Translocation (4;14) and concomitant inv(14) in a basal cell carcinoma
Chromosome analysis of short-term cultures from a basal cell carcinoma was performed. The analyzed karyotypes showed a pseudodiploid clone characterized by a der(4)t(4;14)(p14;p11) and a concomitant inversion of the same ...
Population structure of the Chagas disease vector Triatoma infestans in an urban environment
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
Chagas disease is a vector-borne disease endemic in Latin America. Triatoma infestans, a common vector of this disease, has recently expanded its range into rapidly developing cities of Latin America. We aim to identify ...
Identification and complete sequencing of novel human transcripts through the use of mouse orthologs and testis cDNA sequences
The correct identification of all human genes, and their derived transcripts, has not yet been achieved, and it remains one of the major aims of the worldwide genomics community. Computational programs suggest the existence ...
An Innovative Field-Applicable Molecular Test to Diagnose Cutaneous Leishmania Viannia spp Infections
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Cutaneous and mucosal leishmaniasis is widely distributed in Central and South America. Leishmania of the Viannia subgenus are the most frequent species infecting humans. L. (V.) braziliensis, L. (V.) panamensis are also ...
A validated gene regulatory network and GWAS identifies early regulators of T cell-associated diseases
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2015)
Early regulators of disease may increase understanding of disease mechanisms and serve as markers for presymptomatic diagnosis and treatment. However, early regulators are difficult to identify because patients generally ...
Subtypes of Native American ancestry and leading causes of death: Mapuche ancestry-specific associations with gallbladder cancer risk in Chile
(Public Library of Science, 2017)
Latin Americans are highly heterogeneous regarding the type of Native American ancestry. Consideration of specific associations with common diseases may lead to substantial advances in unraveling of disease etiology and ...
