    • Alcohol Consumption and Prostate Cancer Incidence and Progression: A Mendelian Randomization Study 

      Brunner, Clair; Davies, Neil M.; Martin, Richard M.; Eeles, Rosalind; Easton, Doug; Kote-Jarai, Zsofia; Amin Al Olama, Ali et al. (Wiley, 2016-09-19)
      Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in developed countries, and is a target for risk reduction strategies. The effects of alcohol consumption on prostate cancer incidence and survival remain unclear, potentially ...
    • Assessing the role of insulin-like growth factors and binding proteins in prostate cancer using Mendelian randomization: genetic variants as instruments for circulating levels 

      Bonilla, Carolina; Lewis, Sarah J.; Rowlands, Mari-Anne; Gaunt, Tom R.; Smith, George Davey; Gunnell, David; Palmer, Tom et al. (Wiley, 2016)
      Circulating insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and their binding proteins (IGFBPs) are associated with prostate cancer. Using genetic variants as instruments for IGF peptides, we investigated whether these associations are ...
    • Blood lipids and prostate cancer: a Mendelian randomization analysis 

      Bull, Caroline J.; Bonilla, Carolina; Holly, Jeff M. P.; Perks, Claire M.; Davies, Neil; Haycock, Philip; Yu, Oriana Hoi Yun et al. (Wiley, 2016-03-19)
      Genetic risk scores were used as unconfounded instruments for specific lipid traits (Mendelian randomization) to assess whether circulating lipids causally influence prostate cancer risk. Data from 22,249 prostate cancer ...
    • Investigating the possible causal role of coffee consumption with prostate cancer risk and progression using Mendelian randomization analysis 

      Taylor, Amy E.; Martin, Richard M.; Geybels, Milan S.; Stanford, Janet L.; Shui, Irene; Eeles, Rosalind; Easton, Doug et al. (Wiley, 2016-10-26)
      Coffee consumption has been shown in some studies to be associated with lower risk of prostate cancer. However, it is unclear if this association is causal or due to confounding or reverse causality. We conducted a Mendelian ...
    • PALB2, CHEK2 and ATM rare variants and cancer risk: data from COGS 

      Southey, Melissa C.; Goldgar, David; Winqvist, Robert; Pylkäs, Katri; Couch, Fergus; Tischkowitz, Marc; Foulkes, William et al. (BMJ Publishing Group, 2016-09-05)
      Background The rarity of mutations in PALB2, CHEK2 and ATM make it difficult to estimate precisely associated cancer risks. Population-based family studies have provided evidence that at least some of these mutations are ...
    • Pubertal development and prostate cancer risk: Mendelian randomization study in a population-based cohort 

      Bonilla, Carolina; Lewis, Sarah J.; Martin, Richard M.; Donovan, Jenny L.; Hamdy, Freddie C.; Neal, David E.; Eeles, Rosalind et al. (BioMed Central, 2016-04-04)
      Background: Epidemiological studies have observed a positive association between an earlier age at sexual development and prostate cancer, but markers of sexual maturation in boys are imprecise and observational estimates ...
    • Sequence similarity between stereocilin and otoancorin points to a unified mechanism for mechanotransduction in the mammalian inner ear 

      Jovine, Luca; Park, Jong; Wassarman, Paul M. (2002-11-25)
      Abstract Background Interaction between hair cells and acellular gels of the mammalian inner ear, the tectorial and otoconial membranes, is crucial for mechanoreception. Recently, otoancorin was suggested to be a mediator ...
    • Visualisation and graph-theoretic analysis of a large-scale protein structural interactome 

      Bolser, Dan M.; Dafas, Panos; Harrington, Richard; Park, Jong; Schroeder, Michael (2003-10-08)
      Abstract Background Large-scale protein interaction maps provide a new, global perspective with which to analyse protein function. PSIMAP, the Protein Structural Interactome Map, is a database of all the structurally ...
