Testicular germ cell tumors (GCT) are the most frequent malignancy in young adults and arise from intratubular germ cell neoplasia undetermined (IGCNU, also referred to as carcinoma in situ, CIS). To determine the transcriptional programs involved in the transition from normal germ cells to GCT, and to further elucidate genetic differences between seminomas(More)
BACKGROUND There is only limited knowledge about gene expression in human testicular germ cell tumors of adolescents and adults (TGCTs), and, in particular in its preinvasive stage intratubular germ cell neoplasia unclassified (IGCNU). MATERIALS AND METHODS Global gene expression was studied in 10 invasive human testicular germ cell tumors (TGCTs), 7(More)
Testicular germ cell tumors comprise of group of pluripotent tumors including seminomas and nonseminomas, arise from intratubular germ cell neoplasia and originate from the primordial germ cells/ gonocytes. Many well characterized markers of embryonic stem cells including CD9, PODXL and centromere-specific histone-H3-like protein CENPA are consistently(More)
