BACKGROUND Deletion and the reciprocal duplication in 16p11.2 were recently associated with autism and developmental delay. METHOD We indentified 27 deletions and 18 duplications of 16p11.2 were identified in 0.6% of all samples submitted for clinical array-CGH (comparative genomic hybridisation) analysis. Detailed molecular and phenotypic(More)
AIMS To compare the lineage specific distribution of MUC1 and MUC2 mucins in normal colorectal mucosa and adenocarcinoma and to identify pathological correlations. METHODS Paraffin wax sections from 51 colorectal cancers were examined for the expression of MUC1 and MUC2, non-O-acetyl sialic acid and the carbohydrate epitopes Lex, Ley, sialosyl-Lex,(More)
Expression of the core blood group structures sialosyl Tn (STn) and Tn is regarded as a colorectal cancer-specific change reflecting truncated synthesis of the oligosaccharide component of goblet cell mucin. The distribution of STn and Tn in normal and malignant epithelium has been studied in detail by a combination of mucin-, lectin-, and(More)
The jet energy scale (JES) and its systematic uncertainty are determined for jets measured with the ATLAS detector using proton–proton collision data with a centre-ofmass energy of √ s = 7 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.7 fb−1. Jets are reconstructed from energy deposits forming topological clusters of calorimeter cells using the anti-kt(More)
A search for scalar particles decaying via narrow resonances into two photons in the mass range 65-600 GeV is performed using 20.3  fb(-1) of √s 8 TeV pp collision data collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. The recently discovered Higgs boson is treated as a background. No significant evidence for an additional signal is observed.(More)
Results of a search for new phenomena in final states with an energetic jet and large missing transverse momentum are reported. The search uses 20.3 fb−1 of √ s = 8 TeV data collected in 2012 with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Events are required to have at least one jet with pT > 120 GeV and no leptons. Nine signal regions are considered with increasing(More)
Two-particle correlations in relative azimuthal angle (Δø) and pseudorapidity (Δη) are measured in sqrt[s(NN)] = 5.02 TeV p+Pb collisions using the ATLAS detector at the LHC. The measurements are performed using approximately 1 μb(-1) of data as a function of transverse momentum (p(T)) and the transverse energy (ΣE(T)(Pb)) summed over 3.1 < η < 4.9 in the(More)
Searches are performed for resonant and nonresonant Higgs boson pair production in the γγbb[over ¯] final state using 20  fb^{-1} of proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 8 TeV recorded with the ATLAS detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. A 95% confidence level upper limit on the cross section times branching ratio of nonresonant(More)
This Letter presents a search for quantum black-hole production using 20.3 fb-1 of data collected with the ATLAS detector in pp collisions at the LHC at √s = 8 TeV. The quantum black holes are assumed to decay into a final state characterized by a lepton (electron or muon) and a jet. In either channel, no event with a lepton-jet invariant mass of 3.5 TeV or(More)
A likelihood-based discriminant for the identification of quarkand gluon-initiated jets is built and validated using 4.7 fb−1 of proton–proton collision data at √ s = 7 TeV collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC. Data sampleswith enrichedquarkor gluon content are used in the construction and validation of templates of jet properties that are the input(More)
