The role of H3.3K27M-induced gene repression in brainstem gliomagenesis
Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a highly aggressive pediatric brainstem tumor recently found to contain high incidence of H3.3K27M mutations. These mutations reprogram the H3K27me3 epigenetic landscape of DIPG ...
Genetics and Biomarkers of Osteoarthritis and Joint Hypermobility
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder causing chronic disability in the world population. By the year 2030, an estimated one fifth of this population will be affected by OA. Although OA is regarded ...
Genetic Dissection of the Biological and Molecular Role of IDH1 Mutations in Glioma
Gliomas are tumors of the central nervous system for which improvements in treatment are critically needed. Mutations in IDH1 and IDH2, which encode the cytosolic and mitochondrial NADP+-dependent isocitrate dehydrogenases, ...
Molecular Characterization of Genetic and Epigenetic Alterations in Gliomas
Glioma development and progression are driven by complex genetic alterations, including point mutations and gain or loss of genomic copy number, as well as epigenetic aberrations, including DNA methylation and histone ...
