The Kallikrein-Related Peptidases hK2 and PSA with Emphasis on Genetic Variation, Secretion, and Sperm Motility

Sävblom, Charlotta

Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and human glandular kallikrein 2 (hK2) are secreted by the prostate into seminal plasma and through leakage into blood. This leakage increases rapidly in prostate disease, and PSA is used worldwide as a marker of prostate cancer. PSA is activated in vitro by hK2, and ...

Predisposing gene for early-onset prostate cancer, localized on chromosome 1q42.2-43.

Mellah, I; Millasseau, P; Teillac, P; Maitland, N J; Latil, A; Vogel, W; Cohen, N; Bellané-Chantelot, C; Cohen-Akenine, A

There is genetic predisposition associated with >=10% of all cancer of the prostate (CaP). By means of a genomewide search on a selection of 47 French and German families, parametric and nonparametric linkage (NPL) analysis allowed identification of a locus, on chromosome 1q42.2-43, carrying a pu...

No Evidence for XMRV in German CFS and MS Patients with Fatigue Despite the Ability of the Virus to Infect Human Blood Cells In Vitro

Hohn, Oliver; Strohschein, Kristin; Brandt, Alexander U.; Seeher, Sandra; Klein, Sandra; Kurth, Reinhard; Paul, Friedemann

Background: Xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV), a novel human retrovirus originally identified in prostate cancer tissues, has recently been associated with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), a disabling disease of unknown etiology affecting millions of people worldwide. How...

Molekulare Analyse von Tumorsuppressorgen-Kandidaten auf Chromosom 10 in Tumoren des Nervensystems

Köhler, Benjamin

Deletionen des Chromosoms 10 stellen eine häufige Veränderung in unterschiedlichen Tumoren des Nervensystems dar. Sie finden sich u.a. in der Mehrzahl der Glioblastome, aber auch in Subgruppen von atypischen und anaplastischen Meningeomen sowie Medulloblastomen. Der häufige Verlust von genetischem M...

Lack of evidence for xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus(XMRV) in German prostate cancer patients

Hohn, Oliver; Krause, Hans; Barbarotto, Pia; Niederstadt, Lars; Beimforde, Nadine; Denner, Joachim; Miller, Kurt

Background: A novel gammaretrovirus named xenotropic murine leukemia virus-related virus (XMRV) has been recently identified and found to have a prevalence of 40% in prostate tumor samples from American patients carrying a homozygous R462Q mutation in the RNaseL gene. This mutation impairs...

Infrared Spectroscopy with Multivariate Analysis Potentially Facilitates the Segregation of Different Types of Prostate Cell

Fullwood, Nigel J.; Cooper, Leanne J.; Matanhelia, Shyam S.; Tobin, Mark J.; German, Matthew J.; Hammiche, Azzedine

The prostate gland is conventionally divided into zones or regions. This morphology is of clinical significance as prostate cancer (CaP) occurs mainly in the peripheral zone (PZ). We obtained tissue sets consisting of paraffin-embedded blocks of cancer-free transition zone (TZ) and PZ and adjacent C...
