Chromosomal translocations and genome rearrangements in cancer by Janet D Rowley( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collates world experts? insights into the molecular biology of cancer chromosomes, their abnormalities and the subsequent cellular consequences. Exploring themes involving oncogenes, such as by chromosomal translocations, other genome rearrangements and somatic mutations, this book is a review of the field of cancer genetics that presages a new era, as whole genome sequencing becomes more accessible. The work begins with a look at historical themes, such as the analysis of metaphase chromosomes using microscopy and staining techniques, advances in which provided our first broad glimpse into the genetic anatomy of a malignant cell. Readers will learn about the application of DNA molecular cloning techniques in the 1980s, that led to the identification of the genes involved in the Philadelphia and Burkitt's lymphoma chromosomal translocations, solidifying the role of oncogenes and tumour suppressor genes in cancer aetiology via chromosomal alterations, and which launched a field in cancer genetics. Subsequent chapters bring the reader up to date by reviewing recent developments in the field, with dedicated sections on leukaemia/lymphoma, sarcomas and epithelial tumours. Contributions feature numerous colour tables and illustrations and this volume will provide a basis for understanding cancer chromosomes for many years to come

Conversations in genetics : talking with Janet Rowley( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recorded on May 6, 2004, at the Cummings Life Sciences Center at The University of Chacago, Chicago, IL., Alfred Knudson, Senior Member, Division of Population Science, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, PA., talks to Janet D. Rowley, Blum-Riese Professor of Medicine and Human Genetics, The university of Chicago. Rowley has been an international leader in cancer research for more than thirty years, beginning with her critical discovery that cancer can be caused by a specific reciprocal translocation chromosomal rearrangement. She and others subsequently found a multitude of other specific translocations that underlie many sarcomas, leukemias and lymphomas, and showed that their common mechanism is activation or creation of an oncogene that stimulates cell proliferation or interferes with programmed cell death. Her work continues to illuminate cancer research and to bring her many honours, including the National Medal of Science, the Lasker Award, the Gairdner Foundation Award, and the Benjamin Franklin Medal
