We have tested for large BRCA1 gene rearrangements in German high-risk breast and ovarian cancer families previously screened negative for point mutations by dHPLC and sequencing. Using the novel MLPA method, two deletions of exons 1A, 1B and 2 and exon 17, respectively, were detected in four out of 75 families investigated in Southern Germany. An identical(More)
Standard methods used for genomic methylation analysis allow the detection of complete absence of either methylated or non-methylated alleles but are usually unable to detect changes in the proportion of methylated and unmethylated alleles. We compare two methods for quantitative methylation analysis, using the chromosome 15q11-q13 imprinted region as(More)
