Gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA)is one of the few malignancies with unexplained reasons that have increased sharply in developed countries. The purpose of this review was to determine the pathways in GCA to identify new biomarker. So by comparing gene expression in GCA group with normal control identified important pathways. Gene expression data were extracted from the beforehand investigations then differentially expressed genes utilized in DAVID program to explorer and find related pathways. Our findings contain 367 gene names. Out of these 367 proteins, 199 were found to be exclusively expressed in GCA; whereas 168 proteins were detected down-regulated or silenced. The GCA associated diseases based on the differently expressed genes made up of diseases pathway related colorectal cancer, small cell lung cancer, breast cancer and H. pylori infection stomach cancer. KEGG pathways related to GCA contained cell cycle, p53 signaling pathway, DNA replication, toll-like receptor signaling pathway and some other diseases. The GO-discovered categories also demonstrated most biological process and molecular function related to cancer. Up until now, there is no report to introduce influential biomarkers in GCA so, the deregulated genes identified in GCA patterns might be helpful for diagnosis, prognosis and therapies for gastric cancer but validation of these biomarkers is necessary.
