Previous molecular genetic studies on HeLa cell (a cervical cancer cell line) derived non-tumorigenic and tumorigenic hybrids have localized a tumor suppressor gene to the long arm of chromosome 11. Analysis of cervical cancer cell lines using chromosome 11 specific probes showed deletion and translocation of 11q13 sequences in five out of eight cell lines.(More)
Nonrandom deletion of chromosome 11q13 sequences is a significant event in a number of human tumors. We have recently identified a 300-kb minimal area of deletion in primary cervical tumors that overlaps with deletions observed in endocrine and nasopharyngeal tumors. We have also observed a 5.7-kb homozygous deletion within this interval in HeLa cells (a(More)
Studies on nontumorigenic and tumorigenic human cell hybrids derived from the fusion of HeLa (a cervical cancer cell line) with GM00077 (a normal skin fibroblast cell line) have demonstrated "functional" tumor-suppressor activity on chromosome 11. It has been shown that several of the neoplastically transformed radiation-induced hybrid cells called GIMs(More)
Greater Mekong Subregion countries are committed to eliminating Plasmodium falciparum malaria by 2025. Current elimination interventions target infections at parasite densities that can be detected by standard microscopy or rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs). More sensitive detection methods have been developed to detect lower density “asymptomatic” infections(More)
Cloning and sequencing of 5.5 kb deletion at chromosome 11q13.1 from the HeLa cells, tumorigenic hybrids and two fibroblast cell lines have revealed homologous recombination between AluSx and AluY resulting in the deletion of intervening sequences. Long-range PCR of the 5.5 kb sequence in 494 normal lymphocyte samples showed heterozygous deletion in 28.3%(More)
