We report on a child with a small supernumerary marker chromosome (sSMC) causing partial trisomy 6p. The child showed a phenotype consisting of neonatal craniosynostosis, microcephaly, and borderline developmental delay. By molecular techniques the sSMC has been shown to contain approximately 16 Mb of genomic DNA from 6p21.1 to 6cen, being de novo and of(More)
Molecular mechanisms associated with pathophysiological changes in ventricular remodelling due to myocardial infarction (MI) remain poorly understood. We analyzed changes in gene expression by microarray technology in porcine myocardial tissue at 1, 4, and 6 weeks post-MI.MI was induced by coronary artery ligation in 9 female pigs (30-40 kg). Animals were(More)
Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is genetically characterized by 11q13 translocations leading to the overexpression of CCND1, and additional secondary genomic alterations that may be important in the progression of this disease. We have analyzed 22 MCL cases and 10 MCL cell lines using multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization (M-FISH), FISH, and comparative(More)
We present the study of 16 cases of splenic marginal zone B-cell lymphoma (SMZBL) combining conventional cytogenetics and fluorescence in situ hybridization technique (FISH). We used a locus specific probe (11q22.3) that hybridizes with Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated gene (ATM) and a centromeric probe of chromosome 11 as a control. Deletions in ATM gene(More)
OBJECTIVE Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDCM) affects myocardial vascularization. Whether a lack of demand for increased myocardial vascularization and/or an impaired response of circulating angiogenic-supportive cells are responsible for the vascular derangements found in IDCM is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS Left ventricle (LV) samples obtained at(More)
Splenic marginal zone lymphoma (SMZL) is a B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder with characteristic clinical, immunophenotypic, cytological and histological features. Some karyotypic abnormalities have been related to this disorder and most of them are usually complex and difficult to define. The aim of present study was to characterize new chromosomal(More)
