A girl presented with a phenotype including neonatal hypotonia, psychomotor retardation, mental retardation, short stature, and facial dysmorphism. She demonstrated common features of both 14q31-qter duplication and terminal 14q deletion. She had undergone surgery for patent ductus arteriosus and pyloric stenosis in infancy. Her karyotype was 46,XX,der(14)(More)
An 11-year-old girl presented with the phenotype of microcephaly, moderate mental retardation, motor retardation, short stature, strabismus, brachydactyly, and facial dysmorphism. She had undergone surgery for inguinal hernias. Detailed examinations of the heart and other internal organs revealed normal findings. Her karyotype was 46,XX,dup(5)(q35.2q35.3)(More)
A 250K single-nucleotide polymorphism array was used to study subchromosomal alterations in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The most frequent amplification was found at 7p11.2 in 9 of 29 (31%) oral cancer patients. Minimal genomic mapping verified a unique amplicon spanning from 54.6 to 55.3 Mb on chromosome 7, which contains SEC61G and epidermal(More)
Patients with partial trisomy 3p seldom present major dysmorphic features, and holoprosencephaly occurs in only 10% of the cases with partial trisomy 3p. It has been suggested that multiple genetic hits or environmental exposures are required for the clinical expression of holoprosencephaly. At 16 weeks of gestation, prenatal sonography identified a fetus(More)
OBJECTIVES To present the prenatal diagnosis of a de novo complex chromosomal rearrangement (CCR) associated with de novo interstitial deletions and duplication and to review the literature. CASE AND METHODS Amniocentesis was performed at 18 weeks' gestation because of an increased risk for Down syndrome based on maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein and human(More)
OBJECTIVES To present the prenatal findings and molecular cytogenetic analyses of partial trisomy 12q and partial monosomy 21q, and a review of the literature. METHODS Amniocentesis was performed at 23 gestational weeks in a 33-year-old woman because of abnormal sonographic findings. Amniocentesis revealed a derivative chromosome 21, or der(21), with a(More)
PURPOSE Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is currently under clinical development as a cancer therapeutic agent. Many human malignant glioma cells, however, are resistant to TRAIL treatment. We, therefore, investigated the genomic alterations in TRAIL-resistant malignant glioma cells. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Seven glioma cell(More)
OBJECTIVES We have recently generated several lines of transgenic pigs for HLA-DP and -DQ to elucidate the role of HLA-II antigens in the modulation of cell-mediated rejection of xenotransplantation. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis, the aim of this study was to determine integration sites and to test zygosity of these transgenes in(More)
NF-E2 is a transcription activator for the regulation of a number of erythroid- and megakaryocytic lineage-specific genes. Here we present evidence that the large subunit of mammalian NF-E2, p45, is sumoylated in vivo in human erythroid K562 cells and in mouse fetal liver. By in vitro sumoylation reaction and DNA transfection experiments, we show that the(More)
