Oncogene-induced cellular senescence (OIS) is emerging as a potent cancer-protective response to oncogenic events, serving to eliminate early neoplastic cells from the proliferative pool. Using combined genetic and bioinformatic analysis, we find that OIS is linked specifically to the activation of an inflammatory transcriptome. Induced genes included the(More)
Patients with typical features of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) limited to a specific body segment are usually referred to as having “segmental NF1”, which is generally assumed to be the result of somatic mosaicism for a NF1 mutation. Mosaicism has also been demonstrated at the molecular level in some sporadic cases with phenotypically classic NF1. In the(More)
The risk of pancreatic cancer (PC) is increased in melanoma-prone families but the causal relationship between germline CDKN2A mutations and PC risk is uncertain, suggesting the existence of non-CDKN2A factors. One genetic possibility involves patients having mutations in multiple high-risk PC-related genes; however, no systematic examination has yet been(More)
