Expression status of candidate genes in mesothelioma tissues and cell lines.
Pisa, Italy. In Mutat Res, 2015
Nine genes (ACSL1, CCNO, CFB, PDGFRB, SULF1, TACC1, THBS2, TIMP3, XPOT) were deregulated with statistical significance in both cell lines, 12 (ASS1, CCNB1, CDH11, COL1A1, CXADR, EIF4G1, GALNT7, ITGA4, KRT5, PTGIS, RAN, SOD1) in at least one cell line, whereas 7 (DSP, HEG1, MCM4, MSLN, NME2, NMU, TNPO2) were close but did not reach the statistical significance in any of the cell line.
Transforming fusions of FGFR and TACC genes in human glioblastoma.
New York City, United States. In Science, 2012
study reports that a small subset of glioblastoma multiforme tumors harbors oncogenic chromosomal translocations that fuse in-frame the tyrosine kinase coding domains of fibroblast growth factor receptor genes(FGFR1 or FGFR3) to the transforming acidic coiled-coil coding domains of TACC1 or TACC3; the FGFR-TACC fusion protein displays oncogenic activity
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.
