Patients with human severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) can be divided into those with B lymphocytes (B+ SCID) and those without (B- SCID). Although several genetic causes are known for B+ SCID, the etiology of B- SCID has not been defined. Six of 14 B- SCID patients tested were found to carry a mutation of the recombinase activating gene 1 (RAG-1),(More)
Human severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) patients were analyzed by a polymerase chain reaction assay for their recombination capability at the DHQ52-JH region of the immunoglobulin heavy chain locus. Five patients with B cells (B+ SCID) exhibited a recombination pattern also observed in healthy persons. In contrast, six patients lacking B cells (B-(More)
p53 mutations are found in a wide variety of cancers, including hematologic malignancies. These alterations apparently contribute to development of the malignant phenotype. We analyzed a large series of lymphoid (330 cases) and a smaller series of myeloid (29 cases) malignancies of childhood for p53 mutations by single-strand conformational polymorphism(More)
The paper presents the development of a "proof-of-principle" hands-free and self-contained diagnostic platform for detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) E6/E7 mRNA in clinical specimens. The automated platform performs chip-based sample preconcentration, nucleic acid extraction, amplification, and real-time fluorescent detection with minimal user(More)
Lymphocytes expressing a/3 or-yS T-cell receptors (TCR) represent distinct T-cell populations. Because TCRS genes lie within the TCRa locus, the rearrangement processes, transcription, and translation of TCRS or TCRa variable domain exons require tight regulation. Human precursor B-cell leukemias (eg, the REH cell line) constitute an interesting model to(More)
