Funding amount
[In this study, in addition to conventional analysis based on RNA sequences and microRNA expression profiles, we will analyze metabolomics and introduce a new genome editing technology, the CRISPR library, into urothelial cancer cells. In this way, by conducting a multifaceted approach from many databases, we position the known GC resistance mechanism research, clarify the core GC resistance mechanism and explore the possibility of drug repositioning with existing drugs, It is a proposal to collect basic data for a new, inexpensive and effective treatment to overcome resistance.]

本研究では従来のRNAシーケンスやマイクロRNAの発現プロファイルに基づく解析に加えて、メタボロミクス解析や新しいゲノム編集技術であるCRISPRライブラリーを尿路上皮癌細胞に導入して解析する。これにより多くのデータベースから多面的アプローチを行うことで、既知の GC 耐性機序研究の位置づけを行うとともに、核心的なGC耐性機序を明らかにして既存薬によるドラッグリポジショニングの可能性を探り、安価で有効な新規の耐性克服治療のための基礎的データを収集する提案である。
