  1. 1. Transcriptomic and functional studies of fusion oncogene-driven salivary gland tumors

    Författare :Maryam K. Afshari; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fusion oncogene; MYB; NFIB; PLAG1; HMGA2; adenoid cystic carcinoma; pleomorphic adenoma; targeted therapy;

    Sammanfattning : Fusion genes are potent oncogenic drivers resulting from exchange of regulatory/coding sequences between two genes. They were originally identified in leukemias but are now recognized as key oncogenic events also in many solid tumors, including salivary gland tumors (SGTs). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies of Fusion Oncogenes and Genomic Imbalances in Human Tumors

    Författare :Fredrik Persson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cancer genetics; fusion oncogene; gene amplification; array CGH; PLAG1; HMGA2; FGFR1; MDM2; pleomorphic adenoma; carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma; liposarcoma;

    Sammanfattning : Cancer is a genetic disease caused by mutations and chromosome rearrangements affecting oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in particular. Molecular analyses of recurrent translocations in hematological disorders, as well as in certain solid tumor types, have shown that they frequently result in fusion oncogenes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Functional characterization of the liopsarcoma-associated fusion oncigene FUS-DDIT3

    Författare :Melker Göransson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Myxoid round cell liposarcoma; fusion oncogenes; FUS; DDIT3; tumor development; cell cycle regulators; IL6; IL8; NFkappaB.;

    Sammanfattning : Fusion genes represent a growing class of translocation-derived potent oncogenes that frequently show tumor type-specific expression. We have studied the myxoid/round cell liposarcoma (MLS/RCLS)-specific FUS-DDIT3 fusion, with the aim of functionally characterizing this fusion oncogene in sarcoma development. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase mutations and downstream signalling

    Författare :Christina Schönherr; Ruth H Palmer; Aristidis Moustakas; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase; oncogene; RTK; neuroblastoma; crizotinib; NVP-TAE684; gain-of-function; MYCN; transcription factor; small GTPase; Rap1; C3G; PC12 cells; neurite outgrowth; molecular cell biology; molekylär cellbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The oncogene Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) is a Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) and was initially discovered as the fusion protein NPM (nucleophosmin)-ALK in a subset of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphomas (ALCL). Since then more fusion proteins have been identified in a variety of cancers. LÄS MER
