Complex chromosome 22 rearrangements in astrocytic tumors identified using microsatellite and chromosome 22 tile path array analysis.

Many studies have reported chromosome 22 as being abnormal in astrocytic tumors. In an attempt to map precisely the abnormal region or regions that potentially harbor tumor-suppressor genes or oncogenes, we constructed a chromosome 22 tile path array covering 82% of 22q with the use of 441 chromosome 22 clones. A 10-Mb whole-genome array consisting of 270… CONTINUE READING
