  • Recent advances in genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analyses have revealed previously unrecognized microdeletions and uniparental disomy (UPD) in a broad spectrum of human cancers.

  • The frequencies of different subtypes in PWS are usually given in literature as 70 maternal uniparental disomy (mUPD) and 3-5% others (imprinting centre (IC) defects and translocations).

  • In contrast, PDP-FISH has been reported for three CNV loci using fosmid probes, which distinguish signal presence and absence rather than signal intensity differences pod-FISH has already been successfully used to identify the parental origin of individual derivative chromosomes, such as the characterization of chimerism and uniparental disomy 15

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Uniparental disomy 7 was excluded for both cell lines and the result was confirmed by microsatellite analysis.

  • Recent advances in genome-wide single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) analyses have revealed previously unrecognized microdeletions and uniparental disomy (UPD) in a broad spectrum of human cancers.

  • The combined measurement of both allelic ratios and normalized intensities provides enhanced detectability of aberrations and allows identification of copy-neutral genetic anomalies, such as uniparental disomy and mitotic recombination.
