    AZFc deletions cause a significant phenotypic heterogeneity with respect to spermatogenesis; however, the reason for this is poorly understood. Recently, testis-specific protein Y-encoded 1 (TSPY1) copy number variation (CNV) was determined to be a potential genetic modifier of spermatogenesis....

    Genetic dissection of complex diseases is both important and challenging. The human major histocompatibility complex is involved in many human diseases and genetic mechanisms. This highly polymorphic chromosome region has been extensively studied in Caucasians but not as well in Asians. Thus, we...

    Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease with complex genetic traits. Multiple sequence variations have been associated with AS, but explained only a proportion of heritability. The studies herein aimed to explore potential associations between genomic copy number (CN)...

J. // BMC Genomics;2014, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p1 

    Background Genetic variation associated with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes has immunological functions and is associated with autoimmune diseases. To date, large-scale studies involving classical HLA genes have been limited by time-consuming and expensive HLA-typing technologies. To reduce...

    Through historical investigation and archaeological excavation, the Suikunto Port in Mattaw, Tainan, has been proven to be the last remaining relic of the interior ports of the Qing dynasty in Taiwan. This inland Mattaw Street area, near the Tohong sea, became the location for the settlement of...

  • Genome-wide copy number variation study in anorectal malformations. Wong, Emily H.M.; Cui, Long; Ng, Chun-Laam; Tang, Clara S.M.; Liu, Xue-Lai; So, Man-Ting; Yip, Benjamin Hon-Kei; Cheng, Guo; Zhang, Ruizhong; Tang, Wai-Kiu; Yang, Wanling; Lau, Yu-Lung; Baum, Larry; Kwan, Patrick; Sun, Liang-Dan; Zuo, Xian-Bo; Ren, Yun-Qing; Yin, Xian-Yong; Miao, Xiao-Ping; Liu, Jianjun // Human Molecular Genetics;Feb2013, Vol. 22 Issue 3, p621 

    Anorectal malformations (ARMs, congenital obstruction of the anal opening) are among the most common birth defects requiring surgical treatment (2–5/10 000 live-births) and carry significant chronic morbidity. ARMs present either as isolated or as part of the phenotypic spectrum of some...

    Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute systemic vasculitis syndrome that primarily affects infants and young children. Its etiology is unknown; however, epidemiological findings suggest that genetic predisposition underlies disease susceptibility. Taiwan has the third-highest incidence of KD in the...

    The HUGO Pan-Asian SNP consortium conducted the largest survey to date of human genetic diversity among Asians by sampling 1,719 unrelated individuals among 71 populations from China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. We have...

  • The rs1014290 Polymorphism of the SLC2A9 Gene Is Associated with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in Han Chinese. Wan-Chun Liu; Chi-ChihHung; Szu-Chia Chen; Ming-Yen Lin; Ling-I Chen; Daw-Yang Hwang; Jer-Ming Chang; Jer-Chia Tsai; Hung-Chun Chen; Shang-Jyh Hwang // Experimental Diabetes Research;2011, Special section p1 

    Aims. The SLC2A9 gene encodes the glucose transporter 9, with the abilities of transporting both glucose and uric acid and is involved in the pancreatic glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. The single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of SLC2A9 accounted for 5% variance of serum uric acid (UA)....
