Introduction: The changes in the level of SEPT9 gene promoter methylation can contribute to the formation of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of changes in the level of SEPT9 gene promoter methylation in the esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
Methods: In the present case-control study, we collected 75 paraffin blocks of esophageal cancer tissues and 75 paraffin blocks healthy tissues, which were referred to the Noor-E-Nejat and Tabriz International Hospitals during 2013-2017. After DNA extraction and treatment with sodium metabisulfite, the changes of SEPT9 gene promoter methylation assessed using high resolution melting (HRM) technique. The data were analyzed by SPSS 22 and Chi-square test.
Results: Our findings did not show a statistically significant difference between the changes of SEPT9 gene promoter methylation in cancer tissues compared to the healthy tissues (P=0.106).
Conclusion: This study shows that SEPT9 gene promoter methylation cannot contribute to the esophageal squamous cell carcinoma cancerogenesis
