FDG PET/CT Utility in Gynecologic Malignancies: A comprehensive review of anatomy, pathways of metastatic spread and scan findings
Nicholas Plaxton, MD, Aruna Polsani, MD, Raghuveer Halkar, MD, Karen Godette, MD, Barron, Bruce, MD

Our objective was to review the five major gynaecologic cancers (cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal, and vulvar) and demonstrate the role of FDG PET/CT in diagnosis, surveillance, FIGO staging and treatment strategy.

FDG PET/CT Characteristics of Adrenal Benign and Malignant Lesions
Nicholas Plaxton, MD, Raghuveer Halkar, MD, Bruce Barron, MD

We selected FDG PET/CT cases with strong key representative findings to help illustrate benign and malignant adrenal lesions. Tabular review of PET SUV values, Hounsfield units and lesion size in the different cases will be discussed.

Hot Start dNTPs – Pushing the Limits of PCR
Tony Le, Hidalgo Ashrafi, Sabrina Shore, Victor Timoshchuk, Natasha Paul, Richard Hogrefe, Inna Koukhareva, Alexandre Lebedev

Hot Start dNTPs are a distinct approach that employs modified nucleoside triphosphates with a thermolabile protecting group. This modification blocks low temperature primer extension and is released at higher temperatures to allow for more specific DNA polymerase incorporation.

Improved Ligation Specificity with Chemically Modified Ligation Components
Sabrina Shore, Alexandre Lebedev, Elena Hidalgo Ashrafi, Gerald Zon, Natasha Paul, Richard Hogrefe

Ligases are gaining utility in molecular biology applications, such as nucleotide sequence detection, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) detection, protein detection and “next generation” sequencing by ligation.

Gene Expression from Pseudourine and 5-Methylcytidine Modified Messenger RNA
Jiehua Zhou, Maggie L. Bobbin, Julie R. Escamilla-Powers, Anton P. McCaffrey and John J. Rossi

Study objective was to develop methodologies for gram scale synthesis of messenger RNA (mRNA) for gene therapy applications, as well as scalable purification methods that yield highly expressed, persistent and non-toxic mRNA.

Random Homozygous Gene Perturbation (RHGP) as a Tool for Target Discovery and Validation
Wu-Bo Li and Michael Goldblatt

Random homozygous gene perturbation (RHGP) can identify and validate any host (cellular) gene target that directly causes a desired phenotype without requiring prior knowledge of the target. The central feature of RHGP is a unique lentiviral-based genetic element, known as a gene search vector (GSV) designed to interrogate the entire genome and identify target genes that cause the phenotype of interest.

Simultaneous RT-qPCR Measurement of 1718 Long Non-Coding RNAs
Pieter Mestdagh, Barbara D’haene, Jan Hellemans and Jo Vandesompele

Massively parallel RNA-sequencing revealed that the human genome is pervasively transcribed, resulting in the production of thousands of non-coding RNA transcripts.

Advanced Copy Number Variant Analysis with qbasePLUS 2
Barbara D’haene, Jo Vandesompele and Jan Hellemans

Copy number changes under the form of deletions and duplications are known to be involved in numerous human genetic disorders. Moreover, each individual’s genome embodies several copy number polymorphisms of various sizes which are thought to contribute to normal phenotypic variation and susceptibility to multifunctional disease.
