Studying leukemia in Down syndrome patients may help scientists understand and treat other forms of cancer, says Orkin. Previous studies have shown that other genes on chromosome 21 may be involved in other types of leukemia can. ‘Learn more about the genetics of leukemia is then some thoughts about other ways that lead to interfere with the growth of the cells,’Orkin says.
The gene regulator, miR – 125b-2, belongs to a class of molecules known as microRNAs, which silence gene expression by halting the production of various proteins. While microRNAs important are the normal cellular function, s of them can lead to disease. DS – AMKL has a very strong genetic basis, says research director Stuart Orkin, Division of Hematology / Oncology at Children’s Hospital. However, there are not so many cancers, in which a particular microRNA can be pointed out to contribute. .The program, probably be implemented by this fall, retail prices for making the 150 most commonly prescribed medications list in pharmacy around the state.
