Sixteen families with inherited protein S deficiency and venous thromboembolism (VT) were screened for the presence of factor V (FV) Leiden mutation and for the G20210A allele in the prothrombin gene. While FV Leiden was not detected in any of the families, protein S deficiency and prothrombin mutation were present in five families. To assess the risk of VT(More)
The Protein S Italian Team (PROSIT) enrolled 79 protein S (PS) deficient families and found 38 PROS1 variations (19 novel) in 53 probands. Of these, 23 variants were selected for expression in'vitro, to evaluate their role as possible causative variants. Transient expression showed high secretion levels (>75%) for three variants, which were considered(More)
Resistance to activated protein C (APC) is a risk factor for venous thromboembolism also in absence of the FV Leiden mutation. To evaluate the influence of genetic factors on APC resistance, we evaluated the heritability of the APC resistance phenotype in 1,519 sib-parent pairs randomly selected from the VITA Project. After adjustment for known influencing(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Retroviral vectors are widely used to deliver foreign genes to hematopoietic stem cells (HSC). Improvement of marking protocols needs reporter genes to allow rapid detection and efficient selection of transduced cells. The great potential of EGFP and LNGFR as reporter systems prompted us to compare them simultaneously, using the(More)

We present the clinical application of a simple method for mixed chimerism analysis after allogeneic bone marrow (BM) or peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) transplant. A commercial kit which enables multiplex amplification of 9 highly polymorphic short tandem repeats in a single reaction tube was used. Molecular size and relative quantities of each amplified(More)
