The cells of living organisms in contact with the external environment are constantly attacked by different kinds of substances such as micro-organisms, toxins, and pollutants. With evolution, defense mechanisms, such as the secretion of mucus has been developed. Mucins are the main components of mucus. They are synthesized and secreted by specialized cells(More)
Human mucin gene MUC5AC is clustered with MUC2, MUC5B and MUC6 on chromosome 11p15.5. We report here the full length cDNA sequence upstream of the repetitive region of human MUC5AC. We have also determined the sequence of its large central tandem repeat array. The 5'-region reveals high degree of sequence similarity with MUC2 and MUC5B and codes for 1336(More)
Split-hand/foot malformation (SHFM) with long-bone deficiency (SHFLD, MIM#119100) is a rare condition characterised by SHFM associated with long-bone malformation usually involving the tibia. Previous published data reported several unrelated patients with 17p13.3 duplication and SHFLD. Recently, BHLHA9 has been proposed to be the major candidate gene(More)
Split hand/foot malformation (SHFM) with long-bone deficiency (SHFLD, MIM#119100) is a rare condition characterized by SHFM associated with long-bone malformation usually involving the tibia. Previous published data reported several unrelated patients with 17p13.3 duplication and SHFLD. Recently, the minimal critical region had been reduced, suggesting that(More)
BACKGROUND The molecular profiling of patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) for known oncogenic drivers is recommended during routine care. Nationally, however, the feasibility and effects on outcomes of this policy are unknown. We aimed to assess the characteristics, molecular profiles, and clinical outcomes of patients who were(More)
BACKGROUND There is scarce data available about epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations other than common exon 19 deletions and exon 21 (L858R) mutations. PATIENTS AND METHODS EGFR exon 18 and/or exon 20 mutations were collected from 10 117 non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) samples analysed at 15 French National Cancer Institute(More)
A Pasteurella multocida human isolate was resistant to beta-lactams because of production of ROB-1 beta-lactamase. The beta-lactamase was encoded by a 4.3-kb plasmid closely related to that of a Pasteurella bovine strain, as shown by Sau3A restriction profile and hybridization with a plasmid probe containing the blaROB-1 gene.
The human MUC4 gene encodes a large membrane-associated mucin, characterized by a mucin tandem repeat domain and a growth factor-like transmembrane domain. In addition to the originally published sequence (sv0-MUC4), several MUC4 cDNA sequences (called sv1-MUC4 to sv21-MUC4, MUC4/X, MUC4/Y) from various tissues and cell lines have been recently described.(More)
Using genomic cosmid and BAC clones and genome shotgun supercontigs available in GenBank, we determined the complete gene structure of the four mouse secreted gel-forming mucin genes Muc2, Muc5ac, Muc5b and Muc6 and the organization of the genomic locus harboring these genes. The mouse secreted gel-forming mucin gene is 215 kb on distal chromosome 7 to 69.0(More)
I n 1967, Bachman described a ‘‘hereditary peripheral dysostosis’’ which affected a mother and her two children. What was later considered as multiple epiphyseal dysplasia combined with phalangeal cone shaped epiphyses was renamed angel shaped phalangoepiphyseal dysplasia (ASPED) and considered as a genetic bone marker. ASPED represents a further variety of(More)
