Rare case of a heterozygous microdeletion 9q21.11-q21.2: Clinical and genetic characteristics

procedures. The SNP-array karyotyping was performed using microarray Illumina Human CytoSNP-12 (Illumina Inc., San Diego, CA, USA). The microchip contains a total of number of 301,232 SNP variants representative of the entire human genome. Genomic positions refer to the Human Genome February 2009 assembly (GRCh37/hg19). Cytogenetic analysis revealed a low-level mosaicism in blood and skin of the girl with a cell line carrying a small additional marker ring chromosome: mos47,XX,+mar[4]/46,XX[96] (lymphocytes) and mos47,XX,+mar[16]/46,XX [84] (skin fibroblasts).

Single nucleotide polymorphisms in genes MACC1, RAD18, MMP7 and SDF-1a as prognostic factors in resectable colorectal cancer

practice. 16 , 17 Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are molecular factors that might be useful as prognostic markers in CRC. Preliminary genome wide association (GWA) study in non-caucasian population has indicated a role of SNPs in resectable CRC. 18 We hypothesized that SNPs participating in genetic risk for CRC and metastasis might prove as a prognostic factor in resectable CRC. In our study, we have selected SNPs with higher frequency in patients with either local lymph node involvement or systemic dissemination in genes participating in CRC carcinogenesis

Comparative expression analysis of human endogenous retrovirus elements in peripheral blood of children with specific language impairment

the data from the qRT-PCR experiment. The ROC analysis is widely used statistical method for assessing the ability of a potential test marker to distinguish between disease carriers and healthy individuals. It provides a statistical model that presents the sensitivity (or the true positive fraction) of the marker as a function of the false positive fraction (defined as 1-specificity) of the same marker at multiple thresholds. Discriminative performance is assessed by the area enclosed between the ROC curve and the X-axis of the graph, and this area is known as

Associations between vaspin rs2236242 gene polymorphism, walking time and the risk of metabolic syndrome

., amplification for 30 cycles at 95 °C for 1 min., 60 °C for 1 min., and 72 °C for 1 min., and a final extension at 72 °C for 8 min. After DNA amplification, the gel documentation system (InGenius; Syngene, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK) was used for product visualization. The specific genotypes were characterized, respectively: 174 and 378 bp for homozygous T, 248 and 378 bp for homozygous A, and 174, 248 and 378 bp for heterozygous TA ( Figure 1 ).
