Several different autosomal recessive genetic disorders characterized by ataxia with oculomotor apraxia (AOA) have been identified with the unifying feature of defective DNA damage recognition and/or repair. We describe here the characterization of a novel form of AOA showing increased sensitivity to agents that cause single-strand breaks (SSBs) in DNA but(More)
The granular cell tumor (GCT) is a rare neoplasm derived from Schwann cells and is considered to be a benign tumor. The vulvar region is one of the common sites for these lesions. Vulvar occurrence of GCT constitutes about 7% of cases. To our knowledge, this is the first case of granular cell tumor of the vulva on an episiotomy scar. GCT should be(More)
Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) participates in the intricate network of systems developed by the eukaryotic cell to cope with the numerous environmental and endogenous genetoxic agents. Cloning of the PARP gene has allowed the development of genetic and molecular approaches to elucidate the structure and the function of this abundant and highly(More)
