Diffuse astrocytoma of World Health Organization (WHO) grade II has an inherent tendency to spontaneously progress to anaplastic astrocytoma (WHO grade III) and/or glioblastoma (WHO grade IV). The molecular basis of astrocytoma progression is still poorly understood, in particular with respect to the progression-associated changes at the mRNA level.(More)
Allelic losses on 19q are found in the majority of oligodendroglial tumors and approximately one-third of diffuse astrocytomas. However, the tumor suppressor genes (TSG) on 19q are still elusive. Using cDNA microarray expression profiling, EMP3 at 19q13.3 was among those genes showing the most pronounced expression differences. In line with this, other(More)
To identify novel genes involved in glioma progression we performed suppression subtractive hybridization combined with cDNA array analysis on 4 patients with primary low-grade gliomas of World Health Organization (WHO) grade II that recurred as secondary glioblastomas (WHO grade IV). Eight genes showing differential expression between primary and recurrent(More)
