The presence of genomic rearrangements of the BRCA1 gene in breast and/or ovarian cancer families has been intensively investigated in patients from various countries over the last years. A number of different rearrangements have been reported by several studies that clearly document the involvement of this mutation type in genetic predisposition to breast(More)
Using a combination of oligonucleotide probes and restriction endonuclease enzymes, we characterize beta-thalassemic mutations in 91 homozygous patients and 86 unrelated carriers. Overall, 268 beta-thalassemic genes were obtained. Eleven beta-globin mutations were identified, confirming the wide molecular heterogeneity of beta-thalassemia in Calabria.(More)
