Hereditary disorder consisting of multiple basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic keratocysts, and multiple skeletal defects, e.g., frontal and temporoparietal bossing, bifurcated and splayed ribs, kyphoscoliosis, fusion of vertebrae, and cervicothoracic spina bifida. Genetic transmission is autosomal dominant.
A malignant skin neoplasm that seldom metastasizes but has potentialities for local invasion and destruction. Clinically it is divided into types: nodular, cicatricial, morphaic, and erythematoid (pagetoid). They develop on hair-bearing skin, most commonly on sun-exposed areas. Approximately 85% are found on the head and neck area and the remaining 15% on the trunk and limbs. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1471)
Tumors or cancer of the SKIN.
A form of pigmented nevus showing intense melanocytic activity around the dermo-epidermal junction. Large numbers of spindle-shaped melanocytes proliferate downward toward the dermis and usually a large amount of pigment is present. It was first described in 1976 and the bulk of patients reported have been young females with the lesions presenting on the thighs. (From Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, 1992, p185)
A circumscribed stable malformation of the skin and occasionally of the oral mucosa, which is not due to external causes and therefore presumed to be of hereditary origin.
Usually a benign tumor, that commonly presents as a solitary blue nodule with spindled MELANOCYTES covered by smooth SKIN. Several variants have been identified, one variant being malignant. The blue color is caused by large, densely packed melanocytes deep in the DERMIS of the nevus. In CHILDREN, they usually occur on the BUTTOCKS and LUMBOSACRAL REGION and are referred to as cellular blue nevi. Malignant blue nevi are more commonly found on the SCALP.
Clinically atypical nevi (usually exceeding 5 mm in diameter and having variable pigmentation and ill defined borders) with an increased risk for development of non-familial cutaneous malignant melanoma. Biopsies show melanocytic dysplasia. Nevi are clinically and histologically identical to the precursor lesions for melanoma in the B-K mole syndrome. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A syndrome characterized by lesions occurring on the face, scalp, or neck which consist of congenital hypoplastic malformations of cutaneous structures and which over time undergo verrucous hyperplasia. Additionally it is associated with neurological symptoms and skeletal, ophthalmological, urogenital, and cardiovascular abnormalities.
A characteristic symptom complex.
A macular lesion on the side of the FACE, involving the CONJUNCTIVA and EYELIDS, as well as the adjacent facial skin, SCLERA; OCULOMOTOR MUSCLES; and PERIOSTEUM. Histological features vary from those of a MONGOLIAN SPOT to those of a BLUE NEVUS.
A benign compound nevus occurring most often in children before puberty, composed of spindle and epithelioid cells located mainly in the dermis, sometimes in association with large atypical cells and multinucleate cells, and having a close histopathological resemblance to malignant melanoma. The tumor presents as a smooth to slightly scaly, round to oval, raised, firm papule or nodule, ranging in color from pink-tan to purplish red, often with surface telangiectasia. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Ductless glands that secrete HORMONES directly into the BLOOD CIRCULATION. These hormones influence the METABOLISM and other functions of cells in the body.
Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.
Tests to determine whether or not an individual is pregnant.
2-, 3-, or 4-Pyridinecarboxylic acids. Pyridine derivatives substituted with a carboxy group at the 2-, 3-, or 4-position. The 3-carboxy derivative (NIACIN) is active as a vitamin.

Involvement of patched (PTCH) gene in Gorlin syndrome and related disorders: three family cases. (1/106)

AIM: To find genetic alterations in PTC or other genes of the Shh/PTCH pathway in tumorous and non- tumorous samples from three families and to correlate them with the varying expression of disorders in presented nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS) phenotypes. METHOD: DNA was extracted from archival paraffin-embedded tissues, tumor tissue or peripheral blood leukocytes, and the loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and single strand conformational polymorphism analysis was performed using PCR with primers for polymorphic 9q22.3 markers (D9S196, D9S287, D9S180, D9S127); PTCH exons 3, 6, 8, 13, 15, 16; and smo (smoothened) exon 1. G-banding tecnique was used for cytogenetic analysis of the peripheral blood lymphocytes. RESULTS: We found a LOH for PTCH in several cases and variability in smo in one case. In one case NBCCS could reasonably be ascribed to hemizygous PTCH inactivation, while in other two families this typical correlation between the syndrome phenotype and the observed genetic alterations could not been established. CONCLUSIONS: Further analysis of relatively sparse cases of NBCCS is needed before the symptoms of the syndrome could be convincingly explained by genetic alterations in the Shh/PTCH signalling pathway.  (+info)

