Overlapping trisomies for human chromosome 21 orthologs produce similar effects on skull and brain morphology of Dp(16)1Yey and Ts65Dn mice.
 

Author(s): John M Starbuck, Tara Dutka, Tabetha S Ratliff, Roger H Reeves, Joan T Richtsmeier

Journal: Am. J. Med. Genet. A. 2014 Aug;164A(8):1981-90.

 

Trisomy 21 results in gene-dosage imbalance during embryogenesis and throughout life, ultimately causing multiple anomalies that contribute to the clinical manifestations of Down syndrome. Down syndrome is associated with manifestations of variable severity (e.g., heart anomalies, ...

Positive selection in the chromosome 16 VKORC1 genomic region has contributed to the variability of anticoagulant response in humans.
 

Author(s): Blandine Patillon, Pierre Luisi, Hélène Blanché, Etienne Patin, Howard M Cann, Emmanuelle Génin, Audrey Sabbagh

Journal: PLoS ONE. 2012 ;7(12):e53049.

 

VKORC1 (vitamin K epoxide reductase complex subunit 1, 16p11.2) is the main genetic determinant of human response to oral anticoagulants of antivitamin K type (AVK). This gene was recently suggested to be a putative target of positive selection in East Asian populations. In this study, ...

E-cadherin and loss of heterozygosity at chromosome 16 in breast carcinogenesis: different genetic pathways in ductal and lobular breast cancer?
 

Author(s): Anne-Marie Cleton-Jansen

Journal: Breast Cancer Res.. 2002 ;4(1):5-8.

 

Loss of heterozygosity at the long arm of chromosome 16 is one of the most frequent genetic events in breast cancer. In the search for tumour suppressor genes that are the target of loss of heterozygosity at 16q, the E-cadherin gene CDH1 was unveiled by the identification of truncating ...
