Genomic triplication of the alpha-synuclein gene (SNCA) has been reported to cause hereditary early-onset parkinsonism with dementia. These findings prompted us to screen for multiplication of the SNCA locus in nine families in whom parkinsonism segregates as an autosomal dominant trait. One kindred was identified with SNCA duplication by semiquantitative(More)
The AML1 gene, situated in 21q22, is often rearranged in acute leukemias through t(8;21) translocation, t(12;21) translocation, or less often t(3;21) translocation. Recently, point mutations in the Runt domain of the AML1 gene have also been reported in leukemia patients. Observations for mutations of the Runt domain of the AML1 gene in bone marrow cells(More)
V(D)J recombinations in lymphocytes are essential for immunological diversity. They are also useful markers of pathologies. In leukemia, they are used to quantify the minimal residual disease during patient follow-up. However, the full breadth of lymphocyte diversity is not fully understood. We propose new algorithms that process high-throughput sequencing(More)
Costimulatory molecules are essential regulators of the immunological synapse and enable the fine-tuning of the immune response. These mechanisms are subverted by cancer cells to evade immunosurveillance. The B7 family of costimulatory molecules comprises several ligands that may contribute to immunoescape. B7-H3 [B7-homolog 3 or CD276] remains poorly(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a heterogeneous disease. Even within the same NPM1-mutated genetic subgroup, some patients harbor additional mutations in FLT3, IDH1/2, DNMT3A or TET2. Recent studies have shown the prognostic significance of minimal residual disease (MRD) in AML but it remains to be determined which molecular markers are the most suitable(More)
CD81 is a cell surface protein which belongs to the tetraspanin family. While in multiple myeloma its expression on plasma cells is associated with worse prognosis, this has not yet been explored in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We measured membrane expression of CD81 on AML cells at diagnosis, evaluated its association with AML characteristics and its(More)
