BACKGROUND Disseminated superficial actinic porokeratosis (DSAP) is a rare autosomal dominant genodermatosis characterised by annular lesions that has an atrophic centre and a prominent peripheral ridge distributed on sun exposed area. It exhibits high heterogeneity, and five linkage loci have been reported. The mevalonate kinase (MVK) gene located on 12q24(More)
microRNA sponges antagonizing the oncogenic microRNAs are potential candidates for RNA-based cancer therapies. Although the constructed sponges so far are to some extent suitable for biological experiments, they can only express at relative low levels in cells, because they are sensitive to microRNA-mediated activation of deadenylation and subsequent(More)
Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have reproducibly associated ∼40 susceptibility loci with psoriasis. However, the missing heritability is evident and the contributions of coding variants have not yet been systematically evaluated. Here, we present a large-scale whole-exome array analysis for psoriasis consisting of 42,760 individuals. We discover 16(More)
To determine whether recent genome-wide association studies that reported 45 susceptibility loci in European women are also risk factors for breast cancer in Chinese women. We selected and genotyped 40 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using the Sequenom iPlex platform in a female Chinese cohort of 2,901 breast cancer cases and 2,789 healthy controls.(More)
