BACKGROUND Calreticulin (CRT), an endoplasmic reticulum protein, has been reported to be essential for the differentiation of neuroblastoma (NB) cells, suggesting that CRT may affect the tumor behavior of neuroblastoma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of clinicopathologic factors and patient survival with the expression of CRT in(More)
Due to their high sequence diversity even among closely related species, satellite DNA sequences can be a useful molecular marker for phylogenetic and taxonomic analyses. To characterize the satellite DNA in the genome of a native muntjac species of Taiwan, the Formosan muntjac, satellite DNA clones representing three different cervid satellite DNA families(More)
An 8-year-old boy presenting with hypotonia, moderate mental retardation, developmental delay, and psychomotor retardation is reported. Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain at age 3 years revealed a Dandy-Walker variant. Cytogenetic analysis of the peripheral blood revealed a derivative chromosome 12 with unknown additional material attached to the(More)
Molecular cytogenetic analysis identified a new type of dicentric chromosome involving different breakpoints at 18q in a female fetus. The chromosome anomaly was designated as an asymmetrical pseudoisodicentric chromosome 18, 46,XX,psu dic(18)(pter-->q11.2::q21.3-->pter)mat. A series of BAC clones for 18q11.2 and q21.3 regions were used to identify one(More)
