  1. 1. Studies of Fusion Oncogenes and Genomic Imbalances in Human Tumors

    Author : Fredrik Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer genetics; fusion oncogene; gene amplification; array CGH; PLAG1; HMGA2; FGFR1; MDM2; pleomorphic adenoma; carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma; liposarcoma;

    Abstract : Cancer is a genetic disease caused by mutations and chromosome rearrangements affecting oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in particular. Molecular analyses of recurrent translocations in hematological disorders, as well as in certain solid tumor types, have shown that they frequently result in fusion oncogenes. READ MORE

    Abstract : Fusion genes are potent oncogenic drivers resulting from exchange of regulatory/coding sequences between two genes. They were originally identified in leukemias but are now recognized as key oncogenic events also in many solid tumors, including salivary gland tumors (SGTs). READ MORE
