Cloning and characterization of three human forkhead genes that comprise an FKHR-like gene subfamily.
Alveolar rhabdomyosarcomas are associated with unique chromosomal translocations t(2;13) and t(1;13), which arise from fusion of the genes for the paired box proteins PAX3 and PAX7, respectively, toExpand

Characterization of the GAGE genes that are expressed in various human cancers and in normal testis.
The GAGE-1 gene was identified previously as a gene that codes for an antigenic peptide, YRPRPRRY, which was presented on a human melanoma by HLA-Cw6 molecules and recognized by a clone of CTLsExpand

Identification of a human gene encoding a homologue of Saccharomyces cerevisiae EXO1, an exonuclease implicated in mismatch repair and recombination.
The EXO1 gene was identified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a gene encoding an exonuclease that interacts with MSH2 and functions in mismatch repair and genetic recombination. To understand the roleExpand

Identification of a new MAGE gene with tumor-specific expression by representational difference analysis.
Human genes expressed exclusively in tumors and male germ line cells, such as those of the MAGE, BAGE, and GAGE families, encode antigens recognized by T lymphocytes, which are potentially useful forExpand

Comprehensive karyotyping of the HT‐29 colon adenocarcinoma cell line
The tumor cell line HT‐29 was derived from a primary adenocarcinoma of the rectosigmoid colon. HT‐29 is hypertriploid (3n+) and has accumulated numerous chromosomal structural aberrations. ToExpand

Molecular cytogenetic analysis of a human breast metastasis model: identification of phenotype-specific chromosomal rearrangements.
We have previously characterized an experimental system in which the role of candidate metastasis-related genes can be screened and tested. Monoclonal cell lines M4A4 and NM2C5 originated from theExpand

CT10: A new cancer‐testis (CT) antigen homologous to CT7 and the MAGE family, identified by representational‐difference analysis
Assays relying on humoral or T‐cell‐based recognition of tumor antigens to identify potential targets for immunotherapy have led to the discovery of a significant number of immunogenic gene products,Expand

Genomic cloning and localization of CTAG, a gene encoding an autoimmunogenic cancer-testis antigen NY-ESO-1, to human chromosome Xq28.
CTAG was initially cloned from an esophageal squamous cell carcinoma cDNA expression library by immunoscreening with autologous patient's serum. CTAG mRNA is expressed in a proportion of humanExpand

Functional genomic comparison of lineage-related human bladder cancer cell lines with differing tumorigenic and metastatic potentials by spectral karyotyping, comparative genomic hybridization, and a
We have recently characterized T24T, an invasive and metastatic variant of the T24 human bladder cell line, resulting in a model for bladder cancer progression. To gain additional insight into theExpand

Isolation of DICE1: A gene frequently affected by LOH and downregulated in lung carcinomas
In the development and progression of sporadic tumors multiple tumor suppressor genes are inactivated that may be distinct from predisposing cancer genes. Previously, a tumor suppressor locus onExpand
