MOTIVATION The biologic significance of results obtained through cluster analyses of gene expression data generated in microarray experiments have been demonstrated in many studies. In this article we focus on the development of a clustering procedure based on the concept of Bayesian model-averaging and a precise statistical model of expression data. (More)
We have used a high density microarray hybridization approach to characterize the transcriptional response of human hepatoma HepG2 cells to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD). We find that exposure to 10 nM TCDD for 8 hr alters by at least a factor of 2.1 the expression of 310 known genes and of an equivalent number of expressed sequence tags.(More)
Neonatal exposure of CD-1 mice to diethylstilbestrol (DES) or genistein (GEN) induces uterine adenocarcinoma in aging animals. Uterine carcinogenesis in this model is ovarian dependent because its evolution is blocked by prepubertal ovariectomy. This study seeks to discover novel uterine genes whose expression is altered by such early endocrine disruption(More)
Clustering is a common methodology for the analysis of array data, and many research laboratories are generating array data with repeated measurements. We evaluated several clustering algorithms that incorporate repeated measurements, and show that algorithms that take advantage of repeated measurements yield more accurate and more stable clusters. In(More)
MOTIVATION Identifying patterns of co-expression in microarray data by cluster analysis has been a productive approach to uncovering molecular mechanisms underlying biological processes under investigation. Using experimental replicates can generally improve the precision of the cluster analysis by reducing the experimental variability of measurements. In(More)
BACKGROUND Metabolites of the potent human carcinogen 4-aminobiphenyl (ABP) induce oxidative stress and form DNA adducts that are associated with hepatic and urinary bladder toxicity and bladder tumorigenesis. Results of in vitro and cell culture studies have suggested that cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2) is the major metabolic activator of ABP. We used(More)
Rearrangements involving the RET gene are common in radiation-associated papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). The RET/PTC1 type of rearrangement is an inversion of chromosome 10 mediated by illegitimate recombination between the RET and the H4 genes, which are 30 megabases apart. Here we ask whether despite the great linear distance between them, RET and H4(More)
Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) studies have been used to identify sites harboring tumor suppressor genes involved in tumor initiation or progression. Previous reports have suggested that regions within chromosomes 3p, 11q, 2p, 2q, 10q, and 1p may be frequently deleted in human follicular thyroid cell tumors. We have extended the analysis of these and other(More)
Mice with thyroid-specific expression of oncogenic BRAF (Tg-Braf) develop papillary thyroid cancers (PTCs) that are locally invasive and have well-defined foci of poorly differentiated thyroid carcinoma (PDTC). To investigate the PTC-PDTC progression, we performed a microarray analysis using RNA from paired samples of PDTC and PTC collected from the same(More)
This study used the postural stability technique to investigate the neurological effects of cumulative low-level exposure to raw JP-8 jet fuel vapor on aircraft maintenance personnel. All subjects performed two sets of four 30-second postural sway tests. The results of mean cumulative exposure levels (in parts per million +/- standard error of mean) were(More)