The hedgehog signalling pathway in tumorigenesis and development. (2/106)

The hedgehog signalling pathway is responsible for the embryonic patterning of a range of tissues, and it is now known that dysregulation of this pathway can result in the formation of several tumour types. This cascade is regulated at the cell surface by the opposing actions of the patched and smoothened molecules which together form a receptor complex for hedgehog. The discovery that inactivation of the human patched gene is responsible for familial and sporadic forms of basal cell carcinoma firmly established a role for dysregulation of hedgehog signalling in tumorigenesis. Other key members of this pathway have also been shown to be involved in tumour formation, as have more distal downstream targets of hedgehog signalling. Since it appears that tumorigenesis results from constitutive activation of hedgehog responsive genes, the identification of novel downstream targets of hedgehog signalling in given cell types is likely to increase our understanding of the molecular processes underlying tumour formation.  (+info)

Intracranial calcifications in childhood medulloblastoma: relation to nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. (3/106)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Medulloblastoma is one of the most common posterior fossa tumors to occur in children. Our purpose was to document the frequency, location, and time of occurrence of intracranial calcifications in cranial CT studies of children with medulloblastoma. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed cranial CT studies of 56 patients diagnosed with medulloblastoma from 1983 through 1997 for the presence of intracranial calcifications. The findings were compared with 159 cranial CT studies of patients who were evaluated in the emergency department (control group). Thirty-two patients with medulloblastoma without shunts were compared with 118 patients from the control group without shunts. Similarly, 24 patients with medulloblastoma with shunts were compared with 41 patients from the control group with shunts. RESULTS: Overall, three (9%) patients with medulloblastoma without shunts, four (16%) patients with medulloblastoma with shunts, and four (10%) patients from the control group with shunts had falx calcification. Only the two children carrying the diagnoses of medulloblastoma and nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, however, had calcification of the falx cerebri shown on the cranial CT scans obtained during the peridiagnostic period. Both were diagnosed with medulloblastoma before the age of 3 years and later developed jaw cysts and multiple basal cell carcinomas in the radiation field. CONCLUSION: Previous studies have shown that falx calcification is a major component of nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. Our two cases illustrate the importance of considering the diagnosis of nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome when falx calcification is present in young patients with medulloblastoma. If the concomitant diagnosis of nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome is made, alternative types of therapy should be sought to minimize radiation therapy sequelae.  (+info)

The hedgehog pathway and basal cell carcinomas. (4/106)

Developmental pathways first elucidated by genetic studies in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, are conserved in vertebrates, and disruption of these pathways has been associated with various human congenital anomalies. Many developmental genes continue to play an important role in regulation of cell growth and differentiation after embryogenesis, and mutations in some of these genes can result in cancer. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the skin is the most common type of cancer in humans. Although most BCCs are sporadic, in rare cases, individuals have a hereditary disease, Gorlin syndrome, that predisposes to multiple skin tumors as well as a variety of birth defects. Mutations in the human homolog of a Drosophila gene, patched, underlie Gorlin syndrome. Genetic studies in Drosophila show that patched is part of the hedgehog signaling pathway, important in determining embryonic patterning and cell fate in multiple structures of the developing embryo. Human patched is mutated in sporadic as well as hereditary BCCs, and inactivation of this gene is probably a necessary if not sufficient step for tumor formation. Delineation of the biochemical pathway in which patched functions may lead to rational medical therapy for skin cancer and possibly other tumors.  (+info)

Bilateral hyperplasia of the mandibular coronoid processes associated with the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome in an Italian boy. (5/106)

In this report we present a subject affected by nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), showing also bilateral mandibular coronoid processes hyperplasia, a hitherto unreported association. Our observation of bilateral hyperplasia of the mandibular coronoid processes in a boy with NBCCS may prompt a retrospective and prospective review of other patients affected by this syndrome in order to establish if this anomaly is part of it.  (+info)

Conservative treatment of recurrent ovarian fibromas in a young patient affected by Gorlin syndrome. (6/106)

The case of recurrent bilateral ovarian fibromas occurring in a 22 year old Italian girl affected by Gorlin syndrome is reported. Ovarian fibromas occur in 75% of female patients with Gorlin syndrome and their recurrence has rarely been reported in the literature. Management is guided by the benign nature of the lesion and consists of surgical removal of the fibroma. Preservation of the normal ovarian tissue is recommended even though there is risk of recurrence of the fibroma.  (+info)

