We have used genome-wide allelotyping with 348 polymorphic autosomal markers spaced, on average, 10 cM apart to quantitate the extent of intrachromosomal instability in 59 human sporadic colorectal carcinomas. We have compared instability measured by this method with that measured by inter-(simple sequence repeat) PCR and microsatellite instability assays.(More)
Cancer cell genomes contain alterations beyond known etiologic events, but their total number has been unknown at even the order of magnitude level. By sampling colorectal premalignant polyp and carcinoma cell genomes through use of the technique inter-(simple sequence repeat) PCR, we have found genomic alterations to be considerably more abundant than(More)
Genistein is a natural protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor that exerts anti-cancer effect by inducing G2/M arrest and apoptosis. However, the phosphotyrosine signaling pathways mediated by genistein are largely unknown. In this study, we combined tyrosine phosphoprotein enrichment with MS-based quantitative proteomics technology to globally identify(More)
Highly efficient genome editing can be achieved through targeting an endonuclease to specific locus of interest. Engineered zinc-finger nuclease (ZFN) and CRISPR-associated protein-9 nuclease (Cas9) offer such an elegant approach for genome editing in vertebrate cells. In this study, we have utilized ZFN and Cas9-catalyzed double strand break followed by(More)
Cell adhesion and migration are highly dynamic biological processes that play important roles in organ development and cancer metastasis. Their tight regulation by small GTPases and protein phosphorylation make interrogation of these key processes of great importance. We now show that the conserved dual-specificity phosphatase human cell-division cycle 14A(More)
CDC14 is an essential dual-specificity phosphatase that counteracts CDK1 activity during anaphase to promote mitotic exit in Saccharomyces cerevisiae Surprisingly, human CDC14A is not essential for cell cycle progression. Instead, it regulates cell migration and cell adhesion. Little is known about the substrates of hCDC14A and the counteracting kinases.(More)
