High methylation of the SEPT9 gene in Chinese colorectal cancer patients

X. L. Su, Wang, Y. F., Li, S. J., Zhang, F., and Cui, H. W., High methylation of the SEPT9 gene in Chinese colorectal cancer patients, vol. 13, pp. 2513-2520, 2014.

Methylation of the septin 9 gene (SEPT9) occurs in higher frequency in colorectal cancer (CRC) compared to control samples, which suggests that SEPT9 methylation is a useful biomarker for screening CRC. However, the methylation status of SEPT9 in Chinese CRC patients is scarcely reported. In the present study, SEPT9 methylation was tested in CRC tissues obtained from a Chinese population and correlations with pathological characteristics were investigated.
