Most cases of breast and prostate cancer are not associated with mutations in known high-penetrance genes, indicating the involvement of multiple low-penetrance risk alleles. Studies that have attempted to identify these genes have met with limited success. The National Cancer Institute Breast and Prostate Cancer Cohort Consortium--a pooled analysis of(More)
In biotin-responsive multiple carboxylase deficiency, a characteristic organic aciduria reflects in vivo deficiency of mitochondrial propionyl CoA carboxylase, 3-methylcrotonyl CoA carboxylase, and pyruvate carboxylase. A possible primary or secondary defect in biotin absorption leads to an infantile-onset syndrome, while abnormal holocarboxylase synthetase(More)
During metazoan development, 3' UTR signals mediate the time and place of gene expression. For protozoan Plasmodium parasites, the formation of ookinetes from gametes in the mosquito midgut is an analogous developmental process. Previous studies of the 3' UTR signals necessary for expression of Pgs28, the major surface protein of Plasmodium gallinaceum(More)
Anticipation has been described in bipolar affective disorder (BPAD). However, there are conflicting results from association studies screening for a link between BPAD and CAG/CTG repeat expansions, the molecular basis of anticipation in several hereditary neurodegenerative disorders. Here, the repeat expansion detection (RED) method was used to screen for(More)
A decrease in age of onset of schizophrenia through consecutive family generations (anticipation) has been found in several studies. Anticipation is known to result from expansion of CAG repeats in genes that determine several neurodegenerative disorders. In a previous study we analysed 26 unilineal two-generation French pedigrees and found clinical(More)
