High-Dose PEG-Intron Pharmacokinetic Study in Patients With Melanoma (Study P04831AM2)

The purpose of this study is to establish the pharmacokinetics of PEG-Intron, administered at a dose of 6 μg/kg/week for 8 weeks (induction treatment), followed by a dose of 3 μg/kg/week...

Effect of Proactive Management of Side Effects on Treatment Compliance in Malignant Melanoma Patients on High-dose Intron A Therapy (Study P04600)

Patients with malignant melanoma who had undergone surgery will receive adjuvant treatment with high-dose Intron A for one year. The objective of this study is to maximize treatment compl...

Phase III PEG-Intron in HIV-infected Patients (Study P00738)

This is a randomized, double-blind, multicenter trial testing 2 doses of PEG-Intron, 1.0mcg/kg/week and 3.0mcg/kg/week in heavily treatment-experienced HIV-infected patients compared to pl...

Safety, Tolerability, and Anti-HIV Activity of PEG-Intron in HIV-Positive Children

The purpose of this study is to see if PEG-Intron is safe and tolerated when given to children, to see how much gets into the blood and how long it stays in the blood, and to see how well ...

Adjuvant Therapy of Pegylated Interferon- 2b Plus Melanoma Peptide Vaccine

The goal of this clinical research study is to find the best dosing schedule of a combined treatment of PEG Intron® (pegylated Interferon-alfa 2b) plus a peptide vaccine (gp100) that may ...

Intron retention is a source of neoepitopes in cancer.

We present an in silico approach to identifying neoepitopes derived from intron retention events in tumor transcriptomes. Using mass spectrometry immunopeptidome analysis, we show that retained intron...

Genome-wide identification, phylogenetic classification, and exon-intron structure characterisation of the tubulin and actin genes in flax (Linum usitatissimum).

Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) is a valuable food and fiber crop cultivated for its quality fiber and seed oil. α-, β-, γ-tubulins and actins are the main structural proteins of the cytoskeleton. α...

A highly proliferative group IIC intron from Geobacillus stearothermophilus reveals new features of group II intron mobility and splicing.

The thermostable Geobacillus stearothermophilus GsI-IIC intron is among the few bacterial group II introns found to proliferate to high copy number in its host genome. Here, we developed a bacterial g...

Identification of a variant-associated with early-onset diabetes in the intron of INS gene with exome sequencing.

Whole-exome sequencing is a new technology. We used it to explore the gene responsible for early-onset diabetes due to impaired insulin secretion in a family. In the INS gene, we identified the hetero...

Three New Pentatricopeptide Repeat Proteins Involved in Splicing of Mitochondrial transcripts and Complex I Biogenesis in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Group Ⅱ introns are common features of most angiosperm mitochondrial genomes. Intron splicing is thus essential for the expression of mitochondrial genes and is facilitated by numerous nuclear-encod...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An unpigmented malignant melanoma. It is an anaplastic melanoma consisting of cells derived from melanoblasts but not forming melanin. (Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed)

A large collection of DNA fragments cloned (CLONING, MOLECULAR) from a given organism, tissue, organ, or cell type. It may contain complete genomic sequences (GENOMIC LIBRARY) or complementary DNA sequences, the latter being formed from messenger RNA and lacking intron sequences.

A widely-expressed protein of approximately 400 to 500 amino acids. Its N-terminal region (DENN domain) interacts with RAB GTP-BINDING PROTEINS and may regulate AUTOPHAGY, as well as PROTEIN TRANSPORT to ENDOSOMES. Expansion of the GGGGCC hexanucleotide repeat in the first intron of the C9orf72 gene is associated with FRONTOTEMPORAL DEMENTIA with AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (FTDALS1).

RNA transcripts of the DNA that are in some unfinished stage of post-transcriptional processing (RNA PROCESSING, POST-TRANSCRIPTIONAL) required for function. RNA precursors may undergo several steps of RNA SPLICING during which the phosphodiester bonds at exon-intron boundaries are cleaved and the introns are excised. Consequently a new bond is formed between the ends of the exons. Resulting mature RNAs can then be used; for example, mature mRNA (RNA, MESSENGER) is used as a template for protein production.

Family of retrovirus-associated DNA sequences (ras) originally isolated from Harvey (H-ras, Ha-ras, rasH) and Kirsten (K-ras, Ki-ras, rasK) murine sarcoma viruses. Ras genes are widely conserved among animal species and sequences corresponding to both H-ras and K-ras genes have been detected in human, avian, murine, and non-vertebrate genomes. The closely related N-ras gene has been detected in human neuroblastoma and sarcoma cell lines. All genes of the family have a similar exon-intron structure and each encodes a p21 protein.
