    Background: Polymorphisms within the MTHFD1L gene were previously associated with risk of neural tube defects in Ireland. We sought to test the most significant MTHFD1L polymorphisms for an association with risk of cleft in an Irish cohort. This required the development of a new melting curve...

    The study of de novo point mutations (new germline mutations arising from the gametes of the parents) remained largely static until the arrival of next-generation sequencing technologies, which made both whole-exome sequencing (WES) and whole-genome sequencing (WGS) feasible in practical terms....

    Objectives: Since development of oral squamous cell cancer (OSCC) is triggered by various noxa, different variants of the antioxidant glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) can counteract toxic compounds (e.g., tobacco smoke). Because different polymorphisms of GST are known to have an increased...

  • No Evidence for Linkage and Association Between 4q Microsatellite Markers and Nonsyndromic Cleft Lip and Palate in Chilean Case-Parents Trios. Blanco, Rafael; Suazo, José; Santos, José Luis; Carreño, Hernán; Palomino, Hernán; Jara, Lilian // Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal;May2005, Vol. 42 Issue 3, p267 

    Objective: Nonsyndromic cleft lip/palate (NSCLP) has the characteristics of a complex genetic trait. Linkage and association studies have suggested that one or more clefting loci may be located on chromosome 4q. The goal of this study was to evaluate the possible linkage and association due to...

  • β2-Adrenergic receptor gene variants and risk for autism in the AGRE cohort. Cheslack-Postava, K.; Fallin, M. D.; Avramopoulos, D.; Connors, S. L.; Zimmerman, A. W.; Eberhart, C. G.; Newschaffer, C. J. // Molecular Psychiatry;Mar2007, Vol. 12 Issue 3, p283 

    The β2-adrenergic receptor is part of the catecholamine system, and variants at two polymorphic sites in the gene coding for the receptor (ADRB2) confer increased activity. Overstimulation of this receptor may alter brain development, and has been linked to autism in non-identical twins. The...

    Multiple lines of genetic evidence suggest a role for CNTNAP2 in autism. To assess its population impact we studied 2148 common single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using transmission disequilibrium test (TDT) across the entire ~3.3 Mb CNTNAP2 locus in 186 (408 trios) multiplex and 323 simplex...

    Smoking and the deletion of GSTM1 variant are two risk factors of lung cancer. This meta-analysis was performed to examine the GSTM1-smoking interaction on lung cancer in the Chinese population. PubMed, Web of Science, and other Chinese databases were searched to include all the related studies....

  • Nonparametric Disequilibrium Mapping of Functional Sites Using Haplotypes of Multiple Tightly Linked Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism Markers. Rong Cheng; Ma, Jennie Z.; Wright, Fred A.; Shili Lin; Xin Gao; Daolong Wang; Elston, Robert C.; Li, Ming D. // Genetics;Jul2003, Vol. 164 Issue 3, p1175 

    As the speed and efficiency of genotyping single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) increase, using the SNP map, it becomes possible to evaluate the extent to which a common haplotype contributes to the risk of disease. In this study we propose a new procedure for mapping functional sites or...

    Introduction: Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication of diabetes mellitus that affects retinal blood vessels. Chronic extra cellular hyperglycemia in diabetes stimulates reaction oxygen species (ROS) production, and increase oxidative stress. Glutathion S-transferases (GSTs) enzymes have...

  • Evidence for asthma susceptibility genes on chromosome 11 in an African-American population. Huang, Shau-Ku; Mathias, Rasika A.; Ehrlich, Eva; Plunkett, Beverly; Liu, Xin; Cutting, Garry R.; Wang, Xin-Jing; Li, Xiao-Dong; Togias, Alkis; Barnes, Kathleen C.; Malveaux, Floyd; Rich, Stephen; Mellen, Beverly; Lange, Ethan; Beaty, Terri H. // Human Genetics;Jun2003, Vol. 113 Issue 1, p71 

    Initial genome-wide scan data provided suggestive evidence for linkage of the asthma phenotype in African-American (AA), but not Caucasian, families to chromosome 11q markers (peak at D11S1985; LOD=2). To refine this region, mapping analysis of 91 AA families (51 multiplex families and 40...
