Findings Reveal Relationship with TP63 & p63 Protein Expression in Lung Adenocarcinoma

By Center for Individualized Medicine Center for Individualized Medicine (@samuelsmith5209)

    Using next-generation sequencing analysis of mate-pair DNA libraries, a group of researchers from the Center for Individualized Medicine recently identified novel chromosomal rearrangements involving TP63 in approximately 6% in peripheral T-cell lymphomas and demonstrated that these were associated with a poorer overall survival than lymphomas without these rearrangements. These rearrangements also were found in occasional B-cell […]
