Expanding Our Understanding of Nevogenesis: Copy Number Gain of Chromosome 15q in Melanocytic Nevi Is Associated With Distinct Histomorphologic Findings.

Am J Surg Pathol 2021 06;45(6):825-831

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon.

As the landscape of melanomagenesis becomes better refined through increasingly detailed schema grounded in distinct clinicopathologic-molecular pathways, the stepwise process and variations of molecular nevogenesis have largely remained elusive. Herein, we present a series of 8 melanocytic nevi in patients ranging from 40 to 74 years of age (median: 59.5 y), which demonstrated a reproducible constellation of histomorphologic features as well as a copy number gain of the long arm of chromosome 15 (15q).

Embryonic progenitor pools generate diversity in fine-scale excitatory cortical subnetworks.

Nat Commun 2019 11 19;10(1):5224. Epub 2019 Nov 19.

Department of Pharmacology, University of Oxford, Mansfield Road, Oxford, OX1 3QT, UK.

The mammalian neocortex is characterized by a variety of neuronal cell types and precise arrangements of synaptic connections, but the processes that generate this diversity are poorly understood. Here we examine how a pool of embryonic progenitor cells consisting of apical intermediate progenitors (aIPs) contribute to diversity within the upper layers of mouse cortex. In utero labeling combined with single-cell RNA-sequencing reveals that aIPs can generate transcriptionally defined glutamatergic cell types, when compared to neighboring neurons born from other embryonic progenitor pools.

Vitamin D Receptor Gene Polymorphism: An Important Predictor of Arthritis Development.

Biomed Res Int 2019 18;2019:8326246. Epub 2019 Mar 18.

Cell and Molecular Biology Lab, Department of Zoology, University of the Punjab, Quaid-i-Azam Campus, Lahore 54590, Pakistan.

Vitamin D is an anti-inflammatory molecule and has a role in prevention of arthritis development. Biologically active form 1, 25(OH)D3 of vitamin D can only exert its action after binding its definite vitamin D receptor encoded by VDR gene. VDR gene polymorphism leads to dysfunctioning of 1, 25(OH)D ultimately disease onset. Read More

Genomic alterations important for the prognosis in patients with follicular lymphoma treated in SWOG study S0016.

Blood 2019 01 16;133(1):81-93. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA.

Although recent advances in molecular genetics have enabled improved risk classification of follicular lymphoma (FL) using, for example, the m7-FLIPI score, the impact on treatment has been limited. We aimed to assess the prognostic significance of copy-number aberrations (CNAs) and copy-neutral loss of heterozygosity (cnLOH) identified by chromosome genomic-array testing (CGAT) at FL diagnosis using prospectively collected clinical trial specimens from 255 patients enrolled in the SWOG study S0016. The impact of genomic aberrations was assessed for early progression (progressed or died within 2 years after registration), progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS). Read More

Low-Bias RNA Sequencing of the HIV-2 Genome from Blood Plasma.

J Virol 2019 01 10;93(1). Epub 2018 Dec 10.

Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom

Accurate determination of the genetic diversity present in the HIV quasispecies is critical for the development of a preventative vaccine: in particular, little is known about viral genetic diversity for the second type of HIV, HIV-2. A better understanding of HIV-2 biology is relevant to the HIV vaccine field because a substantial proportion of infected people experience long-term viral control, and prior HIV-2 infection has been associated with slower HIV-1 disease progression in coinfected subjects. The majority of traditional and next-generation sequencing methods have relied on target amplification prior to sequencing, introducing biases that may obscure the true signals of diversity in the viral population.

Impact of copy neutral loss of heterozygosity and total genome aberrations on survival in myelodysplastic syndrome.

Mod Pathol 2018 04 15;31(4):569-580. Epub 2017 Dec 15.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA, USA.

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of diseases with varying genetic aberrations. Half of MDS patients have normal karyotype, obscuring the underlying condition indicating a need for new markers for improved diagnostics and prognosis. We performed a retrospective review of sequential MDS patients who underwent chromosomal genetic array testing (CGAT) between November 2008 and March 2014. Read More

Identification of genetic variants affecting vitamin D receptor binding and associations with autoimmune disease.

Hum Mol Genet 2017 06;26(11):2164-2176

Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Oxford, Oxford OX3 7BN, UK.

Large numbers of statistically significant associations between sentinel SNPs and case-control status have been replicated by genome-wide association studies. Nevertheless, few underlying molecular mechanisms of complex disease are currently known. We investigated whether variation in binding of a transcription factor, the vitamin D receptor (VDR), whose activating ligand vitamin D has been proposed as a modifiable factor in multiple disorders, could explain any of these associations.

Adult Low-Hypodiploid Acute B-Lymphoblastic Leukemia With IKZF3 Deletion and TP53 Mutation: Comparison With Pediatric Patients.

Am J Clin Pathol 2015 Aug;144(2):263-70

Department of Hematopathology, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston.

Objectives: Chromosomal ploidy is a major risk stratification tool for acute B-cell lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). Low hypodiploidy and near-haploidy are thought to be confined to pediatric B-ALL and associated with a poor prognosis. Doubling of either a low-hypodiploid or a near-haploid clone results in an apparently high-hyperdiploid karyotype, which is often misclassified for risk. Read More

Long-term effects of gestational nicotine exposure and food-restriction on gene expression in the striatum of adolescent rats.

PLoS One 2014 19;9(2):e88896. Epub 2014 Feb 19.

Medical Research Council (MRC), Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) centre, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, London, United Kingdom.

Gestational exposure to environmental toxins such as nicotine may result in detectable gene expression changes in later life. To investigate the direct toxic effects of prenatal nicotine exposure on later brain development, we have used transcriptomic analysis of striatal samples to identify gene expression differences between adolescent Lister Hooded rats exposed to nicotine in utero and controls. Using an additional group of animals matched for the reduced food intake experienced in the nicotine group, we were also able to assess the impact of imposed food-restriction on gene expression profiles.

Human snRNA genes use polyadenylation factors to promote efficient transcription termination.

Nucleic Acids Res 2014 Jan 4;42(1):264-75. Epub 2013 Oct 4.

Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3RE, UK and CGAT, MRC Functional Genomics Unit, Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PT, UK.

RNA polymerase II transcribes both protein coding and non-coding RNA genes and, in yeast, different mechanisms terminate transcription of the two gene types. Transcription termination of mRNA genes is intricately coupled to cleavage and polyadenylation, whereas transcription of small nucleolar (sno)/small nuclear (sn)RNA genes is terminated by the RNA-binding proteins Nrd1, Nab3 and Sen1. The existence of an Nrd1-like pathway in humans has not yet been demonstrated. Read More

Idiotypic analysis of monoclonal antibodies to poly(Glu60Ala30Tyr10).

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 1979 Jun;76(6):2942-6

Fifteen hybridoma anti-poly(Glu60Ala30Tyr10) (anti-GAT) antibodies were analyzed for the presence of a common set of idiotypic specificities associated with murine anti-GAT antibodies, termed CGAT idiotype, which are present on the anti-GAT antibodies of all mouse strains. Thirteen of these monoclonal anti-GAT antibodies expressed a major fraction of CGAT idiotypic specificities. However, the remaining fraction of CGAT idiotypic specificities were not detected in individual or pooled hybridoma anti-GAT antibodies. Read More
