Frequent allelic losses on chromosome 13q in human male breast carcinomas.


Loss of genetic material on chromosomes 13q and 17 has been suggested to be of importance in the initiation and progression of female breast cancer, but their involvement is less well illustrated in male breast carcinomas. The present study was designed to investigate the incidence of allelic loss and microsatellite instability for chromosomes 13q, 17p and… (More)
