Clonal trisomy 8 chromosome abnormalities can be detected in 15% of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The most common form of change is complete gain of the whole chromosome 8, followed by partial gains in unbalanced forms. The biologic consequences of trisomy 8 remain unclear, but a gene dosage effect is suspected. We report on three patients(More)
Twenty-four individuals were investigated that spanned six generations in a Chinese family affected with an apparently autosomal dominant form of dentinogenesis imperfecta type II (DGI-II, OMIM #125490). All affected individuals presented with typical, clinical and radiographic features of DGI-II, but without bilateral progressive high-frequency(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Genome-wide association studies found that the common allele T of single nucleotide polymorphism rs11206510 on chromosome 1p32 was associated with increased low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels (LDL-C) and with risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) in white populations. The goals of this study are to determine whether rs11206510(More)
A single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs1122608 on chromosome 19p13.2 and in the BRG1/SMARCA4 gene was previously associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). CAD and ischemic stroke are both associated with atherosclerosis. Thus, we tested the hypothesis that rs1122608 is associated with ischemic stroke. Further studies were used to identify the most(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia at the clinic. Recent GWAS identified several variants associated with AF, but they account for <10% of heritability. Gene-gene interaction is assumed to account for a significant portion of missing heritability. Among GWAS loci for AF, only three were replicated in the Chinese Han population,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE ANRIL has long been considered as the strongest candidate gene at the 9p21 locus, robustly associated with stroke and coronary artery disease. However, the underlying molecular mechanism remains unknown. The present study works to elucidate such a mechanism. METHODS Using expression quantitative loci analysis, we identified(More)
Several large-scale meta-GWAS identified significant association between SNP rs17465637 in the MIA3 gene and coronary artery disease (CAD) in the European ancestry populations. However, three follow-up replication studies in the Chinese populations yielded inconsistent results. In order to unequivocally determine whether SNP rs17465637 is associated with(More)
Histone demethylase KDM2A has been reported to be dysregulated in lung cancer. However, its function in gastric cancer remains poorly understood. Here, it was found that the expression level of KDM2A was increased in gastric cancer tissues. Moreover, forced expression of KDM2A in gastric cancer cells promoted cell growth and migration, while the knockdown(More)
A reciprocal t(11;22)(q24;q12) is found in 85% of Ewing sarcomas (ES) cases. We report a case of a child with ES, in whom trisomy 8 was observed as the sole chromosomal abnormality. Fluorescence in situ hybridization---using a set of probes that localize to 22q12 (EWS) and 11q24 (FLI-1) and usually show the translocation as fusion (red-green) signal on(More)
BACKGROUND Genomic variants identified by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) explain <20% of heritability of coronary artery disease (CAD), thus many risk variants remain missing for CAD. Identification of new variants may unravel new biological pathways and genetic mechanisms for CAD. To identify new variants associated with CAD, we developed a(More)
