Calreticulin (CALR) mutations were recently identified in patients with essential thrombocythemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) devoid of JAK2 and MPL mutations. We evaluated the clinical, laboratory, and molecular features of a Taiwanese population of patients with ET. Among 147 ET patients, CALR mutations were detected in 33 (22.5 %), JAK2V617F in(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), members of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) superfamily, have been shown to play important roles in the nervous system, including neuronal survival and synaptogenesis. However, the physiological functions of BMP signaling in the mammalian neuromuscular system are not well understood. In this study, we found(More)
In the mammalian central nervous system transcripts of certain synaptic components are localized near the synapse, allowing for rapid regulation of protein levels. Here we test whether an mRNA localization mechanism also exists in the postsynaptic specialization induced by agrin in C2C12 myotubes. RT-PCR showed that Chrna1 was co-purified with nicotinic(More)
OBJECTIVE Epstein-Barr virus-positive diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is a provisional entity in the 2008 World Health Organization classification of tumors of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissues. Reports on the characteristics and clinical outcome of this disease in different geographic regions showed great disparities. METHODS To define the clinical(More)
Dear Editor, Approximately 45 % of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) show normal karyotype (cytogenetically normal AML (CN-AML)) at diagnosis, which are cytogenetically categorized as intermediate risk but is clinically heterogenous. The evaluation of molecular mutations offers better prognostication for CNAML patients. Here, we present a case of molecularly(More)
