One way to “filter” the genes within regions of DNA copy-number gain is to identify those that are also altered at the RNA or protein level, assuming that genes whose increased dosage translates into increased expression are most likely to be involved in malignant transformation. Diagnosis, genetics, and management of inherited bone marrow failure syndromes.

The micronuclei assay is considered a practical, universally validated and technically feasible protocol which is useful to evaluate the genetic instability induced by genotoxic agents.

Table 1 lists examples in these two functional categories. Recent developments include the application of modern genomic techniques to the study of large-scale genomic losses, the identification of new tumor-suppressor genes that act through allelic insufficiency, and the discovery of noncoding genes as functionally relevant targets of recurrent genomic losses. This view has recently been challenged by the discovery of a cryptic inversion — inv 2 pp21p23 — in 6. Micronuclei and chromatid buds are the result of related genotoxic events.

Mutability of p53 hotspot codons to benzo a pyrene diol epoxide BPDE and the frequency of p53 mutations in nontumorous human lung. Micronucleus formation in peripheral-blood lymphocytes alteraciohes smokers and the influence of alcohol- and tea-drinking habits. Chromosomal imbalances can be categorized into genomic gains and genomic losses.

The deregulated expression of a structurally normal gene results in deregulated expression of a normal protein. Whether similar mechanisms are relevant to the pathogenesis of chromosomal abnormalities that are associated apteraciones sporadic cancers remains to be determined.


The position of the in vitro micronucleus test within the battery of screening for genotoxic potential determination and the regulatory guidelines. Many of these aberrations have emerged as prognostic and predictive markers in hematologic cancers and certain types of solid tumors.

Chem Res Toxicol ; Cytogenetic biomonitoring of Spanish greenhouse workers exposed to pesticides: Micronuclei in cytokinesis-blocked lymphocytes as an index of occupational exposure to alkylating cytostatic drugs. Importance of detecting numerical versus structural chromosome aberrations. The Philadelphia chromosome is the result of a reciprocal translocation, t 9;22 q Chromosomal instability in amniocytes from fetuses of mothers who smoke.

For example, Crromosomicas interference screening in combination with high-resolution DNA copy-number analysis identified the REST gene as a suppressor of epithelial-cell transformation that maps to a segment of band 4q12 that is frequently deleted in colon cancer. In acute promyelocytic leukemia, all-trans retinoic acid and arsenic trioxide reverse the transcriptional repression caused by the PML-RARA fusion alteracionds by forcing the release of transcription inhibitors from the fusion protein or stimulating degradation of PML-RARA or both.

Genomic losses include monosomies and large-scale or submicroscopical deletions. Inhibition of oxidative DNA damage, 8-OHdG, and carbonyl contents in smokers treated with antioxidants vitamin E, vitamin C, beta-carotene and red ginseng.

The classic approach to identifying a tumor-suppressor gene compares multiple tumors with a specific chromosomal deletion to determine the minimal genomic region that is lost in all cases. This fusion occurs on episomes — extrachromosomal elements that are invisible by standard cytogenetic analysis.

El recuento de MN se debe realizar sobre 1. For example, several genomic regions that are recurrently deleted in a variety of tumors contain microRNA genes. The hope is that continued improvements in genomic techniques, providing ever-increasing resolution, will lead to the identification of additional genetic changes that can be exploited to design better therapeutic strategies.


High susceptibility to lung cancer analyzed in terms of combined genotypes of PIA1 and Mu-class glutathione S-transferase genes. Effect of laboratory protocol, scoring criteria, and host factors on the frequency of micronuclei.

This mechanism was documented in a recent study that identified small deletions of band Xq Panels D and E show different chromosomal rearrangements that result in deregulated expression of a structurally normal gene. The examples described here illustrate that many of these alterations are mediated crlmosomicas genetic changes associated with chromosomal abnormalities.


There is substantial evidence that these alterations are early or even initiating events in tumorigenesis. Nat Rev Cancer ;3: Panels A through C illustrate the functional consequences of different chromosomal rearrangements that result in the formation of a chimeric fusion gene. Clastogenic effect for cigarette smoking but not areca quid chewing as measured by micronuclei in exfoliated buccal mucosal cells. A fusion protein with enhanced or aberrant transcriptional activity is present in virtually all cases of Ewing’s sarcoma, in which unique translocations — t 11;22 q Micronuclei in lymphocytes of young patients under antileukemic therapy.

Genomic Gains Most recurrent genomic gains probably contribute to tumorigenesis by enhancing the activity of specific genes in the affected chromosomal regions.

In the majority of cases, only one of the two fusion genes generated and not the reciprocal counterpart indicated by the dashed arrows contributes to cancer pathogenesis.
