Genetic and epigenetic alteration in gastric carcinogenesis.
Porto, Portugal. In Helicobacter, 2010
Several genes have been newly associated with gastric carcinogenesis, both through oncogenic activation (MYC, SEMA5A, BCL2L12, RBP2 and BUBR1) and tumor suppressor gene inactivation mechanisms (KLF6, RELN, PTCH1A, CLDN11, and SFRP5).
Cri du Chat syndrome.
Vercelli, Italy. In Orphanet J Rare Dis, 2005
Two genes, Semaphorin F (SEMAF) and delta-catenin (CTNND2), which have been mapped to the "critical regions", are potentially involved in cerebral development and their deletion may be associated with mental retardation in CdCS patients.
