However, we analyzed the data for the genes HMGA2, SERP1NB5, MYEOV, HES1, and LAMA4 using the Pfaffl method (Pfaffl 2001) because the amplication efficiencies of these genes were between 1.
Subsequent studies demonstrated rearrangement of the HMGIY locus in hamartoma of the breast (37), a pericentric inversion of chromosome 6 involving band p21 in a uterine leiomyoma (38), and a translocation leading to an intergenic fusion with the LAMA4 gene (laminin a4) in a pulmonary chondroid hamartoma (39).
LAMA4 is a member of the intramuscular extracellular matrix (ECM) protein family and plays a role in myogenesis (Okazaki et al.
