Genes of the interleukin-1 (IL-1) gene cluster localized on chromosome 2q13 are implicated in many physiological and pathophysiological processes. We present here a high-resolution physical map of this region between markers D2S2008 and D2S4/PAX8. An integrated YAC/PAC contig and a partial transcriptional map were constructed by STS-constent mapping using(More)
A gene for the autosomal recessive kidney disorder juvenile nephronophthisis (NPH) is located on chromosome 2q between markers D2S1893 and D2S1888. Recently, the presence of large homozygous deletions was described in the majority of NPH patients. We constructed an integrated YAC/PAC contig of 54 markers and 30 PAC clones that encompasses this deletion and(More)
The giant 358-kDa protein Ran binding protein 2 (RanBP2/Nup358) is localized at the cytoplasmic side of the nuclear pore complex and likely constitutes the Ran-GTP binding site at the cytoplasmic face of the complex. RanBP2/Nup358 furthermore acts as a chaperone for red/green opsin molecules. Here, we report on the physical mapping of human RanBP2 between(More)
OBJECTIVES Purines are well-known as intracellular sources for energy but they also act as extracellular signaling molecules. In the recent years, there has been a growing interest in the therapeutic potential of purinergic signaling for cancer treatment. This is the first study to analyze lung purine levels and purinergic receptors in non-small-cell lung(More)
BACKGROUND Solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura (SFTP) are rare neoplasms originating from submesothelial mesenchymal cells with fibroblastic differentiation. The clinical behavior of SFTPs is mostly benign; however, up to 20% of patients develop local recurrence and/or distant metastasis. Although different risk-stratification models have been described,(More)
