Disease relevance of ACTBP2


High impact information on ACTBP2

  • Tetranucleotide repeat polymorphism at the human beta-actin related pseudogene H-beta-Ac-psi-2 (ACTBP2) [2].
  • We tested five tetranucleotide microsatellite markers (UT5085, L17686, D9S753, ACTBP2, and CSF1R) in the tumor specimens and paired surgical margins of the patients whose margins were negative on pathological examination [3].
  • Fifty ACTBP2 amplification products previously typed on a denaturing gel were repeatedly examined to determine the utility of SSCP analysis in terms of ease of interpretation and reproduction capabilities of the conformational patterns [4].
  • Polymorphic markers (ACTBP2, UT762 and AR) were chosen for their reported high rate of alterations in SCLC and analyzed in tumor tissue, normal blood cells and plasma DNA [5].
  • Precise differentiation between maternal and fetal nucleated erythrocytes was achieved via PCR by using primers flanking highly polymorphic nucleotide repeats (DIS53, ACTBP2 and D21S11) and with a XY-specific primer pair (amelogenin) [6].

Biological context of ACTBP2


Anatomical context of ACTBP2


Associations of ACTBP2 with chemical compounds

  • After electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gels, 6 alleles could be identified for HumTHOI, 7 alleles for VWA and 26 alleles for ACTBP2 [13].

Other interactions of ACTBP2

  • ACTBP2 (alias ACTBP8) is localized on chromosome 6 (band 6q14) [8].
  • Spanish population data on seven loci: D1S80, D17S5, HUMTH01, HUMVWA, ACTBP2, D21S11 and HLA-DQA1 [14].
  • The 16 short tandem repeat systems D3S1358, VWA, FGA, TH01, TPOX, CSF1PO, D5S818, D13S317, D7S820, ACTBP2, D2S1338, D16S539, D19S433, D21S11, D18S51 and D8S1179 were amplified in a population sample composed of 333 immigrants from Afghanistan [15].
  • The minimum required amounts of this degraded DNA, for detecting alleles at five microsatellite loci (ACTBP2, CMAG, HUMTH01, CYP19, and LPL) and one minisatellite locus (MCT118) were investigated respectively [16].
  • A ladder of 24 ACTBP2 (SE33) alleles was separated 175 times by denaturing capillary electrophoresis on an ABI Prism 310 Genetic Analyzer using polymer POP-4 [17].
