Improvements in the Analysis Strategy Make Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Analysis a Powerful Tool in the Detection and Characterization of Amplified Chromosomal Regions in Human Tumors

SNP analysis is a very valuable tool for the detection and characterization of high-level chromosomal amplifications in the vast majority of primary tumor samples and its software tool improves the analysis of SNP data and the presentation of the results, bridging the gap to existing CGH knowledge.

Hidden Markov models for the assessment of chromosomal alterations using high-throughput SNP arrays.

This work improves previous approaches that utilize HMM frameworks for inference in high throughput SNP arrays by integrating copy number, genotype calls, and the corresponding measures of uncertainty when available, and demonstrates how confidence scores control smoothing in a probabilistic framework.

Whole genome SNP arrays as a potential diagnostic tool for the detection of characteristic chromosomal aberrations in renal epithelial tumors

Results show that SNP arrays can detect characteristic chromosomal aberrations in paraffin-embedded renal tumors, and thus offer a high-resolution, genome-wide method that can be used as an ancillary study for classification and potentially for prognostic stratification of these tumors.

Genomic assessments of the frequent loss of heterozygosity region on 8p21.3-p22 in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.

Allelic imbalance analysis of oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma by high-density single nucleotide polymorphism arrays using whole-genome amplified DNA

The results from these two array platforms agree closely, but more precise allelic imbalance patterns can be revealed from the 100 K SNP mapping arrayData suggested a frequent loss at 3p11–p12 for advanced stage OTSCC.

Genomic assessments of the frequent LOH region on 8p22-p21.3 in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma

Results suggested that MTUS1 is one of the candidate tumor suppressor gene(s) reside in 8p22-p21.3 for HNSCC, a recently identified candidate tumor suppressing gene that resides in this region.

Transforming science: cancer gene identification.

SNP-Array genotyping and spectral karyotyping reveal uniparental disomy as early mutational event in MSS- and MSI-colorectal cancer cell lines

It was demonstrated that UPD seems to be involved in activation of early-acting tumor suppressor genes in MSS- and MSI- colorectal cancer cell lines and many monoallelic regions identified by SNP-array analysis display no copy number alterations, representing uniparental disomy (UPD).

Fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis with a tissue microarray: ‘FISH and chips’ analysis of pathology archives

A comprehensive morphological approach to pathology archives that consists of fluorescence in situ hybridization with bacterial artificial chromosome probes and screening with tissue microarrays to detect structural changes in chromosomes in specimens of human solid tumors is reviewed.



Genome-wide detection of allelic imbalance using human SNPs and high-density DNA arrays.

The use of high-density oligonucleotide arrays for genome-wide scans for LOH and allelic imbalance in human tumors and the ability to study heterogeneous cell populations is tested and it is found that allelelic imbalance can be detected in the presence of a substantial background of normal cells.

An integrated view of copy number and allelic alterations in the cancer genome using single nucleotide polymorphism arrays.

The simultaneous measurement of DNA copy number changes and loss of heterozygosity events by SNP arrays should strengthen the ability to discover cancer-causing genes and to refine cancer diagnosis.

High resolution analysis of DNA copy number variation using comparative genomic hybridization to microarrays

The implementation of array CGH is demonstrated to be able to measure copy number with high precision in the human genome, and to analyse clinical specimens by obtaining new information on chromosome 20 aberrations in breast cancer.

Loss-of-heterozygosity analysis of small-cell lung carcinomas using single-nucleotide polymorphism arrays

The patterns of LOH are consistent with those obtained by analysis with both SSLPs and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), whereas amplifications rarely are detected by the SNP array, and validate the use of SNP array hybridization for tumor studies.

Molecular cytogenetic characterization of cancer cell alterations.

Genome-wide analysis of DNA copy-number changes using cDNA microarrays

This work describes a cDNA microarray-based CGH method, and its application to DNA copy-number variation analysis in breast cancer cell lines and tumours, and identifies gene amplifications and deletions genome-wide and with high resolution.

Identification of frequent cytogenetic aberrations in hepatocellular carcinoma using gene-expression microarray data

The results suggest that CGMA predictions using gene-expression microarray datasets are a practical alternative to CGH profiling and might be useful for identifying candidate genes within cytogenetically abnormal regions.

Genome-wide analysis of DNA copy number variation in breast cancer using DNA microarrays

In breast cancer cell lines, the cDNA microarray-based comparative genomic hybridisation method is developed, revealing previously unrecognised genomic amplifications and deletions, and new complexities of amplicon structure.

Concurrent analysis of loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and copy number abnormality (CNA) for oral premalignancy progression using the Affymetrix 10K SNP mapping array

Data show that it is feasible to utilize high-density SNP arrays to generate concordant LOH and CNA profiles at high resolution, and a proof of principle is performed on a panel of deletion and trisomy cell lines with known chromosomal alterations.
