Myelodysplastic syndromes: Contemporary review and how we treat.
Rochester, United States. In Am J Hematol, Jan 2016
With the advent of next generation sequencing, recurrent somatic mutations in genes involved in epigenetic regulation (TET2, ASXL1, EZH2, DNMT3A, IDH1/2), RNA splicing (SF3B1, SRSF2, U2AF1, ZRSR2), DNA damage response (TP53), transcriptional regulation (RUNX1, BCOR, ETV6) and signal transduction (CBL, NRAS, JAK2) have been identified in MDS.
Genetic landscape of recurrent ASXL1, U2AF1, SF3B1, SRSF2, and EZH2 mutations in 304 Chinese patients with myelodysplastic syndromes.
Shanghai, China. In Tumour Biol, Nov 2015
A total of 304 Chinese MDS patients were screened for known mutations in five genes (ASXL1, U2AF1, SF3B1, SRSF2, and EZH2) using next-generation sequencing.
Integrating genetics and epigenetics in myelodysplastic syndromes: advances in pathogenesis and disease evolution.
Madrid, Spain. In Br J Haematol, 2014
Recent studies are shedding light on the molecular basis of myelodysplasia and how mutations and epimutations can induce and promote this neoplastic process through aberrant transcription factor function (RUNX1, ETV6, TP53), kinase signalling (FLT3, NRAS, KIT, CBL) and epigenetic deregulation (TET2, IDH1/2, DNMT3A, EZH2, ASXL1, SF3B1, U2AF1, SRSF2, ZRSR2).
Splicing factor mutations and cancer.
Kyoto, Japan. In Wiley Interdiscip Rev Rna, 2014
These mutations were heterozygous and mainly affected U2AF1 (U2AF35), SRSF2 (SC35), SF3B1 (SF3B155 or SAP155), and ZRSR2 (URP), which are engaged in the initial steps of RNA splicing, including 3' splice-site recognition, and occur in a large mutually exclusive pattern, suggesting a common impact of these mutations on RNA splicing.
Prognostic score including gene mutations in chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.
Villejuif, France. In J Clin Oncol, 2013
PATIENTS AND METHODS: We genotyped ASXL1 and up to 18 other genes including epigenetic (TET2, EZH2, IDH1, IDH2, DNMT3A), splicing (SF3B1, SRSF2, ZRSF2, U2AF1), transcription (RUNX1, NPM1, TP53), and signaling (NRAS, KRAS, CBL, JAK2, FLT3) regulators in 312 patients with CMML.
hnRNP A1 proofreads 3' splice site recognition by U2AF.
Barcelona, Spain. In Mol Cell, 2012
hnRNP A1 forms a ternary complex with the U2AF heterodimer on AG-containing/uridine-rich RNAs, while it displaces U2AF from non-AG-containing/uridine-rich RNAs, an activity that requires the glycine-rich domain of hnRNP A1
