We report the spectrum of 59 ATM mutations observed in ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) patients in the British Isles. Of 51 ATM mutations identified in families native to the British Isles, 11 were founder mutations, and 2 of these 11 conferred a milder clinical phenotype with respect to both cerebellar degeneration and cellular features. We report, in two A-T(More)
We have recently documented that phosphorylation of the GluR1 subunit of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-propionate (AMPA) glutamate receptors is influenced by calcium-independent forms of phospholipase A(2) (iPLA(2)) activity in the brain. Given the importance of GluR1 subunit phosphorylation in the control of AMPA receptor delivery to synaptic(More)
Dopamine (DA) receptors, which are heavily expressed in the caudate/putamen of the brain, represent the molecular target of several drugs used in the treatment of various neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's disease. Although most of the drugs are very effective in alleviating the symptoms associated with these conditions, their long-term utilization(More)
681 Background: Differentiating primary breast tumors that are prone to develop metastasis (Group-I) from those that are not (Group-II) is critical to design appropriate treatments. Previously we isolated several metastasis associated DNA sequences (MADSs) and recently published that MADS-IX and -XI are informative in more than 60% of cases by PCR(More)
