PURPOSE: This research study is studying biomarker changes in samples from young patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
- Map key histone modifications and cytosine methylation in leukemia cell lines with defined oncogenic mutations.
- Acquire genome-wide maps of key histone modifications and cytosine methylation for primary leukemia in samples from patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
- Investigate functional relationships between genetic and epigenetic landscapes in AML.
OUTLINE: Archived samples are analyzed in vivo and in vitro (cell line) for histone modification and cytosine methylation. Genome-wide locations of 5 histone modifications are analyzed using chip-Seq, as well as DNA methylation analysis at nucleotide-resolution by high-throughput bisulfite sequencing. These epigenetic data are correlated with genomic data (sequence analysis, expression array, SNP array).

Due to the high mortality of lung cancer, early diagnosis followed by early effective treatment is the key to prognosis improvement, which demands to identify the biological targets. Therefore, a mult...
Loss of tumor suppressor gene p16 expression via promoter methylation has been reported in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the correlation between p16 meth...
DNA methylation is a crucial regulatory mechanism of gene expression, affected in many human pathologies. Therefore, it is not surprising that nowadays, in the era of high-throughput methods, a lot of...
DNA methylation was the first epigenetic modification to be detected in human cancers with specific relation to aberrant gene expression. Herein, DNA methylation analysis explains how epigenetic patte...
DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification, which contributes to the regulation of gene expression and chromatin organization, and thus plays a role in many aspects of plant life. Here we present t...
The simultaneous analysis, on a microchip, of multiple samples or targets arranged in an array format.
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques used in the diagnosis of disease. Included are such techniques as IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION of chromosomes for CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS; OLIGONUCLEOTIDE ARRAY SEQUENCE ANALYSIS of gene expression patterns in disease states; identification of pathogenic organisms by analysis of species specific DNA sequences; and detection of mutations with POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION.
A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
The detection of RESTRICTION FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISMS by selective PCR amplification of restriction fragments derived from genomic DNA followed by electrophoretic analysis of the amplified restriction fragments.

DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
