Loss of Chromosome 8p Governs Tumor Progression and Drug Response by Altering Lipid Metabolism.
 

Author(s): Yanyan Cai, Jonathan Crowther, Tibor Pastor, Layka Abbasi Asbagh, Maria Francesca Baietti, Magdalena De Troyer, Iria Vazquez, Ali Talebi, Fabrizio Renzi, Jonas Dehairs, Johannes V Swinnen, Anna A Sablina

Journal: Cancer Cell. 2016 05;29(5):751-66.

 

Large-scale heterozygous deletions are a hallmark of cancer genomes. The concomitant loss of multiple genes creates vulnerabilities that are impossible to reveal through the study of individual genes. To delineate the functional outcome of chromosome 8p loss of heterozygosity (LOH), ...

Coordinated Tumor Suppression by Chromosome 8p.
 

Author(s): Darjus F Tschaharganeh, Benedikt Bosbach, Scott W Lowe

Journal: Cancer Cell. 2016 05;29(5):617-9.

 

In this issue of Cancer Cell, Cai et al. use genome editing to study 8p deletions in a mammary epithelial cell model and show that 8p loss of heterozygosity (LOH) attenuates the action of several genes that collectively promote cell invasion and enhance cellular sensitivity to autophagy ...

Copy number variation of the beta defensin gene cluster on chromosome 8p influences the bacterial microbiota within the nasopharynx of otitis-prone children.
 

Author(s): Eric A Jones, Anchasa Kananurak, Charles L Bevins, Edward J Hollox, Lauren O Bakaletz

Journal:

 

As there is increasing evidence that aberrant defensin expression is related to susceptibility for infectious disease and inflammatory disorders, we sought to determine if copy number of the beta-defensin gene cluster located on chromosome 8p23.1 (DEFB107, 106, 105, 104, 103, DEFB4 ...
