Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease that affects approximately 20 million persons all over the world. There are both sporadic and familial forms of AD. We have previously reported a genome-wide linkage analysis on 71 Swedish AD families using 365 genotyped microsatellite markers. In this study, we increased the number of individuals(More)
In the post-genome era, there is a great need for protein-specific affinity reagents to explore the human proteome. Antibodies are suitable as reagents, but generation of antibodies with low cross-reactivity to other human proteins requires careful selection of antigens. Here we show the results from a proteome-wide effort to map linear epitopes based on(More)
Oligometastasis is a clinically distinct subset of metastasis characterized by a limited number of metastases potentially curable with localized therapies. We analyzed pathways targeted by microRNAs over-expressed in clinical oligometastasis samples and identified suppression of cellular adhesion, invasion, and motility pathways in association with the(More)
A total of 1,356 kidney transplants has been performed in the Hospital de Especialidades del Centro Médico Nacional de Occidente, IMSS, in Guadalajara Mexico, including 935 in the past 8 years. This represents an important increase of this activity in our country. Of the total transplants, 1,218 (90%) were from living donors and only 138 (10%) were from(More)
Gata5 is a transcription factor expressed in the lung, but its physiological role is unknown. To test whether and how Gata5 regulates airway constrictor responsiveness, we studied Gata5(-/-), Gata5(+/-), and wild-type mice on the C57BL/6J background. Cholinergic airway constrictor responsiveness was assessed invasively in mice without and with induction of(More)
Melanoma metastases can be categorized by gene expression for the presence of a T-cell-inflamed tumor microenvironment, which correlates with clinical efficacy of immunotherapies. T cells frequently recognize mutational antigens corresponding to nonsynonymous somatic mutations (NSSMs), and in some cases shared differentiation or cancer-testis antigens.(More)
The advent of next-generation sequencing technologies has greatly promoted advances in the study of human diseases at the genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenetic levels. Exome sequencing, where the coding region of the genome is captured and sequenced at a deep level, has proven to be a cost-effective method to detect disease-causing variants and discover(More)
Osteosarcomas (OS) are aggressive tumors of the bone and often have a poor prognosis. Conventional cytogenetic analyses of OS have revealed highly complex karyotypes, with numerous abnormalities. In this study, we analyzed 18 untreated OS tumors from 17 patients of the younger incidence age group by comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), 4 tumors by(More)
This study aimed at identifying novel susceptibility genes for a mixed phenotype of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Results from a genome scan showed strongest linkage to 20p13 in 18 families, and subsequent fine mapping was performed with both microsatellites and single-nucleotide polymorphisms in 18 selected candidate transcripts in an extended(More)
