ABSTRACT
Objective To investigate the methylation status of the CpG island of tumor suppressor gene PCDH 8 and its clinical significance in bladder cancer tissues .Methods 79 cases of primary bladder transitional cell carcinoma and 20 cases of normal blad-der mucosa tissue were collected ,and then the promoter methylation status of PCDH8 gene was examined by methylation specific PCR (MSP) ,and correlated with clinical pathological data for statistical analysis .Results We found that no PCDH8 gene methyla-tion was detected in 20 normal bladder mucous tissues ,while PCDH8 promoter methylation was found in 44 cases of total 79 prima-ry bladder transitional cell carcinoma tissues ,the methylation rate was 55 .7% ,and the difference was statistical significant between normal bladder mucous group and bladder cancer group (P0 .05) ,the methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in tumors whose diameter more than 3 cm was 72 .7% ,while the methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in tumors whose diameter less than 3 cm was 43 .5% ,and the difference was significant(P< 0 .05) .The methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in the papillary tumor was 48 .2% ,while the methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in the unpapillary tumor was 73 .9% ,and the difference was signifi-cant(P<0 .05) .The methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in recurrent tumors was 71 .1% ,while the methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in primary tumors was 35 .3% ,and the difference was significant(P<0 .05) .The methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in tumors with G1 ,G2 phase was 43 .4% ,while the methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in tumors with G3 was 80 .8% ,and the difference was signifi-cant(P<0 .05) .The methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in the tumors with Ta T1 phase was 43 .7% ,while the methylation rate of PCDH8 gene in tumors with T2 T4 was 74 .2% ,and the difference was significant(P<0 .05) .Our result suggested that PCDH8 gene methylation was associated with tumor growth ,morphology ,recurrence ,poor differentiation and tumor invasion (P<0 .05) . Conclusion The promoter methylation of tumor suppressor gene PCDH8 is closely correlated with the occurrence and development of primary bladder transitional cell carcinoma .The promoter methylation of PCDH8 gene could be used as molecular markers of ear-ly diagnosis ,monitoring and prognosis biomarker in bladder cancer .
