We studied the status of chromosomes 1 and 19 in 363 astrocytic and oligodendroglial tumors. Whereas the predominant pattern of copy number abnormality was a concurrent loss of the entire 1p and 19q regions (total 1p/19q loss) among oligodendroglial tumors and partial deletions of 1p and/or 19q in astrocytic tumors, a subset of apparently astrocytic tumors(More)
Astrocytic, oligodendroglial and mixed gliomas are the commonest gliomas in adults. They have distinct phenotypes and clinical courses, but as they exist as a continuous histological spectrum, differentiating them can be difficult. Co-deletions of total 1p and 19q are found in the majority of oligodendrogliomas and considered as a diagnostic marker and a(More)
The desmosomal cadherins comprise the desmocollins and desmogleins and are involved in epithelial cell-cell adhesion. There are three desmocollins (DSC 1-3) and three desmogleins (DSG 1-3) that are expressed in a tissue- and development-specific manner. Desmosomal proteins have been implicated in a number of disorders characterized by loss of cell-cell(More)
