    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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Caisa Marie Hansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; Neurofibromatosis type 2; schwannoma; schwannomatosis; meningioma; array-CGH; chromosome 22; DNA copy number variation; methylation; Molekylärbiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi 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

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Henrik Lilljebjörn; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : 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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mahmoud R. Mansouri; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    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
