    University dissertation from Umeå : Medicinsk biovetenskap

    Author : Magnus Hultdin; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomedicine; telomere; telomerase; fluorescence in situ hybridization; flow cytometry; flow-FISH; replication timing; chronic lymphocytic leukemia; immunoglobulin gene; prognosis; Biomedicin; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Microbiology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Mikrobiologi; Medical Cell Biology; medicinsk cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The telomeres are specialized structures at the end of the chromosomes composed of the repeated DNA sequence (TTAGGG)n and specific proteins bound to the DNA. The telomeres protect the chromosomes from degradation and end to end fusions. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Bröstcancer är i dag den vanligaste cancerformen hos kvinnor i västvärlden. I Sverige insjuknar varje år drygt 6 600 kvinnor, och detta innebär att en av tio kvinnor kommer någon gång under sin livstid att utveckla bröstcancer. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genetic characterization of non-Hodgkin lymphomas using in situ hybridization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Svetlana Lagercrantz; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Myelodysplastic syndrome; non-Hodgkin lymphoma; fluorescencein situ hybridization; LAZ3BCL6 expression; chromosome rearrangements;

    Abstract : Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) has been shown to be a valuable andimportant technique in cytogenetics, as a complement to traditional bandinganalysis. This thesis focus on the characterization of chromosomalrearrangements in two hematological neoplasias, myelodysplastic syndrome(MDS) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) using FISH. READ MORE

  4. 4. Trisomies in Hematologic Malignancies

    University dissertation from Section of Clinical Genetics, Institution of Laboratory Medicine, Lund University Hospital

    Author : Kajsa Paulsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; cytogenetik; Genetik; cytogenetics; Genetics; leukemia; chromosome aberration; trisomy;

    Abstract : Acquired clonal chromosome aberrations, closely associated with leukemogenesis, are found in many hematologic malignancies. Although the balanced rearrangements, such as translocations and inversions, are the ones most commonly thought of in the context of leukemias, gains of chromosomes ? e.g.. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fluorescence in situ hybridization for the detection of genetic alterations in prostate and bladder malignancies : Significance as a genetic marker to predict the patient prognosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Abstract : Prostate cancer and bladder cancer are common urological malignancies in man, while a lack of basic information underlying the oncogenesis and the tumor progression makes it difficult to form therapeutic strategies against these malignancies. Recent advances of molecular biology revealed that genetic alteration play a crucial role in the oncogenesis and progression of these tumors. READ MORE
