University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC Duke University, Durham, NC University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA University of Chicago, Chicago, IL Cancer and Leukemia Group B, Chicago, IL
J Clin Oncol 26:3513. 2008..Tools are needed to discern best patient therapy. Based on mechanistic studies, we hypothesized that germline genetic variation in cellular transporters is associated with response to chemotherapy for mCRC...
- Fine mapping of a locus for nonsyndromic mental retardation on chromosome 19p13D K Nolan
Committee on Genetics, University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois 60637, USA
Am J Med Genet A 146:1414-22. 2008..However, no mutations in the coding region of this gene are present in the family we describe. These results suggest that another gene causing autosomal recessive nonsyndromic MR (ARNSMR) is located within this genomic region...
- UGT1A1*28 polymorphism as a determinant of irinotecan disposition and toxicityL Iyer
Department of Medicine, The University of Chicago, IL, USA
Pharmacogenomics J 2:43-7. 2002..The results suggest that screening for UGT1A1*28 polymorphism may identify patients with lower SN-38 glucuronidation rates and greater susceptibility to irinotecan induced gastrointestinal and bone marrow toxicity...
- Mutation analysis of the DCX gene and genotype/phenotype correlation in subcortical band heterotopiaN Matsumoto
Department of Human Genetics, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60637, USA
Eur J Hum Genet 9:5-12. 2001..Maternal germline mosaicism was found in one family. Significant differences in genotype were found in relation to band thickness and familial vs sporadic status...

Department of Pediatrics, University of California, San Francisco 94143 0724
Am J Hum Genet 56:570-6. 1995..These findings contrast with the more debilitating mutations observed in Menkes disease and suggest that low amounts of an otherwise normal protein product could result in the relatively mild phenotype of OHS and of the blotchy mouse...
