2 Solid tumour/cancer [ICD-11: 2A00-2F9Z]
3 Esophageal cancer [ICD-11: 2B70]
4 Lung cancer [ICD-11: 2C25]
5 Multiple myeloma [ICD-11: 2A83]
6 Synovial sarcoma [ICD-11: 2B5A]
7 Melanoma [ICD-11: 2C30]
Immunogenic protein. Its aberrant re-expression is induced by molecular mechanisms including: DNA demethylation, histone post-translational modification, and microRNA-mediated regulation. The effect of DNA demethylation is evident by the capability of demethylating agents, like 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine, to induce the re-expression of NY-ESO-1 in tumour cells but not in normal epithelial cells.
