While a typo in a letter or email is a problem it's not a big one, usually. But when that typo is in genetic code, it's a very different matter. Mayo researchers in the lab of L. James Maher, III, Ph.D. , a Mayo Clinic biochemist, and their collaborators, are examining a genetic typo that can lead to tumors in specialized nerve cells, or paragangliomas, and in the cells of the gastrointestinal tract, or gastrointestinal stromal tumors. This typo can run in families, causing an inherited cancer risk.
Tumors related to the typo can be cancerous or benign, and they are generally diagnosed in...
