M. E.; Ralston, S. H.; Teti, A. // Calcified Tissue International;Jan2004, Vol. 74 Issue 1, p42 

    A 16-year-old male patient with type II autosomal dominant benign osteopetrosis (ADO) was genotyped and found to harbor a novel mutation in exon 25 of the gene encoding for the osteoclast-specific chloride channel, CLCN7, inherited from the father, who was asymptomatic. The patient had normal...

    The PTEN/MMAC1 gene at 10q23.3, which has dual specific phosphatase activity, is a novel tumor suppressor gene candidate. Various kinds of tumors have mutations in this gene, including glioblastoma, endometrial carcinoma and prostate cancer. We examined 29 cases of primary non-Hodgkin's lymphoma...

  • The molecular anatomy of the FIP1L1-PDGFRA fusion gene. Walz, C.; Score, J.; Mix, J.; Cilloni, D.; Roche-Lestienne, C.; Yeh, R.-F.; Wiemels, J. L.; Ottaviani, E.; Erben, P.; Hochhaus, A.; Baccarani, M.; Grimwade, D.; Preudhomme, C.; Apperley, J.; Martinelli, G.; Saglio, G.; Cross, N. C. P.; Reiter, A.; European LeukemiaNet // Leukemia (08876924);Feb2009, Vol. 23 Issue 2, p271 

    The FIP1L1-PDGFRA fusion gene is a recurrent molecular abnormality in patients with eosinophilia-associated myeloproliferative neoplasms. We characterized FIP1L1-PDGFRA junction sequences from 113 patients at the mRNA (n=113) and genomic DNA (n=85) levels. Transcript types could be assigned in...

  • Identification of a novel molecular partner of the E2A gene in childhood leukemia. Brambillasca, F; Mosna, G; Colombo, M; Rivolta, A; Caslini, C; Minuzzo, M; Giudici, G; Mizzi, L; Biondi, A; Privitera, E // Leukemia (08876924);Mar99, Vol. 13 Issue 3, p369 

    The 'promiscuous' E2A gene, at 19p13.3, is fused with two different molecular partners, PBX1 and HLF, following two chromosome translocations recurrent in childhood pre-B ALL. We have identified a novel gene, FB1, by virtue of its fusion with E2A and by a combination of molecular techniques. FB1...

  • NIPAL4/ichthyin is expressed in the granular layer of human epidermis and mutated in two Pakistani families with autosomal recessive ichthyosis. Wajid, Muhammad; Kurban, Mazen; Shimomura, Yutaka; Christiano, Angela M. // Dermatology (10188665);Jan2010, Vol. 220 Issue 1, p8 

    Background: Autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI) can be divided into 3 types including lamellar ichthyosis (OMIM 242304), nonbullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma (OMIM 242100) and harlequin ichthyosis (OMIM 242500). The last type is uncommon since newborns with...

  • A methylated oligonucleotide inhibits IGF2 expression and enhances survival in a model of hepatocellular carcinoma. Yao, Xiaoming; Hu, Ji-Fan; Daniels, Mark; Shiran, Hadas; Zhou, Xiangjun; Yan, Huifan; Lu, Hongqi; Zeng, Zhilan; Wang, Qingxue; Li, Tao; Hoffman, Andrew R // Journal of Clinical Investigation;1/1/2003, Vol. 111 Issue 1, p265 

    IGF-II is a mitogenic peptide that has been implicated in hepatocellular oncogenesis. Since the silencing of gene expression is frequently associated with cytosine methylation at cytosine-guanine (CpG) dinucleotides, we designed a methylated oligonucleotide (MON1) complementary to a region...

  • Typhoid fever and genetic polymorphisms at the natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 1. Dunstan, Sarah J.; Dougan, Gordon; Ho, Vo An; Duc, Chau Minh; Lanh, Mai Ngoc; Phuong, Cao Xuan Thanh; Luxemburger, Christine; Wain, John; House, Deborah; Dudbridge, Frank; Peacock, Christopher S.; Blackwell, Jenefer M.; Parry, Christopher; Farrar, Jeremy; Hien, Tran Tinh; Dunstan, S J; Ho, V A; Duc, C M; Lanh, M N; Phuong, C X // Journal of Infectious Diseases;4/1/2001, Vol. 183 Issue 7, p1156 

    Control of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. typhimurium) infection in the mouse model of typhoid fever is critically dependent on the natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 1 (Nramp1). In this study, we examined the role of genetic polymorphisms in the human homologue,...
