Retrospective pharmacogenetic analysis was performed on 120 Caucasian subjects. Subjects were obtained in collaboration with the Estonian Genome Project and Egeen Inc. (CA, USA), who provided blinded medical record and genetic data to the researchers, respectively. Subjects selected from the Estonian Genome Project had a diagnosis of hypertension confirmed(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to produce a model to predict outcome in tamoxifen-treated breast cancer patients based on clinicopathologic features and multiple molecular markers. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN This was a retrospective study of 324 stage I to III female breast cancer patients treated with tamoxifen for whom standard clinicopathologic data and(More)
Mutations leading to hemophilia A by substitution of amino acids in coagulation factor VIII may provide important clues to the structure and function of this large and enigmatic protein. To efficiently find missense mutations, hemophiliacs with mild and moderately severe forms of the disease were surveyed. DNA samples from affected individuals were assayed(More)

Farnesyl transferase (FTase) activity, characterized in extracts of Xenopus laevis oocytes using an in vitro filtration assay, was observed to be at least 80% cytosolic with optimal product formation at pH 7.0. Oocyte FTase displayed enzyme activity that was specific for the Ras-CVIM construct but not Ras-CAIL or Ras-SVLS. Labeling of Ras-CVIM using(More)
