Abstract

The investigation of the cancer-associated structural and epigenetic changes in cell genome is a major approach for understanding mechanisms of cancerogenesis. To investigate these genome changes, novel technique of microarrays comprising NotI-linking genome clones was developed. Twenty eight samples from patients with cervical cancer were analyzed using NotI microarrays of human chromosome 3. Deletions, amplifications and methylation were detected for 109 out of 182 NotI clones with different frequency. Notably, 17 NotI-linking clones showed genomic changes in more than 35% of tumor samples investigated, which suggests involvement of genes associated with these clones in development of cervical cancer.
