The cBio Cancer Genomics Portal (http://cbioportal.org) is an open-access resource for interactive exploration of multidimensional cancer genomics data sets, currently providing access to data from more than 5,000 tumor samples from 20 cancer studies. The cBio Cancer Genomics Portal significantly lowers the barriers between complex genomic data and cancer(More)
The cBioPortal for Cancer Genomics (http://cbioportal.org) provides a Web resource for exploring, visualizing, and analyzing multidimensional cancer genomics data. The portal reduces molecular profiling data from cancer tissues and cell lines into readily understandable genetic, epigenetic, gene expression, and proteomic events. The query interface combined(More)
FUS, EWSR1 and TAF15, constituting the FET protein family, are abundant, highly conserved RNA-binding proteins with important roles in oncogenesis and neuronal disease, yet their RNA targets and recognition elements are unknown. Using PAR-CLIP, we defined global RNA targets for all human FET proteins and two ALS-causing human FUS mutants. FET members showed(More)
Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) affects the growth, migration, and function in vitro of mesenchymal cells, but little is known about its normal physiological functions in vivo. We show here that mice deficient for PDGF B die perinatally and display several anatomical and histological abnormalities. Kidney glomerular tufts do not form, apparently(More)
The vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) are major angiogenic regulators and are involved in several aspects of endothelial cell physiology. However, the detailed role of VEGF-B in blood vessel function has remained unclear. Here we show that VEGF-B has an unexpected role in endothelial targeting of lipids to peripheral tissues. Dietary lipids(More)
SK-N-SH and SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells treated by 12-)-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate(TPA) express morphological and biochemical changes, which indicate that differentiation towards more mature cells has occurred. The most prominent morphological changes were the development in 40-60% of the cells of cell-surface projections longer than 50(More)
Twenty monoclonal antibodies reactive with type II collagen were characterized as to their determinant specificity and their reactivity with cartilage-derived components. The monoclonal antibodies reacted with 7 different epitopes on the native type II collagen triple helical structure. Antibodies defining 3 of these epitopes occurred more frequently in(More)
CTCF, a conserved, ubiquitous, and highly versatile 11-zinc-finger factor involved in various aspects of gene regulation, forms methylation-sensitive insulators that regulate X chromosome inactivation and expression of imprinted genes. We document here the existence of a paralogous gene with the same exons encoding the 11-zinc-finger domain as mammalian(More)
Viruses cause 10-15% of all human cancers. Massively parallel sequencing has recently proved effective for uncovering novel viruses and virus-tumour associations, but this approach has not yet been applied to comprehensive patient cohorts. Here we screen a diverse landscape of human cancer, encompassing 4,433 tumours and 19 cancer types, for known and novel(More)
A test solution for a complex system requires the design of a test access mechanism (TAM), which is used for the test data transportation, and a test schedule of the test data transportation on the designed TAM. An extensive TAM will lead to lower test-application time at the expense of higher routing costs, compared to a simple TAM with low routing cost(More)
