#422 The Somatostatin Analogue Octreotide Inhibits Growth of Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells by Triggering Janus Faced Proteins
Introduction: Octreotide is a somatostatin analogue, which improves the management of neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients. Octreotide acts through somatostatin receptors (SSTRs). However, the molecular mechanisms leading to successful therapy or curative effects are largely unknown, particularly when SSTRs levels are low or absent.

#929 Prognostic Role of Smoking in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NET)
Introduction: Large retrospective series identified several prognostic factors for GEP-NET such as sex, race, age, primary localization, stage or tumor grade. Several studies suggested a prognostic role of smoking in many cancer types. However, no data has been reported in GEP-NET.

#1566 Splicing Dysregulation Impacts on Neuroendocrine Tumors: Evidence from Altered Spliceosoma Components and Somatostatin and Ghrelin Systems.
Introduction: Splicing is an emerging cancer hallmark influencing multiple tumor cell (dys)functions. We have shown that aberrantly spliced variants of somatostatin receptor subtype 5 (sst5TMD4) and of the pleiotropic neuropeptide ghrelin (in1ghrelin) are linked to poor prognosis in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEPNETs) and may enhance their aggressiveness features.

#1772 Expression of Truncated Functional Subtype 5 Somatostatin Receptor Variant (sst5TMD4) in GEP-NETs and Association with Relevant Pathways Involved in NET Tumorigenesis
Introduction: Sst5TMD4, which is derived from a non-canonical splicing process of sst5 receptor, is overexpressed in several endocrine tumors and associated with a worse prognosis.

#1875 Potential Anti-Tumor Activity of Biguanides and Statins in Neuroendocrine Tumor Cells
Introduction: Recent studies have suggested that biguanides and statins have beneficial effects on various cancer types; however, the precise effects and the molecular mechanisms underlying this pathophysiological association are still not well understood in neuroendocrine tumor (NETs).

#1906 High Prevalence of the c.1546delC Germline Mutation in MEN1 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant disease predisposing to pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). Even though its genetics is relatively well known, specific phenotype-genotype correlations remain unproven at present. The Region of Murcia in southeast Spain is one of the areas with the highest incidence of MEN1

#2116 Ghrelin O-Acyltransferase (GOAT) Enzyme and Ghrelin Receptor GHSR1a as Putative Prognosis Markers and Therapeutic Targets in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Specific components of ghrelin-system are associated with tumor development/ progression. We have previously described the presence of this system in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) but clinical-molecular correlations have not been elucidated yet.

#2141 Potential Role of SST5TMD4-Derived Peptides in the Malignancy of Neuroendocrine Tumors and Other Endocrine-Related Cancer Cells
Introduction: Extracellular fragments derived from membrane receptors can play relevant functional roles in certain tumoral pathologies and could provide novel diagnostic or therapeutic tools. We have identified a novel truncated somatostatin receptor type 5 variant, sst5TMD4, which is overexpressed and functionally active in different endocrine-related cancers, including neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Interestingly, sst5TMD4 has 4 transmembrane domains and its C-terminal tail is consequently exposed towards the extracellular matrix, and could, therefore, be the substrate for proteolytic enzymes.
