    Allelic losses on chromosome 12p12-13 are associated with childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and several solid neoplasias, suggesting the presence of a tumor suppressor locus. The recent construction of a transcription map of this locus has enabled the identification of eight genes, of...

    The genetic risk factors for etoposide-induced leukemia with MLL translocations remain largely unknown. To identify genetic risk factors for and novel characteristics of secondary leukemia, we profiled 116 204 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in germline and paired leukemic cell DNA from...

    Hematologic relapse remains the greatest obstacle to the cure of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Recent studies have shown that patients with increased risk of relapse can be identified by measuring residual leukemic cells, called minimal residual disease (MRD), during clinical...

    DNA copy number changes were studied by comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) on bone marrow samples obtained from 72 patients with childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at diagnosis. The patients had been admitted to the Helsinki University Central Hospital (Finland) between 1982 and...

    Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common childhood cancer; however, its genetic diversity limits investigation into the molecular pathogenesis of disease and development of therapeutic strategies. Here, we engineered mice that conditionally express the E2A-PBX1 fusion oncogene,...

  • Human p16γ, a novel transcriptional variant of p16INK4A, coexpresses with p16INK4A in cancer cells and inhibits cell-cycle progression. Lin, Y.-C.; Diccianni, M. B.; Kim, Y.; Lin, H.-H.; Lee, C.-H.; Lin, R.-J.; Joo, S. H.; Li, J.; Chuang, T.-J.; Yang, A.-S.; Kuo, H.-H.; Tsai, M.-D.; Yu, A. L. // Oncogene;10/25/2007, Vol. 26 Issue 49, p7017 

    The INK4A locus encodes two tumor suppressor genes, p16INK4A and p14ARF, transcribed using alternative exons 1α or 1β spliced onto the same exons 2 and 3. Both p16INK4A and p14ARF are capable of inhibiting the cell-cycle progression, albeit in different manner; p16INK4A is phosphorylation...

    Aims: To study the risk of childhood cancer in relation to parental occupation and related exposures. Methods: Self reported occupational data from mothers and fathers of 3838 children with cancer and 7629 control children were analysed. Odds ratios were calculated for 31 "occupational groups"...

    OBJECTIVE--IKZF1 encoding Ikaros, an essential regulator of lymphopoiesis and immune homeostasis, has been implicated in the development of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (C-ALL). Because recent genome-wide association (GWA) studies have linked a region of the 3'-UTR of IKZF1 with C-ALL...
