Thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF-1) was identified for its critical role in thyroid-specific gene expression; its level in the thyroid is regulated by thyrotropin-increased cyclic AMP levels. TTF-1 was subsequently found in lung tissue, where it regulates surfactant expression, and in certain neural tissues, where its function is unknown. Ligands or(More)
Immunohistochemical staining for proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and BrdU using anti-PCNA and anti-BrdU monoclonal antibodies, respectively, was performed in 16 human brain tumours, including 3 glioblastomas multiforme, 2 anaplastic astrocytomas, 1 cerebellar astrocytoma, 2 recurrent meningiomas, 4 non-recurrent meningiomas, 3 neurinomas and 1(More)
Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (yGT) has been widely used by many investigators as a useful histoenzymic marker for preneoplastic hepatocellular lesions during experimental hepatocarcinogenesis appearance of this enzyme in rodent livers exposed to hepatocarcinogens was reported as an oncofoetal property by Fiala et al. (1972). We recently demonstrated a(More)
A case of invasive ductal carcinoma of an ectopic pancreas in the stomach in a 74-year-old woman is presented. A 4.0 cm gastric submucosal tumor (SMT) was resected surgically. Histologically, the tumor showed cystic tissue consisting of an ectopic pancreas with foci of a moderately differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma. In this tumor, small pancreatic(More)
