We have previously identified amplification at 4q12 in testicular germ cell tumors of adolescents and adults centered around the KIT gene encoding a tyrosine kinase transmembrane receptor. Analysis of primary testicular germ cell tumors totaling 190 cases revealed 21% of the seminoma subtype with an increased copy number of KIT whereas this change was(More)
A child born with ambiguous genitalia (Prader III) was found to have a 45,X[92.2%]/46,X,psu dic(Y)(p12)[7.8%] karyotype in peripheral blood lymphocytes. The testosterone level was consistent with that of a normal male; however, gonadotropins were elevated. Ultrasound and endoscopy of the urogenital sinus revealed well-developed Müllerian structures. At 3.5(More)
Testicular germ cell tumors (TGCTs) share germline ancestry but diverge phenotypically and clinically as seminoma (SE) and nonseminoma (NSE), the latter including the pluripotent embryonal carcinoma (EC) and its differentiated derivatives, teratoma (TE), yolk sac tumor (YST), and choriocarcinoma. Epigenomes from TGCTs may illuminate reprogramming in both(More)
The effect of dGuo - being the toxic metabolite in PNP-deficiency - on normal B lymphocytes was studied: purified B cells were cultured with formalinized Staphylococcus aureus Cowan I during 18 hours, leading to activation of resting B cells which then become sensitive to the action of B cell growth and differentiation factors present in the supernatant of(More)
