Cytogenetic analysis has defined specific translocations associated with two of the most common small round cell tumors of childhood, t(11;22) in Ewing's sarcoma and t(2;13) in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. We and others have previously demonstrated the diagnostic utility of a reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay for the detection of(More)
RATIONALE Ventricular arrhythmias often arise from the Purkinje-myocyte junction and are a leading cause of sudden cardiac death. Notch activation reprograms cardiac myocytes to an induced Purkinje-like state characterized by prolonged action potential duration and expression of Purkinje-enriched genes. OBJECTIVE To understand the mechanism by which(More)
Rationale: Notch signaling programs cardiac conduction during development, and in the adult ventricle, injury-induced Notch reactivation initiates global transcriptional and epigenetic changes. Objective: To determine whether Notch reactivation may stably alter atrial ion channel gene expression and arrhythmia inducibility. Methods and Results: To model an(More)