Genetic mutations in certain head and neck conditions of interest to the dentist. (7/106)

This article identifies certain syndromes of the head and neck, which a dentist may see in clinical practice, and relates these syndromes to their sites of mutation on involved genes. This paper is timely with the near completion of the Human Genome Project, the mapping of the entire human genetic material. Knowing the site of the genetic lesion is important in helping clinicians understand the genetic basis for these conditions, and may help in our future understanding of remedies and treatments.  (+info)

PATCHED and p53 gene alterations in sporadic and hereditary basal cell cancer. (8/106)

It is widely accepted that disruption of the hedgehog-patched pathway is a key event in development of basal cell cancer. In addition to patched gene alterations, p53 gene mutations are also frequent in basal cell cancer. We determined loss of heterozygosity in the patched and p53 loci as well as sequencing the p53 gene in tumors both from sporadic and hereditary cases. A total of 70 microdissected samples from tumor and adjacent skin were subjected to PCR followed by fragment analysis and DNA sequencing. We found allelic loss in the patched locus in 6/8 sporadic basal cell cancer and 17/19 hereditary tumors. All sporadic and 7/20 hereditary tumors showed p53 gene mutations. Loss of heterozygosity in the p53 locus was rare in both groups. The p53 mutations detected in hereditary tumors included rare single nucleotide deletions and unusual double-base substitutions compared to the typical ultraviolet light induced missense mutations found in sporadic tumors. Careful microdissection of individual tumors revealed genetically linked subclones with different p53 and/or patched genotype providing an insight on time sequence of genetic events. The high frequency and co-existence of genetic alterations in the patched and p53 genes suggest that both these genes are important in the development of basal cell cancer.  (+info)

Basal cell nevus syndrome is caused by changes in a tumor suppressor gene, called PTCH1, located on chromosome 9. Mutations in this gene may increase the risk of some cancers. Molecular genetic testing of PTCH1 is available on a clinical basis.. Tumor suppressor genes usually control cell growth and cell death. Every person is born with two copies of each tumor supressor gene, one inherited from his or her mother and one from his or her father. Both copies of a tumor suppressor gene must be altered, or mutated, before a person may develop cancer. With basal cell nevus syndrome, the first mutation is inherited from either the mother or the father in 70 to 80 percent of cases. In 20 to 30 percent of cases, the first mutation is not inherited and arises de novo (for the first time) in the affected person. Whether de novo or inherited, this first mutation is present in all of the cells of the body from conception and is called a germline mutation.. Whether a person who has a germline mutation will ...

Collision tumor of BCC and melanoma is an uncommon but well-described event. Several cases of clinical and dermoscopic features of melanomas colliding with BCCs have been reported in the literature. In fact, BCC is the more represented malignant tumor among collision lesions, simply because of its high prevalence in the Caucasian population. When colliding with melanoma, the nodular component of a BCC could be misdiagnosed as a nodular component of the melanoma. In our case, the patients history of multiple BCCs in the context of BCNS prompted us to look dermoscopically at all lesions of the patient. We considered the development of melanoma in our patient as circumstantial, because melanoma and Gorlin-Goltz syndrome have different molecular pathogeneses. This case underlines once more the importance of total body clinical and dermoscopic examination. In situ melanoma in collision with BCC in BCNS is an exceptional event; however, an accurate dermoscopic examination may serve to exclude ...
The nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS), or Gorlin syndrome, is a multisystem autosomal dominant disorder. The salient features of this syndrome include multiple basal cell carcinomas, palmar and/or plantar pits, odontogenic keratocysts, skeletal and developmental anomalies, and ectopic calcification. Other features include such tumors as ovarian fibromas and medulloblastomas. There is extensive interfamilial as well as intrafamilial variability with respect to the manifestation and severity of the phenotype. Alterations in the human homologue (PTCH) of the Drosophila segment polarity gene patched have been identified in NBCCS patients as well as tumors associated with this syndrome. We report several mutations in this gene in NBCCS patients and present the clinical phenotypes of the individuals in whom these mutations were identified.. ...

Normally, every cell has 2 copies of each gene: one inherited form the mother and one inherited from the father. NBCCS follows an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern, in which a mutation needs to happen in only 1 copy of the gene for a person to have the increased risk. This means that a parent with a gene mutation may pass along a copy of the normal gene or a copy of the gene with the mutation. Therefore, a child who has a parent with a mutation has a 50% chance of inheriting that mutation. A brother, sister, or parent of a person who has a mutation also has up to a 50% chance of having the same mutation. However, if the parents test negative for the mutation (meaning each persons test results found no mutation), the risk to the siblings significantly decreases but their risk may still be higher than an average risk. It is also possible that the NBCCS in an individual was caused not by an inherited mutation but, rather, by a spontaneous gene mutation (see below).. Options exist for people ...

