Gastric cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths, but analysis of its molecular and clinical characteristics has been complicated by histological and aetiological heterogeneity. Here we describe a comprehensive molecular evaluation of 295 primary gastric adenocarcinomas as part of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project. We propose a molecular(More)
The E1 (epileptic) mouse is considered a model for complex partial seizures in humans. Seizures in E1 mice begin around 7-8 weeks of age and persist throughout life. To determine if astrocytic gliosis was present in adult seizing E1 mice, the distribution of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) was studied in the hippocampus using an antibody to GFAP. The(More)
Analysis of ovarian carcinomas has shown that karyotypes are often highly abnormal and cannot be identified with certainty by conventional cytogenetic methods. In this study, 17 tumors derived from 13 patients were analyzed by a combination of spectral karyotyping (SKY), comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), and expression microarrays. Within the study(More)
Array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) and microarray expression profiling were used to subclassify DNA and RNA alterations associated with differential response to chemotherapy in ovarian cancer. Two to 4 Mb interval arrays were used to map genomic imbalances in 26 sporadic serous ovarian tumors. Cytobands 1p36, 1q42-44, 6p22.1-p21.2, 7q32.1-q34(More)
The ganglioside composition of an experimental ependymoblastoma was examined in C57BL/6 mice. This tumor was produced by Dr. H. Zimmerman in 1949 from methylcholanthrene implantation in the brain and has been maintained in serial transplants through many generations. The influence of tumor environment on ganglioside composition was determined by studying(More)
