Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) was used to detect chromosomal gains and losses in a series of 90 frozen soft tissue primary tumors (STTs), all untreated. The material consisted of 69 malignant sarcomas, including 20 malignant fibrous histiocytomas (MFH), 23 liposarcomas (LPS), 6 leiomyosarcomas (LMS), 4 synovial sarcomas, 4 primitive(More)
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by neoplasia of the parathyroid glands, the endocrine pancreas, and the anterior pituitary gland. In addition, families with isolated endocrine neoplasia, notably familial isolated hyperparathyroidism (FIHP) and familial acromegaly, have also been reported. However,(More)

In a 15 year old girl, referred for growth retardation, conventional cytogenetic analysis detected an abnormal 15q+ chromosome with extra material in the proximal region, inherited from her father and grandfather. Using various molecular cytogenetic techniques, including comparative genomic hybridisation, we showed that the extra chromatin resulted from in(More)
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterised by tumours of the parathyroids, pancreas and anterior pituitary that represents one of the familial cancer syndromes. The MEN1 locus has been previously localised to chromosome 11q13, and a <300 kb gene-rich region flanked centromerically by PYGM and telomerically by(More)
In the process of identification of the multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 gene, which was recently published, we isolated a novel gene in the 11q13 region. This gene (named ZFPL1, for zinc-finger protein-like 1) is expressed strongly in the exocrine pancreas as a 1.4-kb polyadenylated RNA encoding a putative protein of 310 amino acids. A mouse EST contig(More)
Artificial amplicons of known size, constructed by use of YACs featuring human 8p12 and 12q13, were analyzed by comparative genomic hybridization (CGH). A minimum of 15 Mb of overrepresented DNA sequences could be detected. The sensitivity is (1) not dependent on the chromosome site and (2) related to the size of the amplicon, decreasing with decreasing(More)
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant familial cancer syndrome characterized by parathyroid, pancreatic, and anterior pituitary tumors. The MEN1 locus has been previously localized to chromosome 11q13, and a 2-Mb gene-rich region flanked by D11S1883 and D11S449 has been defined. We have pursued studies to facilitate(More)
