A Role of TETs and 5-Hydroxymethylcytosine in SI-NETs Abstract #1645

Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) are rare and slow growing neoplasms. Identification of patients with worse outcome and of novel potential targets for therapy is important goals. The epigenetic mark 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC) is severely reduced in various cancers and was recently found by us to discriminate between parathyroid adenoma and carcinoma. A growth regulatory role of TET1 was also found.
Aim(s): To investigate 5-hmC level and TET protein expression in SI-NETs.
Materials and methods: Here we will present results from analyzing the 5-hydroxymethylome in a total of 38 primary SI-NETs and metastases from 19 patients, by immunohistochemistry, DNA immune-dot blot, and colony forming assays.

#820 ACTG2 Inhibits Growth and Is Epigenetically Repressed in Small Intestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) originate from the enterochromaffin cells in the ileum. Actin gamma smooth muscle 2 (ACTG2) is downregulated in lymph node metastases from SI-NETs. ACTG2 and microRNA-145 (miR-145) are aberrantly expressed in other cancers and ACTG2 can be induced by miRNA-145.
