    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...

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...

    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...

L.; Turnbull, Douglass M.; Plusa, Stefan M // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Nov2003, Vol. 112 Issue 9, p1351 

    The mitochondrial genome encodes 13 essential subunits of the respiratory chain and has remarkable genetics based on uniparental inheritance. Within human populations, the mitochondrial genome has a high rate of sequence divergence with multiple polymorphic variants and thus has played a major...

    Mixed Cryptosporidium infections were detected in 7 of 21 patients with a diagnosis of rare Cryptosporidium canis or C. felis infections; 6 patients were infected with 2 Cryptosporidium spp. and 1 patient with 3 species. Mixed infections may occur more frequently than previously believed and...

    Background: Mutations in a gene encoding a novel protein of unknown function-the ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein 1 gene (GDAP1)-are associated with the autosomal recessive Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4A (CMT4A).Objective: To investigate the...

  • Genomewide pattern of synonymous nucleotide substitution in two complete genomes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Hughes, Austin L.; Friedman, Robert; Murray, Megan // Emerging Infectious Diseases;Nov2002, Vol. 8 Issue 11, p1342 

    Comparison of the pattern of synonymous nucleotide substitution between two complete genomes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis at 3298 putatively orthologous loci showed a mean percent difference per synonymous site of 0.000328 0.000022. Although 80.5% of loci showed no synonymous or nonsynonymous...
