This month we wanted to highlight four publications from a few of our valued customers. Congrats to all!
- Zuemei Ji and Christopher Amos of Dartmouth University published The Role of Haplotype in 15q25.1 Locus in Lung Cancer Risk: Results of Scanning chromosome 15 in the Oxford Journals which analyzed lung cancer patients and a control study to determine that rs588765-rs16969968 may be a genetic marker to lung cancer risk.
- In the Expert Review of Hematology, Maria Skerenova and Jan Stasko of Comenius University, along with colleagues, published Genetic variations of the GP6 regulatory region in patients with sticky platelet syndrome and miscarriage. The study used light transmission aggregometry to establish platelet hyperaggregability and found a higher occurrence of 3 SNPs in patients with platelet hyperaggregability and a history of miscarriage.
- Systems Genetics Reveals the Functional Context of PCOS Loci and Identifies Genetic and Molecular Mechanisms of Disease Heterogeneity was published in PLOS Genetics by Michelle Jones and Mark Goodarzi of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and colleagues which measured DNA methylation and gene expression in subcutaneous adipose tissue biopsies to identify PCOS-specific alterations.
- Dianke Yu, Baitang Ning, and Jingsheng Tuo of the FDA and colleagues published Functional single nucleotide polymorphism in IL−17A 3′ untranslated region is targeted by miR-4480 in vitro and may be associated with age-related macular degeneration in Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis which searched for the possible association of SNPs in the 3′UTR region of IL-17A, a gene implicated in AMD pathogenesis.
