BTG2 gene predicts poor outcome in PT-DLBCL

Introduction Primary testicular diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (PT-DLBCL) is a rare and aggressive form of mature B-cell lymphoma.1–3 PT-DLBCL was the most common type of testicular tumor in men aged over 60 and characterized by painless uni- or bilateral testicular masses with infrequent constitutional symptoms.4–6 PT-DLBCL shows significant extranodal tropism,…

The role of ATXR6 expression in modulating genome stability and transposable element repression in Arabidopsis

Significance The plant-specific H3K27me1 methyltransferases ATXR5 and ATXR6 play integral roles connecting epigenetic silencing with genomic stability. However, how H3K27me1 relates to these processes is poorly understood. In this study, we performed a comprehensive transcriptome analysis of tissue- and ploidy-specific expression in a hypomorphic atxr5/6 mutant and revealed that the…

Single-cell DNA and RNA sequencing reveals the dynamics of intra-tumor heterogeneity in a colorectal cancer model | BMC Biology

Organoid culture of small intestinal cells and lentiviral transduction C57BL/6J mice and BALB/cAnu/nu immune-deficient nude mice were purchased from CLEA Japan (Tokyo, Japan). The small intestine was harvested from wild-type male C57BL/6J mice at 3–5 weeks of age (Additional file 1: Figure S9A). Crypts were purified and dissociated into single cells,…

iCOMIC: a graphical interface-driven bioinformatics pipeline for analyzing cancer omics data

Abstract Despite the tremendous increase in omics data generated by modern sequencing technologies, their analysis can be tricky and often requires substantial expertise in bioinformatics. To address this concern, we have developed a user-friendly pipeline to analyze (cancer) genomic data that takes in raw sequencing data (FASTQ format) as input…
