Duplications leading to functional disomy of chromosome Xq28, including MECP2 as the critical dosage-sensitive gene, are associated with a distinct clinical phenotype in males, characterized by severe mental retardation, infantile hypotonia, progressive neurologic impairment, recurrent infections, bladder dysfunction, and absent speech. Female patients with(More)
MOTIVATION Eu.Gene Analyzer is an easy-to-use, stand-alone application that allows rapid and powerful microarray data analysis in the context of biological pathways. Its intuitive graphical user interface makes it an easy and flexible tool, even for the first-time user. Eu.Gene supports a variety of array platforms, organisms and pathway ontologies,(More)
DNA copy number alterations (CNAs) and gene expression changes have amply been encountered in colorectal cancers (CRCs), but the extent at which CNAs affect gene expression, as well as their relevance for tumor development, are still poorly defined. Here we aimed at assessing the clinical relevance of these parameters in a 10 year follow-up study. Tumors(More)
Here we describe a case of Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) associated with an atypical histiocytic lesion and a new pathogenic mutation. The genetic analysis revealed an heterozygous mutation in the 5' splice site of intron 32, 6,084+1G → T. Histopathological findings are compatible with juvenile xanthogranuloma. The new, not already described, splicing(More)
