Detailed Analysis of Focal Chromosome Arm 1q and 6p Amplifications in Urothelial Carcinoma Reveals Complex Genomic Events on 1q, and SOX4 as a Possible Auxiliary Target on 6p.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Urothelial carcinoma shows frequent amplifications at 6p22 and 1q21-24. The main target gene at 6p22 is believed to be E2F3, frequently co-amplified with CDKAL1 and SOX4. There are however reports on 6p22 amplifications that do not include E2F3. Previous analyses have identified frequent aberrations occurring at 1q21-24. However, due to complex rearrangements it has been difficult to identify specific 1q21-24 target regions and genes.
