Tumours ferment glucose to lactate even in the presence of oxygen (aerobic glycolysis; Warburg effect). The pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) allows glucose conversion to ribose for nucleic acid synthesis and glucose degradation to lactate. The nonoxidative part of the PPP is controlled by transketolase enzyme reactions. We have detected upregulation of a(More)
CD146(+) bone marrow stromal cells have been recently recognized as clonogenic osteoprogenitors able to organize a complete hematopoietic microenvironment. In this study we used immunohistochemical analysis to investigate the contribution of CD146(+) bone marrow osteoprogenitors to the stromal remodeling occurring in the different stages of primary(More)
Adenomatoid tumour is a neoplastic process of discussed origin, but the immunohistochemical phenotype leads a mesothelial derivation. The preferential site of origin is the genital apparatus of both sexes, however extragenital cases have been described. The histological pattern varies from tubular formation, to solid growth, to cystic areas. In the present(More)
