1) Dear colleagues,

I am a research scholar in the Dept. of Obstetrics & Gynaecology & my
project is on Angiotensinogen variants and polymorphisms
associated with hypertension. I'm seeking info on any association studies
done on angiotensinogen and the M235T /T174M variants in pregnant
hypertensives or any other polymorphisms in the angiotensinogen gene of

2) I am writing an article on Cornelia DeLange Syndrome (also called
Brachmann-deLange syndrome) for The Scientist. The angle will be "anatomy of a
gene search." I need to contact researchers doing linkage work and any other
genetic research on this condition. I am a science writer with a PhD in
genetics. Many thanks!

3) Dear Colleagues,

I am a clinician at the Department of Paediatrics, Kuala Lumpur Hospital,
Malaysia and a researcher at the Division of Molecular Pathology,
Institute for Medical Research, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I am interested to know the risk of Wilm's tumour in patients with
isolated aniridia (with normal chromosomes at 400 band resolution).  What
is/are the molecular genetic abnormality in such a condition?  Is the AN2
gene involved in most of these cases?  Would trying to look for deletions
at the WAGR locus particularly the AN2 locus and defining the extent
of deletions at molecular level (eg. by looking for loss of
heterozygosity of microsatellites) be useful?  Are there articles in this

4) This is a general enquiry to see if anyone has made,
or has access to a cDNA library constructed from individuals with
Pagets disease of bone.

Many thanks in anticipation.

We are interested in receiving cells from patients with 4q21 region
deletions, translocations, or inversions.  All our studies will, of course,
be collaborative.

This project has IRD approval.

I have seen for genetic counselling a family with Beals Syndrome,
congenital contractural arachnodactyly.
We have stored DNA from the propositus,his parents, 4 sibs of the mother,
and the maternal grandmother.
In addition to the propositus,his mother and a maternal aunt showed the
same symptoms.
I am interested in collaboration to study this family  at the moecular level.

14) We are trying to start testing for P53 mutations in our lymphoma
pateints and we are wondering if somebody can supply some positive cells
for us as a positive control.

Thank You

Dear Sir,

May I inquire on possible websites I can visit to review the most recent
consensus on the role of molecular biology in the clinical management of
brain tumors?
Thank you and I will anticipate/look forward to  your response.
