Different adipogenic genes, such as PPARG, CEBPA, FABP4, and SCD, showed lower expression levels in the presence of capsaicin compared with the control (without capsaicin) (p < 0.
Adipocyte differentiation decreased the expression levels of FABP4 and CEBPA in these cells (Lee et al.
2%) and positive in 12 (50%); and CEBPA, performed in three patients (12.
8%) underwent additional analysis for mutations in NPM1, CEBPA, FLT3, or C-KIT.
With WGA samples, all genes were again sequenced successfully, apart from CEBPA.
Although sequencing with the GS Junior System allows massively parallel clonal amplification of most PCR products, 454 GS Junior Titanium chemistry amplifies CEBPA inefficiently, most likely because of its high GC content (74.
In addition to the consortium results, the MLL Munich Leukemia Laboratory presented novel sequencing data on various disease types including the role of TP53 and CEBPA
mutations in AML, or SF3B1 and NOTCH1 mutations in CLL.
Mutation of CEBPA
in familial acute myeloid leukemia.
Family members of an AML patient who carries an inherited CEBPA
mutation can be tested for the presence of this mutation with BloodCenter's new DNA-based test.
In contrast, class II mutations (ie, CEBPA
, NPM1 , and the recurrent chromosomal translocations/ inversions described above) lead to impaired myeloid differentiation by affecting genes involved in transcriptional regulation.
More than three-quarters of the patients experienced a complete remission after chemotherapy, and the NPM1 and CEBPA
genes were most associated with success.
17) In AML with CEBPA
mutations, miRNAs 181a, 335, and 124 are upregulated, (15,18) and Hackanson et al (19) have shown epigenetic silencing of miRNA 124 in leukemic cell lines.
