We performed genome-wide chemical mutagenesis of C57BL/6J mice using N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU). Electroretinographic screening of the third generation offspring revealed two G3 individuals from one G1 family with a normal a-wave but lacking the b-wave that we named nob4. The mutation was transmitted with a recessive mode of inheritance and mapped to(More)
Despite the importance of the long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in regulating biological functions, the expression profiles of lncRNAs in the sub-regions of the mammalian brain and neuronal populations remain largely uncharacterized. By analyzing RNASeq datasets, we demonstrate region specific enrichment of populations of lncRNAs and mRNAs in the mouse(More)
Mutations of genes in tumor cells of Triple Negative subset of Breast Cancer (TNBC) deregulate pathways of signal transduction. The loss of tumor suppressor gene PTEN is the most common first event associated with basal-like subtype (Martins, De, Almendro, Gonen, and Park, 2012). Here we report for the first time that the functional upregulation of(More)
BACKGROUND Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumour tissue represents an immense but mainly untapped resource with respect to molecular profiling. The DASL (cDNA-mediated Annealing, Selection, extension, and Ligation) assay is a recently described, RT-PCR-based, highly multiplexed high-throughput gene expression platform developed by Illumina(More)
Allelic loss is a common mechanism of inactivation of tumour-suppressor genes in colorectal carcinomas. A number of known or putative tumour-suppressor genes including NF1, BRCA1, NME1, NME2 and prohibitin are present on the long arm of chromosome 17, and this region has not been extensively analysed in colorectal tumours. In this study 72 colorectal(More)
PURPOSE Triple negative (TN) breast cancers which lack expression of the estrogen (ER), progesterone (PR), and human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2) receptors convey a poor prognosis due in part to a lack of targeted therapies. METHODS To identify viable targets for the treatment of TN disease, we have conducted a gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) on(More)