Gorlin syndrome, also known as nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, is a condition that affects many areas of the body and increases the risk of developing various cancerous and noncancerous tumors.In people with Gorlin syndrome, the type of cancer diagnosed most often is basal cell carcinoma, which is the most common form of skin cancer. Explore symptoms, inheritance, genetics of this condition.
Cancer of the skin is the most common cancer in Caucasians and basal cell carcinomas (BCC) account for 90% of all skin cancers. The vast majority of BCC cases are sporadic, though there is a rare familial syndrome basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS, or Gorlin syndrome) that predisposes to development of BCC. In addition, there is strong epidemiological and genetic evidence that demonstrates UV exposure as a risk factor of prime importance. The development of basal cell carcinoma is associated with constitutive activation of sonic hedgehog signaling. The mutations in SMOH, PTCH1, and SHH in BCCs result in continuous activation of target genes. At a cellular level, sonic hedgehog signaling promotes cell proliferation. Mutations in TP53 are also found with high frequency (>50%) in sporadic BCC ...

Introduction/objective: Gorlin Goltz syndrome (GGS) is an autosomal dominant inherited disorder that mainly predisposes to the proliferation of tumors, such as basal cell carcinomas and jaw keratocysts. GGS is caused by the Patched gene mutation on chromosome 9. Basal cell carcinomas in patients with GGS usually present as multiple tumors, with polymorphic clinical features, a non-gender predilection, sometimes occurring in the early stages of life, and even affecting areas not exposed to sunlight. The clinical behavior may vary, and sometimes can be very aggressive, especially in the face. In order to study the behavior of basal cell carcinomas in GGS patients, a study was performed on the patients who met criteria for the disease and were treated in our hospital ...

The PATCHED (PTC) gene encodes a Sonic hedgehog (Shh) receptor and a tumor suppressor protein that is defective in basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS). Functions ofPTC were investigated by inactivating the mouse gene. Mice homozygous for the ptc mutation died during embryogenesis and were found to have open and overgrown neural tubes. Two Shh target genes, ptc itself and Gli, were derepressed in the ectoderm and mesoderm but not in the endoderm. Shh targets that are, under normal conditions, transcribed ventrally were aberrantly expressed in dorsal and lateral neural tube cells. Thus Ptc appears to be essential for repression of genes that are locally activated by Shh. Mice heterozygous for the ptc mutation were larger than normal, and a subset of them developed hindlimb defects or cerebellar medulloblastomas, abnormalities also seen in BCNS patients. ...
In 2012, two landmark phase II studies were reported in the New England Journal of Medicine investigating the use of the firstin- class, small-molecule SMO inhibitor vismodegib (GDC-0449, Genentech) for treatment of advanced BCC (both metastatic and locally advanced) and for management of patients with basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS). By targeting the HH pathway, it was hoped that these medications could lead to lesion resolution and prevent the development of new BCC lesions. Both studies met their primary endpoints in terms of anti-BCC efficacy, although the studies demonstrated a moderate toxicity profile for the medication.. Sekulic and coworkers evaluated the efficacy and safety profile of vismodegib in BCC patients who were inappropriate surgical candidates given the low likelihood of cure or potential disfigurement of surgery. Of the 104 patients enrolled in the nonrandomized study, 33 had metastatic BCC, while 71 had locallyadvanced disease. Patients received vismodegib 150 mg daily by ...

Suppressor of fused homolog is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SUFU gene. SUFU encodes a component of the sonic hedgehog (SHH) / patched (PTCH) signaling pathway. Mutations in genes encoding components of this pathway are deleterious for normal development and are associated with cancer-predisposing syndromes (e.g., holoprosencephaly, HPE3; basal cell nevus syndrome, BCNS; and Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome; GCPS). SUFU has been shown to interact with GLI1, GLI3 and PEX26.

