our results show that array CGH is a useful tool for identification of gene alteration in lung cancer, and that the above-mentioned genes might represent potential candidate genes for pathogenesis and diagnosis of lung cancer.
