Showe 29-gene signature for lung cancer



QA State: Curated
Short Name:
HGNC Name:

A 29-gene peripheral blood gene expression signature that separates patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tumors and patient controls with 86% accuracy (91% sensitivity, 80% specificity). Subjects were primarily smokers and former smokers. The 29 genes, minus one that did not match a gene symbol in the naming database: RSF1, DYRK2, YY1, C19orf12, THEM2, TRIO, MYADM, BAIAP2, ROGDI, DNAJB14, BRE, TMEM41A, C9orf64, FAM110A, PCNXL2, REST, C19orf62, C13orf27, ASCC3, SLC1A5, PTPLAD1, MRE11A, GTPBP10, SERPINI2, CREB1, CCDC53, USP48, ZSCAN2
