The catalytic subunit of human telomerase, hTERT, actively elongates the 3' end of the telomere in most cancer cells. The hTERT promoter, which contains many guanine-rich stretches on the same DNA strand, exhibits an exceptional potential for G-quadruplex formation. Here we show that one particular G-rich sequence in this region coexists in two G-quadruplex(More)
Recently, the human telomeric d[TAGGG(TTAGGG)(3)] sequence has been shown to form in K(+) solution an intramolecular (3+1) G-quadruplex structure, whose G-tetrad core contains three strands oriented in one direction and the fourth in the opposite direction. Here we present a study on the structure of the Bombyx mori telomeric d[TAGG(TTAGG)(3)] sequence,(More)
INTRODUCTION F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) combined positron emission tomography (PET)/ computed tomography (CT) imaging is often used in the surveillance of recurrent colorectal cancers after curative resections. We report 2 patients where FDG combined PET/CT imaging produced false positive results due to chronic inflammation and suture granuloma. (More)
