SGC Open Notebook Project to Characterize the HMTase NSD3
Exp026 Objective: NSD3 is frequently amplified as part of the 8p11-12 focal amplification in several types of cancer. Here we set out to explore the gene expression profiles of NSD3 amplified versus non-amplified lung squamous cancer samples from the TCGA. However, because this event takes place in the context of a focal amplification we will also compare samples with high versus low NSD3 expression. The goal of this experiment is to identify putative oncogenic signalling pathways NSD3 may regulate, as well as inform on the biological role of this protein in the context of gene expression.
