Medulloblastoma (MB) is the most common malignant pediatric brain tumor. While the pathways that are deregulated in MB remain to be fully characterized, amplification and/or overexpression of the MYCN gene, which is has a critical role in cerebellar development as a regulator of neural progenitor cell fate, has been identified in several MB subgroups.(More)
Cell division is a process by which a mother cell divides into genetically identical sister cells, although sister cells often display considerable diversity. In this report, over 350 sister embryonic stem cells (ESCs) were isolated through a microdissection method, and then expression levels of 48 key genes were examined for each sister cell. Our system(More)
Symmetric cell divisions give rise to two sister cells that are identical to each other, whereas asymmetric divisions produce two sister cells with distinctive phenotypes. Although cell division symmetry is usually determined on the basis of a few markers or biological functions, the overall similarity between sister cells has not been thoroughly examined(More)