Gorlin syndrome is a rare genetical disorder. It is caused as a result of mutation in the gene. The gene responsible for this mutation is present on the chromosome 9. The mutation changes the gene actual sequence thus making it abnormal. This results in gorlin syndrome.. The main factor that contributes to the gene mutation is climate change from cooler climates to intense hot climates. This sudden change makes the particular regions more prone to the syndrome. The races mostly affected by this syndrome are African Americans and Caucasians.. Gorlin syndrome is autosomal dominant and equally found among both men and women. Autosomal dominant means that one copy of the mutated gene is sufficient to cause the disease. The child inherits the syndrome if either parent is affected and passes the gene to the child. Symptoms of Gorlin Syndrome ...
Basal-cell nevus syndrome (BCNS) is an inherited condition marked by multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) associated with several other abnormalities. Various treatment modalities have been used to eradicate these tumors. However, recurrences and scarring limit their use. A case of BCNS in which multiple BCCs were effectively treated with surgical excision and covering of the wounds with homologous glycerol-preseved skin grafts, is described. Moreover, in order to avoid recurrences, the patient was treated with topical tazarotene 0.1% cream. The patients was effectively treated with this combination therapy and minimal scarring was noted at follow-up. Homologous skin grafts and tazarotene can be used to effectively treat BCCs associated with BCNS, with minimal post-treatment scarring.. ...
Author(s): Siddiqui, Fariha T | Abstract: Basal Cell Carcinoma Nevus Syndrome (BCCNS) is a multi-system genetic disease characterized by the development of multiple basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), macrocephaly, medulloblastomas, jaw keratocysts, and coarse facial features, amongst other symptoms. The major and minor criteria for adults with BCCNS are often extrapolated for children, however, little is known about the disease presentation of children with BCCNS. Our study focused on bringing the pediatric presentation of BCCNS to light. To the best of our knowledge, we are the first to investigate BCCNS and its medical impact on children. Using an internet accessible survey, we asked parents and guardians about the presenting symptoms of BCCNS in their children. It was found that at least 75% of children were diagnosed with BCCNS by the age of ten or earlier, which suggests that the presentation of disease starts much earlier than previously reported. Moreover, at least 19% of parents or guardians reported

OKCs are relatively common developmental odontogenic cysts and account for 10-12% of all jaw cysts (3, 5). OKCs usually occur in the second and the third decades of life. Most studies reveal a slight male predominance (1.3:1). Approximately three quarters of all OKCs occur in the body of the mandible, most commonly in the molar region and vertical ramus (3, 5). An OKC usually occurs as a single lesion. Multiple lesions are associated with the nevoid basal cell syndrome (Gorlin-Goltz syndrome) (1). In contrast with other odontogenic cysts, OKCs have a high recurrence rate, reportedly ranging from 13% to 60% (2-7). In approximately 50% of patients, the lesion is asymptomatic. In others, pain, swelling, expansion, drainage, and bone perforation are reported (2, 5).. At histopathologic examination, an OKC has a fibrous wall lined by epithelium with a thin layer of stratified squamous epithelium. This epithelium has a basal layer six to eight cells thick and a lining of flattened keratotic epithelial ...

Author(s): Strazzulla, Lauren C; Wu, Hong; Heller, Marissa; Kim, Caroline C | Abstract: Large diameter atypical pigmented lesions (LDAPL)can be challenging to diagnose accurately usingpartial biopsies because of pathologic heterogeneity,while at the same time large excisions of these lesionsconfer significant morbidity to patients. Consequently,clinicians are often challenged by the managementof these lesions. In this case, we describe an elderlypatient with a history of multiple basal cell carcinomas,prior melanomas, and a family history of melanomawho presented with an irregularly pigmented brownand dark brown patch on his upper back. This lesionwas evaluated with multiple partial incisional biopsiesfrom the most atypical appearing areas of the lesionidentified on dermoscopy, each showing mild andmoderate atypical melanocytes. However, the patchcontinued to change clinically and eventually thepatient underwent a 5mm wide local excision, whichrevealed severely atypical melanocytic proliferationwith
Cutaneous findings that appear in childhood may be the first sign of a hereditary tumor syndrome. Early detection of genodermatoses allows the patient and at-risk family members to be screened for associated malignancies. This article provides a brief description of the pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of various inherited disorders with skin involvement, along with treatment updates. Advances in molecular-based therapy have spurred development of novel treatment methods for various genodermatoses such as xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) and Gorlin-Goltz syndrome. Further studies are needed to better assess the efficacy of many of these new treatment options. ...

Dentigerous cysts, or those arising from teeth, are benign, associated with the crowns of permanent teeth, usually involving impacted, unerupted teeth. In 75 percent of all cases, they are located in the mandible, the U-shaped bone forming the lower jaw. The mandibular third molar and maxillary canine are involved most frequently. Dentigerous cysts are the second most common odontogenic cysts after those related to the roots of the teeth. They usually present in the second or third decade of life and are rarely seen in childhood. Dentigerous cysts are usually solitary with multiple cysts reported on occasion in association with syndromes such as mucopolysaccharidosis and basal cell nevus syndrome.

