Type II lissencephaly (type II LIS) is a group of autosomal recessive congenital muscular dystrophies (CMD) associated with defects in alpha-DG O-glycosylation, which comprises Walker-Warburg syndrome, Fukuyama cerebral and muscular dystrophy, or muscle-eye-brain disease. The most severe forms of these diseases often have a fetal presentation and lead to a(More)
Infantile myofibromatosis, the most common fibrous tumor of infancy, occurs in solitary, multiple, and generalized forms, with similar histology but different clinicopathologic and prognostic implications. This entity is a mesenchymal disorder characterized by the proliferation of fibrous tumors in the skin, muscles, viscera, bones, and subcutaneous(More)
BACKGROUND In adult liver, the mesenchymal cells, portal fibroblasts and vascular smooth muscle cells can transdifferentiate into myofibroblasts, and are involved in portal fibrosis. Differential expression of markers, such as alpha-smooth muscle actin (ASMA), h-caldesmon and cellular retinol-binding protein-1 allows their phenotypic discrimination. The aim(More)
SLO syndrome is an autosomal recessive condition with multiple malformations. This syndrome is ascribed to deficiency of 7 dehydrocholesterol reductase, an enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway. The characteristics of this syndrome are facial anomalies, syndactyly of the second and third toe, postaxial polydactyly and genital anomalies with sexual(More)
Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis is a molecular technique allowing the detection of recurrent translocations in cancer. Several hybridization protocols were assayed in order to evaluate their performances for interphase FISH analysis of histological sections and imprints using split probes. Adult and foetal lymphoid tissues were selected.(More)
Elastic fibers are composed of microfibrils containing fibrillin-1 and an elastic component, elastin. Microfibrils may not be associated with elastin. In the adult liver, fibrillin-1 and elastin are coexpressed within the stroma and portal tracts vessel walls. Fibrillin-1 is expressed alone around the bile ducts and within the Disse space. There is little(More)
