    Author : Kiran K. Mantripragada; Jan P. Dumanski; Peter Lichter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; array-CGH; neurofibromatoses; neurofibromatosis type 1; neurofibromatosis type 2; schwannomatosis; DiGeorge syndrome; 22q11 syndrome; chromosome 22; genomic microarrays; DNA copy number; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) has emerged as a versatile platform with a wide range of applications in molecular genetics. This thesis focuses on the development of array-CGH with a specific aim to approach disease-related questions through improved strategies in array construction and enhanced resolution of analysis.

  2. 2. Development and Application of Human Chromosome 22 Genomic Microarray : Chromosome 22-Associated Disorders Analyzed by Array-Based Comparative Genomic Hybridization

    Author : Magdalena Benetkiewicz; Jan Dumanski; Niklas Dahl; Frank Speleman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular genetics; DNA copy number changes; chromosome 22; genomic microarray; array-CGH; schwannoma; neurofibromatosis type 2; ovarian carcinoma; breast cancer; Wilms tumor; Genetik; Genetics; Genetik;

    Abstract : The array-based form of comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) is a new methodology that has shown to be of significant importance. This thesis focuses on the development of array-CGH with the aim to define candidate regions/genes on chromosome 22 in a wide spectrum of cancer-related conditions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Analysis of Genetic Alterations in Patients Affected with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 and its Associated Tumors

    Author : Caisa Marie Hansson; Jan P. Dumanski; Juha Kere; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Neurofibromatosis type 2; schwannoma; schwannomatosis; meningioma; array-CGH; chromosome 22; DNA copy number variation; methylation; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) is an autosomal dominant disorder with the clinical hallmark of bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VS). Patients affected by a severe NF2 phenotype also presents with peripheral schwannomas, meningiomas and ependymomas. The closely related disorder schwannomatosis also displays multiple schwannomas, but never VS. READ MORE

  4. 4. Genomic characterization of ETV6/RUNX1-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia

    Author : Henrik Lilljebjörn; Avdelningen för klinisk genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SNP array; array CGH; ETV6 RUNX1-positive ALL; childhood ALL; exome sequencing;

    Abstract : The t(12;21) translocation generates the ETV6/RUNX1 fusion gene, present in 25% of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This fusion gene is important for leukemia development but is not sufficient for leukemia to arise. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular Characterisation of Structural Chromosomal Abnormalities Associated with Congenital Disorders

    Author : Mahmoud R. Mansouri; Niklas Dahl; Hans Van Bokhoven; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Genetics; Chromosomal abnormalities; Mental retardation; Hypospadias and anal malformation; Premature ovarian failure; Autism; Array-CGH; ZDHHC15; Genetik;

    Abstract : Chromosomal abnormalities are defined as changes in the chromosome structure and fall in one of two categories. The first category is numerical alterations while the second category consists of structural abnormalities. Structural chromosomal abnormalities do not always interrupt genes in order to cause disease. READ MORE
