Germline mutations of CDKN2A at 9p21 have been shown to predispose to disease in melanoma pedigrees worldwide. However, there remains a significant proportion of melanoma pedigrees with evidence of linkage to 9p21 in which mutations in CDKN2A have not been detected. Investigation of other potential tumour suppressor genes at 9p21 and the promotor of CDKN2A(More)
Although the CDKN2A gene has been shown to be the major genetic determinant governing high-penetrance susceptibility to melanoma, there remains a significant proportion of melanoma pedigrees in which germline mutations of CDKN2A have not been identified. We have therefore studied the prevalence of germline 9p deletions encompassing the CDKN2 locus in(More)
