Mutational status of naevus-associated melanomas.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Br J Dermatol, Sep 2015
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-one melanomas found in association with a pre-existing naevus were microdissected, after careful selection of cell subpopulations, and submitted to Sanger sequencing of the BRAF, NRAS, c-KIT, PPP6C, STK19 and RAC1 genes.
A meta-analysis of somatic mutations from next generation sequencing of 241 melanomas: a road map for the study of genes with potential clinical relevance.
Nashville, United States. In Mol Cancer Ther, 2014
First, we uncovered several genes whose mutations were more likely associated with BRAF- or NRAS-driven melanomas, including TP53 and COL1A1 with BRAF, and PPP6C, KALRN, PIK3R4, TRPM6, GUCY2C, and PRKAA2 with NRAS.
Identification of thyroid carcinoma related genes with mRMR and shortest path approaches.
Shanghai, China. In Plos One, 2013
In this study, we focus on the transcriptome difference among PTCs, ATCs and normal tissue from a published dataset including 45 normal tissues, 49 PTCs and 11 ATCs, by applying a machine learning method, maximum relevance minimum redundancy, and identified 9 genes (BCL2, MRPS31, ID4, RASAL2, DLG2, MY01B, ZBTB5, PRKCQ and PPP6C) and 1 miscRNA (miscellaneous RNA, LOC646736) as important candidates involved in the progression of thyroid cancer.
"Omics" of human sperm: profiling protein phosphatases.
Aveiro, Portugal. In Omics, 2013
This article examines the "Omics" of human sperm, and reports, for the first time, the identification of three new serine/threonine-protein PPs, PPP1CB, PPP4C, and PPP6C, in human sperm, together with two tyrosine-PPs, MKP1 and PTP1C.
A landscape of driver mutations in melanoma.
Cambridge, United States. In Cell, 2012
Analysis of large-scale melanoma exome data by this approach discovered six novel melanoma genes (PPP6C, RAC1, SNX31, TACC1, STK19, and ARID2), three of which-RAC1, PPP6C, and STK19-harbored recurrent and potentially targetable mutations.
