BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to find a novel molecular target based on chromosomal alteration and array-based gene expression analyses in bladder cancer (BC). We investigated a cancer testis antigen, LY6K, which is located on chromosome 8q24.3.

METHODS: Five BC cell lines were subjected to high-resolution array-comparative genomic hybridisation with 244 000 probes. The expression levels of LY6K mRNA were evaluated in BC cell lines and clinical BC specimens by real-time reverse transcription-PCR. The cell lines were subjected to fluorescence in situ hybridisation of LY6K. Cell viability was evaluated by cell growth, wound healing, and matrigel invasion assays.

RESULTS: Typical gained loci (P
CONCLUSION: Upregulation of the oncogenic LY6K gene located on the gained locus at 8q24.3 may contribute BC development.
