Abstract

Previous studies of the roles of special AT‑rich sequence binding protein‑1 (SATB1) in the development and progression of cancer have suggested that SATB1 promotes cancer cell metastasis. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the role of SATB1 in the progression and prognosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). ESCC tissues were collected from 102 patients and SATB1 mRNA expression was measured by reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The association between expression of SATB1 mRNA with clinicopathological features and prognosis was assessed, and the prognosis of ESCC was evaluated using Kaplan‑Meier survival curves. In the 102 ESCC tissues, SATB1 mRNA expression correlated with the clinical tumor node metastasis stage (P<0.05), but not with any other clinicopathological features (including age, gender, tumor differentiation grade, adjuvant radio/chemotherapy, or the consumption of alcohol and use of cigarettes) (P>0.05). The disease‑free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) of patients with high SATB1 expression was decreased compared with those with low SATB1 expression. The present study indicated that SATB1 mRNA expression was associated with the postoperative recurrent and poor prognosis in ESCC. SATB1 may be a novel marker for predicting the recurrent and worse prognosis of ESCC.