Keratocystic odontogenic tumors (KCOTs) are jaw lesions that can be either sporadic or associated with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, which typically occurs as multiple, aggressive lesions that can lead to large areas of bone destruction and resorption and cause major impairment and even jaw fracture. To clarify the role of fibroblasts in the aggressivness of syndromic (S-) as compared with non-syndromic (NS-) KCOTs, we assessed fibroblasts derived from 16 S- and NS-KCOTs for differences in cell proliferation, multilineage differentiation potential, alkaline phosphatase activity, and osteoclastogenic potential. S-KCOT fibroblasts had proliferative and osteoclastogenic capacity higher than those from NS-KCOTs, as evidenced by higher numbers of tartrate-resistant acid-phosphatase-positive multinuclear cells, expression of cyclooxygenase 2, and ratio of receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappa B ligand to osteoprotegerin. The osteogenic potential was higher for S- than for NS-KCOT ...

The human homologue of the Drosophila segment polarity gene patched (PTCH) has recently been identified as the tumor suppressor gene responsible for the nevoid basal cell carcinoma (BCC) syndrome (H. Hahn et al., Cell, 85: 841-851, 1996; R. L. Johnson et al., Science (Washington DC), 272: 1668-1671, 1996). In addition to multiple BCCs, patients with nevoid BCC syndrome have a predisposition for the development of primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNETs) of the central nervous system. We have analyzed 9 sporadic BCCs and 37 PNETs for mutation and expression of the PTCH gene. PTCH mutations were found in 3 BCCs (33.3%) and in 5 PNETs (14%), including 1 of 5 cerebral PNETs, 2 of 15 medulloblastomas, and 2 of 17 desmoplastic medulloblastomas. The sequence changes in six of these tumors (four PNETs, two BCCs) were mutations predicted to result in truncated proteins. Missense mutations were detected in one PNET and one BCC each. In addition, novel sequence polymorphisms were found in exon 2, intron 5, ...
摘要:This paper investigates the controllability and stabilization of Boolean control networks (BCNs) with state and input constraints by using the semi-tensor product method, and presents a number of new results. First, a kind of constrained incidence matrix is proposed for BCNs with state and input constraints. Second, based on the constrained incidence matrix, several necessary and sufficient conditions are obtained for the controllability of the system. Third, the constrained BCN is converted to an equivalent unconstrained one, based on which some necessary and sufficient conditions are presented for the stabilization of the constrained BCN with open-loop and closed-loop controls, respectively. Finally, a practical example of the apoptosis network is studied by using the new results obtained in this paper. The study of illustrative examples shows that the new results presented in this paper are very effective in the analysis and control of BCNs with state and input constraints. ...
This paper concerns heuristic algorithms used for solution of Boolean Constraint Satisfaction Problems, or CSPs [Mon74, Mac77, Fre78, Mac87]. CSPs occur particularly in areas of artificial intelligence such as vision, temporal reasoning, and truth-maintenance systems. The most common form involves binary constraints and we consider properties of binary CSPs only (we shall omit the adjective from now on). CSPs may be represented by labeled digraphs called binary constraint networks, or BCNs. Many constraint satisfaction techniques operate upon BCNs. An important property of BCNs is that of path-consistency, which is used extensively as a heuristic for solving CSPs (many classes of CSPs are NP-hard, e.g. [VilKau86]). nEvery BCN has a path-consistent reduction, and it is known that algorithms for computing it are serial O(n superscript 3) in the number of variables [Mac77, Fre78, All83, MacFre85, MohHen86].We have formulated CSPs and path-consistency computations in the framework of Tarskis ...

The pattern of cancer expression involves all three germinal layers with transmission through multiple generations. Segregation of these cancers occur in a manner consonant with an autosomal dominant mode of genetic transmission. It is hoped that recognition of the significance of this tumor pattern within families will provide an impetus for cancer surveillance, control, and laboratory research in the quest for clues to biomarkers which correlate with its cancer-prone genotype..

Basal cell - How frequently does basal cell carcinoma cause death? Almost never. I have seen this one time in 26 years of practice, and that was in a street person who had neglected the bcca on his face so long that it had grown into the brain. Otherwise the chances of this tumor causing death are tiny.
