  1. 1. Array-based Characterization of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia : - with Focus on Subsets Carrying Stereotyped B-cell Receptors

    Author : Millaray Marincevic; Richard Rosenquist; Andreas Rosenwald; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic lymphocytic leukemia; array-based characterization; stereotyped B-cell receptors; subsets; antigens; SNP array; gene expression array; methylation array; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Clinical Genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : In chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), the presence of multiple subsets expressing ‘stereotyped’ B-cell receptors (BCRs) has implicated antigen(s) in leukemogenesis. These stereotyped subsets display similar immunoglobulin (IG) gene usage, almost identical complementarity determining region 3’s and may share clinical features. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular Genetic and DNA Methylation Profiling of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia : A Focus on Divergent Prognostic Subgroups and Subsets

    Abstract : Advancements in prognostication have improved the subdivision of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) into diverse prognostic subgroups. In CLL, IGHV unmutated and IGHV3-21 genes are associated with a poor-prognosis, conversely, IGHV mutated genes with a favourable outcome. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Human Y chromosome and its role in the developing male nervous system

    Abstract : Recent research demonstrated that besides a role in sex determination and male fertility, the Y chromosome is involved in additional functions including prostate cancer, sex-specific effects on the brain and behaviour, graft-versus-host disease, nociception, aggression and autoimmune diseases. The results presented in this thesis include an analysis of sex-biased genes encoded on the X and Y chromosomes of rodents. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular characterization of neuroblastoma tumors - a basis for personalized medicine

    Author : Hanna Kryh; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Neuroblastoma; Cancer; Tumor; SNP-array; Micro array; DNA copy number;

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma is a very heterogeneous tumor, with a clinical course ranging from spontaneous regression to aggressive tumor growth. A proper stratification of the patients into different risk groups is therefore important in order to provide the most suitable treatment for each patient. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
