Taking over the Atlas
Dear Colleagues,
The Atlas, once more, is in great danger, and I will have to proceed to a collective economic lay-off of all the team involved in the Atlas before the begining of April 2015 (a foundation having suddenly withdrawn its commitment to support the Atlas). I ask you herein if any Scientific Society (a Society of Cytogenetics, of Clinical Genetics, of Hematology, or a Cancer Society, or any other...), any University and/or Hospital, any Charity, or any database would be interested in taking over the Atlas, in whole or in part. If taking charge of the whole lot is too big, a consortium of various actors could be the solution (I am myself trying to find partners). Could you please spread the information, contact the relevant authorities, and find partners.
Survival of the Atlas will be critically dependant upon your ability to find solutions (and urgently!).
Kind regards.
Jean-Loup Huret
Donations are also welcome
If each casual visitor gives 3 Euros or Dollars, the Atlas is saved in a week !
If each professional gives 100 Euros or Dollars once a year (now), the Atlas is saved in 2 weeks !
Don't let the Atlas imminent demise
Note: we send fiscal receipts for donations equal or above 50 Euros or Dollars

ASPSCR1 (Alveolar soft part sarcoma critical region 1)


Other namesASPL (Alveolar soft part sarcoma locus)
LocusID (NCBI) 79058
Location 17q25.3
Location_base_pair Starts at 79935426 and ends at 79975282 bp from pter ( according to hg19-Feb_2009)  [Mapping]
  Probe(s) - Courtesy Mariano Rocchi, Resources for Molecular Cytogenetics


Description 1872 bp cDNA
Transcription alternative splicing of 47 bp from exon 2 in the 5' untranslated region


Description 476 amino acids; contains an UBX domain, which may be related to the ubiquitylation pathway
Expression widely expressed in the adult; low expression in fetal tissues

Implicated in

Entity Alveolar soft part sarcoma with ASPSCR1 -TFE3 fusion
Cytogenetics der(X)t(X;17)(p11;q25) is consistently involved; it implicates: 1- the formation of a hybrid gene at the breakpoint, and also, 2- gain in Xp11-pter sequences, and loss of heterozygocity in 11q25-qter, with possible implications
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' ASPSCR1-3' TFE3; the reciprocal 5' TFE3 - 3' ASPSCR1 is most often absent. ASPSCR1 is fused in frame to TFE3 exon 3 or 4
Abnormal Protein NH2 term ASPSCR1, fused to the C term of TFE3
Oncogenesis might combine the effect of a fusion protein to that of gene(s) dosage
Entity primary renal ASPSCR1-TFE3 tumour
Disease a subset of renal cell carcinoma, which presents with a combination of alveolar soft part sarcoma-like features and epithelial features is found to carry this anomaly
Cytogenetics balanced t(X;17)(p11.2;q25), in contrast with what is found in the alveolar soft part sarcoma (see above)
Hybrid/Mutated Gene 5' ASPSCR1-3' TFE3
Abnormal Protein NH2 term ASPSCR1, fused to the C term of TFE3
