The metastasis-suppressor nme gene (also called nm23), first identified in murine melanoma cells, exists as two forms in human: nme1 and nme2. However, only the lack of expression of nme1 has been related to distant metastasis appearance in human breast cancer. The aim of this work was first to raise specific antibodies to allow the analysis of Nme1 and(More)
Trichorhinophalangeal syndrome type I (TRPS I) is a rare autosomal dominant syndrome caused by haploinsufficiency of TRPS1 due to point mutations or deletions. Here, we report the first familial TRPS I due to a t(8;13)(q23.3;q21.31) translocation breakpoint <100 kb from the 5′ end of TRPS1. Based on the additional abnormalities observed exclusively in the(More)
Analphoid supernumerary marker chromosomes (aSMC) constitute one of the smallest groups of SMC, and are characterized by a centromeric constriction but no detectable alpha-satellite DNA. These marker chromosomes cannot be properly identified by conventional banding techniques alone, and molecular cytogenetic methods are necessary for a detailed(More)
This article presents a dataset proving the simultaneous presence of a 5'UTR-truncated PDHA1 mRNA and a full-length PDHA2 mRNA in the somatic cells of a PDC-deficient female patient and all members of her immediate family (parents and brother). We have designed a large set of primer pairs in order to perform detailed RT-PCR assays allowing the clear(More)
