The positive rate of MGMT autoantibody to 20 peptides in glioma groups is compared with healthy individuals, the positive rate of MGMT-02 (45%), MGMT-04 (27%), MGMT-07 (21%), MGMT-10 (13%), and MGMT-18 (24%) were significantly elevated in patients with glioma.
In this study, we investigated the relationship between SWI features and glioma grades, and the expression of key molecular markers isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1), O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT), and 1p19q.
Then, we also analyzed the impact of TERT promoter mutations, PTEN deletion, EGFR amplification and MGMT promoter methylation in diagnosis, prognosis and response to therapy in glioma molecular subgroup.
This study aimed to build a radiomics signature based on <sup>18</sup>F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) for noninvasive measurement of the MGMT promoter methylation status in glioma.
Resveratrol sensitized TMZ-induced glioma cell apoptosis by repressing the activation of the Wnt signaling pathway and downregulating MGMT expression, which may confer new thoughts to the chemotherapy of glioma.
Furthermore, VPA may also promote the methylation of the MGMT promoter to silence MGMT expression in glioma cells, which may be an important mechanism through which VPA enhances the efficacy of TMZ and ACNU in targeting glioma stem cells.
In addition, transferrin nanoparticles encapsulating temozolomide have the potential of a promising anti-tumor strategy against glioma of the O6-methylguanine-DNA-methyltransferase gene promoter methylation.
This meta-analysis suggests that glioma susceptibility is associated with rs1799782 and rs25487 of X-ray repair complementing defective repair in Chinese hamster cells 1 (XRCC1), rs1805377 of XRCC4, rs1800067 of excision repair cross-complementing rodent repair deficiency complementation group 4 (ERCC4) and rs3212986 of ERCC1 in Asian population, and rs12917 of O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) and rs1136410 of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 (PARP1) in Caucasian population.
Although methylguanine-DNA-methyltransferase (MGMT) plays an important role in resistance to temozolomide (TMZ) in glioma, 40% of gliomas with MGMT inactivation are still resistant to TMZ.The underlying mechanism is not clear.
