Molecular analysis of Fanconi anemia: the experience of the Bone Marrow Failure Study Group of the Italian Association of Pediatric Onco-Hematology.
Italy. In Haematologica, 28 Mar 2014
We identified 108 distinct variants of the FANCA, FANCG, FANCC, FANCD2, and FANCB genes in 85, 9, 3, 2, and 1 families, respectively.
Massively parallel sequencing, aCGH, and RNA-Seq technologies provide a comprehensive molecular diagnosis of Fanconi anemia.
Bethesda, United States. In Blood, Jun 2013
The combination of TruSeq-targeted capture, aCGH, and RNA-seq enabled us to identify the complementation group and biallelic germline mutations in all 27 families: FANCA (7), FANCB (3), FANCC (3), FANCD1 (1), FANCD2 (3), FANCF (2), FANCG (2), FANCI (1), FANCJ (2), and FANCL (3).
Oxidative stress in Fanconi anaemia: from cells and molecules towards prospects in clinical management.
Napoli, Italy. In Biol Chem, 2012
Some FA gene products involved in redox homeostasis can be summarized as follows: (a) FANCA, FANCC, and FANCG interact with cytochrome P450-related activities and/or respond to oxidative damage; (b) FANCD2 in OS response interacts with forkhead box O3 and ataxia telangiectasia mutated protein; (c) FANCG is found in mitochondria and interacts with PRDX3, and FA-G cells display distorted mitochondria and decreased peroxidase activity; (d) FANCJ (BACH1/BRIP1) is a repressor of haeme oxygenase-1 gene and senses oxidative base damage; (e) antioxidants, such as tempol and resveratrol decrease cancer incidence and haematopoietic defects in Fancd2(-/-) mice.
Paris, France. In Hematology Am Soc Hematol Educ Program, 2010
Fifteen FANC genes have been identified to date, the most prevalent being FANCA, FANCC, FANCG, and FANCD2.
A possible approach for stem cell gene therapy of Fanconi anemia.
Waterloo, Canada. In Curr Gene Ther, 2009
13 complementation groups are currently discovered, and 13 distinct genes have been cloned (FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCD1, FANCD2, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG, FNACI, FANCJ, FANCL, FANCM, FANCN).
The BRCA1-interacting helicase BRIP1 is deficient in Fanconi anemia.
New York City, United States. In Nat Genet, 2005
Seven Fanconi anemia-associated proteins (FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG and FANCL) form a nuclear Fanconi anemia core complex that activates the monoubiquitination of FANCD2, targeting FANCD2 to BRCA1-containing nuclear foci.
[A new approach for studying the retinal and choroidal circulation].
Saitama, Japan. In Nihon Ganka Gakkai Zasshi, 2004
2) Measurement of OS levels in eyes with retinal circulatory disturbances: Eleven eyes of 10 patients with central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO), which showed various degrees of severity, and 4 fellow unaffected eyes of selected patients were examined by both fluorescein angiography (FAG) and the new SRI system.
