Immunohistochemical detection of intranuclear p53 gene product may indicate mutation of the p53 suppressor gene on chromosome 17p. We used six commercially available antibodies for p53 immunohistochemistry on 19 archival colorectal neoplasms and compared the results with the mutation status of the p53 gene and 17p allelic deletion status. By Friedman's ranking analysis, use of mouse monoclonal antibody DO7 with Target Unmasking Fluid (TUF) for antigen retrieval was the most sensitive and specific procedure (P < 0.0001). Six of 7 cases with high expression (p53 Labeling Index > 30 per cent using a CAS 200 image analyser) had p53 mutation. Of seven tumours without expression (LI < 1 per cent), six had no mutation and one had a truncating mutation which prohibited nuclear localization of gene product. The low expression group (1 per cent < LI < 30 per cent, n = 5) consisted of three tumours without and two tumours with mutation. The sensitivity of high expression with the DO7-TUF method for p53 gene mutation was 67 per cent with specificity of 90 per cent, predictive value of a positive of 86 per cent, predictive value of a negative of 75 per cent, and efficiency of 79 per cent. This study suggests that immunohistochemistry is val...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
