The non-toxin 50 kD C-terminus peptide of the heavy chain of tetanus H(c) contains the ganglioside binding domain of tetanus toxin (TTX). H(c) retains much of the capacity of tetanus toxin for binding internalization and transport by neurons. For this reason tetanus H(c) has been studied as a vector for delivery of therapeutic proteins to neurons. We(More)
Anophthalmia/microphthalmia (A/M) is a genetically heterogeneous birth defect for which the etiology is unknown in more than 50% of patients. We used exome sequencing with the ACE Exome(TM) (Personalis, Inc; 18 cases) and UCSF Genomics Core (21 cases) to sequence 28 patients with A/M and four patients with varied developmental eye defects. In the 28(More)
Normal and cancer cell line proteomes were profiled using high throughput mass spectrometry techniques. Application of protein-level and peptide-level sample fractionation combined with LC-MS/MS analysis enabled identification of 2235 unmodified proteins representing a broad range of functional and compartmental classes. An iterative multistep search(More)
Whole exome sequencing is increasingly used for the clinical evaluation of genetic disease, yet the variation of coverage and sensitivity over medically relevant parts of the genome remains poorly understood. Several sequencing-based assays continue to provide coverage that is inadequate for clinical assessment. Using sequence data obtained from the NA12878(More)
Proteome comparison of cell lines derived from cancer and normal breast epithelium provide opportunities to identify differentially expressed proteins and pathways associated with specific phenotypes. We employed 16O/18O peptide labeling, FT-ICR MS, and an accurate mass and time (AMT) tag strategy to simultaneously compare the relative abundance of hundreds(More)
Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a rare disorder characterized by cerebrovascular occlusion and development of hemorrhage-prone collateral vessels. Approximately 10-12% of cases are familial, with a presumed low penetrance autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. Diagnosis commonly occurs only after clinical presentation. The recent identification of the RNF213(More)
In case-control studies of rare Mendelian disorders and complex diseases, the power to detect variant and gene-level associations of a given effect size is limited by the size of the study sample. Paradoxically, low statistical power may increase the likelihood that a statistically significant finding is also a false positive. The prioritization of variants(More)
