Genetic Tests

Image: The replacement of the amino acid arginine by a cysteine at position 117 in POT1p.R117C produces conformational changes in the protein that are incompatible with an efficient connection to the telomere, inducing an aberrant telomere elongation and fragile telomeres in the mutated cells (Photo courtesy of CNIO).

Mutated Gene Found in Families with Multiple Tumors

Cardiac angiosarcoma is a rare but malignant disease and in the case of hereditary CAS, the median survival expectancy is only four months because the disease is diagnosed at an advanced stage.   More...
