Evaluation of chimerism with DNA polymorphisms in bone marrow transplantation
(International Children's Center (I C C), 1997)
Evaluation of chimeric status following allogenlc BMT is an Important tool for monitoring the replacement of host cells with donor cells and for determining the risk of relapse. Polymorphic DNA sequences can be used as ...
p53 mutation with frequent novel codons but not a mutator phenotype in BRCA1-and BRCA2-associated breast tumours
(Nature Publishing Group, 1998)
The status of p53 was investigated in breast tumours arising in germ-line carriers of mutant alleles of BRCA1 and BRCA2 and in a control series of sporadic breast tumours. p53 expression was detected in 20/26 (77%) BRCA1-, ...
A retrospective comparison of allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell and bone marrow transplantation results from a single center: a focus on the incidence of graft-vs.-host disease and relapse
To detect the effect of the stem cell source, allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantations (alloPBSCTs) performed between 1995 and 1997 from human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-identical siblings in 40 patients with ...
Turkish population data on the HLA-DQα, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, and GC loci
We have determined the allele and genotype frequencies of six PCR-based genetic markers HLA-DQα, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8 and GC in the Turkish population (n = 361 for HLA-DQα, and n = 260 for PM). All loci meet Hardy- ...
Human MLH1 deficiency predisposes to hematological malignancy and neurofibromatosis type 1
(American Association for Cancer Research, 1999)
Heterozygous germ-line mutations in the DNA mismatch repair genes lead to hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer. The disease susceptibility of individuals who constitutionally lack both wild-type alleles is unknown. ...
Coagulation factor V gene mutation increases the risk of venous thrombosis in Behcet's disease
(Oxford University Press, 1996)
We investigated the prevalence of the coagulation factor V gene G1691A mutation in 64 patients with Behcet's disease (BD) and in 107 apparently healthy individuals. The mutation was present in the heterozygous state in ...
