Transcription-mediated chimeric RNAs in prostate cancer: time to revisit old hypothesis?
Hangzhou, China. In Omics, 31 Oct 2014
We attempted to confirm one of the fusion genes, USP9Y-TTTY15, by reverse transcription PCR, but detected the presence of the USP9Y-TTTY15 fusion transcript in cancer samples, nonmalignant prostate tissues, and normal tissues from other organs, demonstrating that it is a transcription-induced chimeric RNA, which is commonly produced in normal tissues.
USP10: friend and foe.
Leiden, Netherlands. In Cell, 2010
In this issue, Yuan et al. (2010) identify the deubiquitinating protease USP10 as a new regulator of p53 in the DNA damage response and tumor development.
Spermatogenesis in a man with complete deletion of USP9Y.
Siena, Italy. In N Engl J Med, 2009
Deletions in the azoospermia factor region AZFa on the human Y chromosome and, more specifically, in the region that encompasses the ubiquitin-specific peptidase 9, Y-linked gene USP9Y have been implicated in infertility associated with oligospermia and azoospermia.
Role of the AZFa candidate genes in male infertility.
Padova, Italy. In J Endocrinol Invest, 2000
It contains three genes, USP9Y, DBY and UTY, but only the former two can be at present considered candidate genes for the infertile phenotype associated with deletion of this interval.
