PURPOSE Germline mutations of the BRCA2 gene are involved in the development of a considerable number of male breast cancer cases. Although phenotypic differences have been observed between sporadic and BRCA-related breast carcinomas, conflicting data exist on the differences in prognosis of women with hereditary and sporadic breast cancer. The purpose of(More)
Mutations in CDKN2A have been found in sporadic cutaneous malignant (CMM), in familial CMM and in other syndromes associated with melanoma. In this study DNA was obtained from 207 individuals and five cell lines. There were 157 CMM patients and 50 healthy members of melanoma patients families. The CMM group included patients with one or two melanoma cases(More)
Expression of p16 protein, intragenic mutations of CDKN2A and hypermethylation of CDKN2A promoter region in 41 sporadic primary uveal melanomas were studied. There were 2 cases of spindle cell B histological type, 11 of A + B and 28 of mixed type. All melanomas infiltrated sclera but in 28 cases infiltration was superficial while in 13 profound. In 7 cases(More)
Murein polysaccharides may contribute to a considerable part of the dry matter of bacterial cells. Their utilization by protozoa inhabiting the rumen is, however, poorly recognized. The objective of this study was to examine the ability of three species of ciliates, i.e., Eudiplodinium maggii, Diploplastron affine, and Entodinium caudatum of digest, and(More)
We have constructed and expressed recombinant chimeric soluble TGF-β type II receptor fused with the Fc portion of human IgG1 (sTβRII-Fc) in NS0 mouse myeloma cells and isolated cell lines constitutively secreting very high levels of biologically active protein. The GS-NS0 expression system takes advantage of the strong human cytomegalovirus immediate early(More)
