We have significantly improved a method originally developed by Liang and Pardee [Science 257 (1992) 967-971] to display a broad spectrum of expressed genes and to detect differences in expression between different cell types. We have analysed various aspects of the technique and have modified it for both, the application to fast and efficient(More)
Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) in combination with PCR and 'GC-clamping' has proven highly efficient as a method for detection of DNA sequence differences. Due to strand dissociation phenomena, however, its use has been limited to the analysis of sequences with a relatively low content of GC pairs. This paper describes how treatment of(More)
The MMAC1/PTEN gene, located at 10q23.3, is a candidate tumor suppressor commonly mutated in glioma. We have studied the pattern of deletion, mutation, and expression of MMAC1/PTEN in 35 unrelated melanoma cell lines. Nine (26%) of the cell lines showed partial or complete homozygous deletion of the MMAC1/PTEN gene, and another six (17%) harbored a mutation(More)
The ATM serine-threonine kinase plays a central role in the cellular response to DNA damage. Germ-line mutations in the ATM gene cause ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T), a multisystem disorder associated with predisposition to lymphoma and acute leukemia. Moreover, somatic ATM mutations have been identified in T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, mantle cell lymphoma,(More)
