Tumour Angiogenesis Regulation and Cancer Genetics
Dr. Dixit's research interest is to understand the genetics and molecular biology of various human genetic diseases, especially cancer.
Abnormal growth of new blood vessels plays an important role in many diseases, including cancer. To treat cancer, various potential anti-angiogenesis drugs have been tested with limited success. Blocking just one regulatory pathway may not be enough. Till date, all these angiogenic-switch regulatory molecules and their mechanism are not known. In order to do that, my research group is interested towards the validation and elucidation of the molecular mechanism of putative angiogenic regulators. We are also interested in finding out the role and molecular mechanism of these newly identified angiogenesis regulators, in tumorigenesis and tumor angiogenesis. We started with FRG1 (a putative angiogenic regulator) and further research led to identification of EEF1A2 and IQGAP2, as its interacting partners. Currently, we have established FRG1 to have reduced expression in cancer and its effect on various properties of cells (proliferation, migration and invasion). We found that IQGAP2 expression is also reduced but the expression of EEF1A2 is increased in tumor tissues. We discovered the mechanism of, how FRG1 and IQGAP2 behave as tumor suppressor genes but EEF1A2 behaves as an oncogene. Our data suggests that all three genes may impart tumorigenic potential by affecting angiogenesis.
Another major area of our research includes understanding molecular mechanism of gallbladder cancer and establishment of genetic risk factors in Indian population. So far, we have
found that SNPs present in MMP14 affect it’s expression and might be responsible for altered risk in the population of Odisha.
