It is difficult to identify genes that predispose to prostate cancer due to late age at diagnosis, presence of phenocopies within high-risk pedigrees and genetic complexity. A genome-wide scan of large, high-risk pedigrees from Utah has provided evidence for linkage to a locus on chromosome 17p. We carried out positional cloning and mutation screening(More)
Human BRG1 is a component of the evolutionarily conserved SWI-SNF chromatin remodeling complex. BRG1 has been implicated in growth control through its interaction with the tumor suppressor pRb and may consequently serve as a negative regulator of proliferation. Postulating that BRG1 may itself be a tumor suppressor gene, we screened a panel of tumor cell(More)
Human CDC14A is a dual-specificity phosphatase that shares sequence similarity with the recently identified tumor suppressor, MMAC1/PTEN/TEP1. By radiation hybrid mapping, we localized CDC14A to chromosome band 1p21, a region that has been shown to exhibit loss of heterozygosity in highly differentiated breast carcinoma and malignant mesothelioma. We have(More)
BACKGROUND Two mutations in HFE, G845A (amino acid substitution C282Y) and C187G (H63D), are associated with hereditary hemochromatosis. We developed and validated a novel method, linked linear amplification (LLA), for detection of these two mutations. METHODS Two segments of HFE were amplified by a multiplex LLA reaction that generated biotinylated LLA(More)
