Strand-Specific Analysis Shows Protein Binding at Replication Forks and PCNA Unloading from Lagging Strands when Forks Stall

By Center for Individualized Medicine Center for Individualized Medicine

Zhiguo Zhang, Ph.D. and colleagues from the Center for Individualized Medicine, offer a new tool for genomic research, through a new method revealing genome-wide association of proteins with leading and lagging strands of DNA replication forks. This will provide a tool for studying the general replication-related processes and a specific mechanism that makes this possible. […]

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

By Center for Individualized Medicine Center for Individualized Medicine

    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 […]
