The therascreen PITX2 assay provides physicians and their patients a novel, independent criterion to augment clinical information used in selection of the most suitable therapy to treat certain high-risk breast cancer.
This reliable, clinically validated assay determines the PITX2 DNA methylation ratio to differentiate between patients who are more likely or less likely to show beneficial response to anthracyclines, said Thierry Bernard, Senior Vice President, Molecular Diagnostics Business Area, for QIAGEN.
Kai te Kaat, Head of QIAGEN's Oncology Franchise, said, 'We are pleased to partner with Therawis, which developed the PITX2
assay and achieved initial clinical validation.

iii) Rieger type I syndrome caused by mutations involving PITX2
or FOXC1 genes.

Many ASD abnormalities are comparable to those seen in humans with Axenfeld-Reiger syndrome, which has been linked to mutations in the gene encoding the transcription factor, PITX2
(paired-like homeodomain transcription factor 2).
4] Human genes: CFH, complement factor H; LOXL1, lysyl oxidase-like 1; TCF7L2, transcription factor 7-like 2 (T-cell specific, HMG-box); INSIG2, insulin-induced gene 2; FTO, fat mass and obesity associated; HMGA2, high-mobility group AT-hook 2; GDFS, growth differentiation factor 5; UQCC, ubiquinol-cytochrome c reductase complex chaperone, CBP3 homolog (yeast); CDKN2A, cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A (melanoma, p 16, inhibits CDK4); CDKN28, cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2B (p15, inhibits CDK4); PITX2

Interplay between PITX2
and FOXC1 explains phenotypic variability and genetic heterogeneity of anterior segment dysgenesis.
To date, RS has been associated with the genes PITX2
on chromosome 4825 [Semina et al.
Missense mutations in R31 have been found in the human homeobox genes PITX2
, MSXI, MSX2, LMX1B, and HOXD13 and are associated with 5 different developmental diseases: iridogoniodysgenesis syndrome, tooth agenesis, enlarged parietal foramina, nail-patella syndrome, and several digital anomalies, respectively (18, 19).
5) ARS is a genetically heterogeneous group of abnormalities as a result of mutations in at least four different genetic loci, mutations in PITX2
on ch4q25, FOXC1 on 6p25, PAX6 on 11p13 and FOXO1A on 13q14 have been associated with ARS.
