Genomic and functional characterizations of phosphodiesterase subtype 4D in human cancers (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, April 2013)

Discovery of cancer genes through interrogation of genomic dosage is one of the major approaches in cancer research. In this study, we report that phosphodiesterase subtype 4D (PDE4D) gene was homozygously deleted in 198 cases of 5,569 primary solid tumors (3.56%), with most being internal microdeletions. Unexpectedly, the microdeletions did not result in loss of
