Validation of a Genetic Signature to Predict the Development of Sarcomas

The aim of the SARI study was to describe biomarkers of predisposition to the development of sarcomas in irradiated territory. This study included 120 patients with sarcoma in irradiated t...

Familial Investigations of Childhood Cancer Predisposition

While it is well recognized that hereditary factors contribute to the development of a subset of human cancers, the cause for many cancers remains unknown. The application of next generati...

A Pharmacogenetic Investigation of Antipsychotics in Schizophrenia and Schizophrenia-Like Psychoses

An individual's genetic make-up is known to determine their response to antipsychotic medication. Genetic markers that determine efficacy and side effects of medication may be identified a...

Genetic factors associated with the predisposition to late onset Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive, irreversible neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of memory and cognitive skills. More than 90% of cases are sporadic and have later age of onset. Man...

Clinical and genetic associations of renal function and diabetic kidney disease in the United Arab Emirates: a cross-sectional study.

Within the Emirati population, risk factors and genetic predisposition to diabetic kidney disease (DKD) have not yet been investigated. The aim of this research was to determine potential clinical, la...

Germline genetic landscape of pediatric central nervous system (CNS) tumors.

Central nervous system (CNS) tumors are the second most common type of cancer among children. Depending on histopathology, anatomic location, and genomic factors specific subgroups of brain tumors hav...

Genetic susceptibility to Tuberculosis: Interaction between HLA-DQA1 and age of onset.

Several genome-wide association studies (GWAS) identified new single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with susceptibility to Tuberculosis (TB). However, many of them were not replicated across ethnic g...

Whole Exome Sequencing Reveals the Major Genetic Contributors to Non-Syndromic Tetralogy of Fallot.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Production of new arrangements of DNA by various mechanisms such as assortment and segregation, CROSSING OVER; GENE CONVERSION; GENETIC TRANSFORMATION; GENETIC CONJUGATION; GENETIC TRANSDUCTION; or mixed infection of viruses.

The discipline studying genetic composition of populations and effects of factors such as GENETIC SELECTION, population size, MUTATION, migration, and GENETIC DRIFT on the frequencies of various GENOTYPES and PHENOTYPES using a variety of GENETIC TECHNIQUES.

Macromolecular molds for the synthesis of complementary macromolecules, as in DNA REPLICATION; GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of DNA to RNA, and GENETIC TRANSLATION of RNA into POLYPEPTIDES.

Naturally occurring genetic variations associated with drug response (e.g., dosage, extent and rate of metabolic processes). While these variants are not markers for GENETIC PREDISPOSITION TO DISEASE they influence PHARMACOKINETICS and pharmacodynamics and often occur on genes encoding drug metabolism enzymes and transporters (e.g., ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME; CYTOCHROME P-450 CYP2D6).

The use of the GENETIC VARIATION of known functions or phenotypes to correlate the causal effects of those functions or phenotypes with a disease outcome.
