Numerous cytogenetic and molecular studies of breast cancer have identified frequent loss of heterozygosity (LOH) of the long arm of human chromosome 16. On the basis of these data, the likely locations of breast cancer tumor suppressor genes are bands 16q22.1 and 16q24.3. We have mapped the CBFA2T3 (MTG16) gene, previously cloned as a fusion partner of the(More)
Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) of chromosome 16q24.3 is a common genetic alteration observed in invasive ductal and lobular breast carcinomas. We constructed a physical map and generated genomic DNA sequence data spanning 2.4 Mb in this region. Detailed in silico and in vitro analyses of the genomic sequence data enabled the identification of 104 genes. It(More)
The CBFA2T3 locus located on the human chromosome region 16q24.3 is frequently deleted in breast tumors. CBFA2T3 gene expression levels are aberrant in breast tumor cell lines and the CBFA2T3B isoform is a potential tumor suppressor gene. In the absence of identified mutations to further support a role for this gene in tumorigenesis, we explored whether the(More)
