Nanopore sequencing detects structural variants in cancer.
Baltimore, United States. In Cancer Biol Ther, Feb 2016
We have tested nanopore sequencing to detect a series of well-characterized SVs, including large deletions, inversions, and translocations that inactivate the CDKN2A/p16 and SMAD4/DPC4 tumor suppressor genes in pancreatic cancer.
RAS signaling and anti-RAS therapy: lessons learned from genetically engineered mouse models, human cancer cells, and patient-related studies.
Houston, United States. In Acta Biochim Biophys Sin (shanghai), Jan 2016
Studies on clinical specimens also demonstrated that KRAS mutations are present in premalignant tissues and that most of KRAS mutant human cancers have co-mutations in other cancer driver genes, including TP53, STK11, CDKN2A, and KMT2C in lung cancer; APC, TP53, and PIK3CA in colon cancer; and TP53, CDKN2A, SMAD4, and MED12 in pancreatic cancer.
The Mendelian colorectal cancer syndromes.
Oxford, United Kingdom. In Ann Clin Biochem, Nov 2015
Most of the approximately 13 high-penetrance genes that predispose to CRC primarily predispose to colorectal polyps, and each gene is associated with a specific type of polyp, whether conventional adenomas (APC, MUTYH, POLE, POLD1, NTHL1), juvenile polyps (SMAD4, BMPR1A), Peutz-Jeghers hamartomas (LKB1/STK11) and mixed polyps of serrated and juvenile types (GREM1).
It's a SMAD/SMAD World.
Houston, United States. In Cell, Jul 2015
DPC4/SMAD4 mutations are associated with aggressive pancreatic cancer.
Whole genomes redefine the mutational landscape of pancreatic cancer.
Brisbane, Australia. In Nature, Mar 2015
Chromosomal rearrangements leading to gene disruption were prevalent, affecting genes known to be important in pancreatic cancer (TP53, SMAD4, CDKN2A, ARID1A and ROBO2) and new candidate drivers of pancreatic carcinogenesis (KDM6A and PREX2).
