Profilin 1 (PFN1) is a regulator of the microfilament system and is involved in various signaling pathways. It interacts with many cytoplasmic and nuclear ligands. The importance of PFN1 for human tissue differentiation has been demonstrated by the findings that human cancer cells, expressing conspicuously low PFN1 levels, adopt a nontumorigenic phenotype(More)
The GLI gene encodes a transcription factor harboring five zinc finger motifs that bind to DNA in a sequence-specific manner. The gene was originally identified because of its amplification in a human glioblastoma, and previous studies have shown it to be amplified in a significant proportion of mesenchymal tumors, such as childhood sarcomas. Here we(More)
We have identified a high frequency of loss of heterozygosity (LOH) on the human chromosome region 8p12-p22 in a panel of microdissected familial (86% LOH) and sporadic (74% LOH) breast tumours. The two most frequently deleted regions were defined around marker D8S133 and in a broader centromeric region bounded by markers D8S137 and D8S339. We cannot(More)
The relation between proliferation and apoptosis was studied in colorectal mucosal biopsies (N = 41), tubular adenomas (TA) (N = 104) and tubulovillous adenomas (TVA) (N = 34) from 37 FAP patients. Proliferative activity was determined by cell cycle distribution analysis. In addition, transcriptional capacity was determined by chromatin in situ testing. For(More)
