ZNF217 is a candidate oncogene located at 20q13, a chromosomal region frequently amplified in breast cancers. The precise mechanisms involved in ZNF217 pro-survival function are currently unknown, and utmost importance is given to deciphering the role of ZNF217 in cancer therapy response. We provide evidence that stable overexpression of ZNF217 in(More)
The Krüppel-like zinc finger protein ZNF217 is a candidate oncogene in breast cancer. In this study, we showed that high levels of expression of ZNF217 mRNA are associated with poor prognosis and the development of metastases in breast cancer. Overexpression of ZNF217 in breast cancer cells stimulated migration and invasion in vitro and promoted the(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) regulate a variety of fundamental cellular processes. CDK10 stands out as one of the last orphan CDKs for which no activating cyclin has been identified and no kinase activity revealed. Previous work has shown that CDK10 silencing increases ETS2 (v-ets erythroblastosis virus E26 oncogene homolog 2)-driven activation of the(More)
BACKGROUND Inherited cardiac conduction disease is a rare bradyarrhythmia associated with mutations in various genes that affect action potential propagation. It is often characterized by isolated conduction disturbance of the His-Purkinje system, but it is rarely described as a syndromic form. OBJECTIVES The authors sought to identify the genetic defect(More)
In this study, we discuss and apply a novel and efficient algorithm for learning a local Bayesian network model in the vicinity of the ZNF217 oncogene from breast cancer microarray data without having to decide in advance which genes have to be included in the learning process. ZNF217 is a candidate oncogene located at 20q13, a chromosomal region frequently(More)
For the last 10 years, applying new sequencing technologies to thousands of whole exomes has revealed the high variability of the human genome. Extreme caution should thus be taken to avoid misinterpretation when associating rare genetic variants to disease susceptibility. The Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a rare inherited arrhythmia disease associated with(More)
BACKGROUND In Brugada syndrome (BrS), spontaneous type 1 electrocardiogram (ECG) is an established risk marker for fatal arrhythmias whereas drug-induced type 1 ECG shows a relatively benign prognosis. No study has analyzed the prognosis of fever-induced type 1 ECG (F-type1) in a large BrS cohort. OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to assess the(More)
BACKGROUND Sodium-channel blocker challenge (SCBC) is frequently performed to unmask Brugada syndrome. OBJECTIVE We aim to identify predictors of positivity and complications of SCBC in the setting of familial screening of Brugada syndrome. METHODS All consecutive patients from 2000 to 2014 who benefit from a sodium-channel blocker and belong to a(More)
BACKGROUND Progressive cardiac conduction disease (PCCD) is one of the most common cardiac conduction disturbances. It has been causally related to rare mutations in several genes including SCN5A, SCN1B, TRPM4, LMNA and GJA5. METHODS AND RESULTS In this study, by applying targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) in 95 unrelated patients with PCCD, we(More)
Despite major progress in molecular and phenotypic characterization of primary electrical disorders, many (aborted) sudden cardiac deaths (SCDs) occur in young victims without identifiable abnormalities (1). This study aimed to describe the use of mental stress test (MST) to identify catecholamine-induced QT prolongation (CIQTP) in SCD familial screening.(More)
