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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Magdalena Benetkiewicz; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : 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; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Genetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi 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

  2. 2. Development and Application of Microarray-Based Comparative Genomic Hybridization Analysis of Neurofibromatosis Type-2, Schwannomatosis and Related Tumors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Patrick Buckley; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Genomic microarray; Array-CGH; DNA copy number variation; Neurofibromatosis type-2; Schwannomatosis; Schwannoma; Meningioma; NF2; Chromosome 22; Genetik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Clinical genetics; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Neurofibromatosis type-2 (NF2) is an autosomal dominant disorder with the clinical hallmark of bilateral eighth cranial nerve schwannomas. However, the diagnostic criterion is complicated by the presence of a variable phenotype, with the severe form presenting with additional tumors such as peripheral schwannoma, meningioma and ependymoma.
