Previously we analysed overlapping homozygous deletions in lung and breast tumours/tumour lines and defined a small region of 120 kb (part of LCTSGR1) at 3p21.3 that contained putative lung and breast cancer tumour suppressor gene(s) (TSG). Eight genes including RASSF1 were isolated from the minimal region. However, extensive mutation analysis in lung(More)
We studied 25 families with von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL) to locate VHL more precisely on chromosome 3. We found that VHL was linked to RAF1, confirming previous observations, and to two polymorphic DNA markers, D3S18 and D3S191. Multipoint linkage analysis indicated that the most likely location for VHL was in the interval between RAF1 and D3S18. D3S18(More)
OBJECTIVE Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a rare, inherited multisystem neoplastic disorder. There is no biochemical test available to distinguish VHL disease gene carriers from their healthy siblings. We evaluated DNA polymorphism analysis as a method for identifying disease gene carriers. DESIGN Prospective comparison of the results of DNA analysis(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the clinical course and genetic studies of renal carcinoma in members of a family with the constitutional chromosome translocation, t(3;8) (p14;q24). DESIGN A follow-up study that updates our 1979 report of renal carcinoma in 10 of these relatives. SETTING A cancer center and university hospital. PATIENTS Members of the family,(More)
Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is a dominantly inherited cancer syndrome characterised by the development of retinal, cerebellar, and spinal haemangioblastomas, renal cell carcinoma, and phaeochromocytoma. The gene for VHL disease has been mapped to chromosome 3p25-p26 and flanking markers identified. We have investigated the usefulness of currently(More)
