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
The role of clathrin in mitotic spindle organisation.
Liverpool, United Kingdom. In J Cell Sci, 2012
This mitotic function is unrelated to the role of clathrin in membrane trafficking and occurs in partnership with two other spindle proteins: transforming acidic coiled-coil protein 3 (TACC3) and colonic hepatic tumour overexpressed gene (ch-TOG; also known as cytoskeleton-associated protein 5, CKAP5).
Genetic variants in urinary bladder cancer: collective power of the "wimp SNPs".
Dortmund, Germany. In Arch Toxicol, 2011
These SNPs are located next to the following genes: MYC, TP63, PSCA, the TERT-CLPTM1L locus, FGFR3, TACC3, NAT2, CBX6, APOBEC3A, CCNE1, and UGT1A.
