Genes involved in formation/development of the adenohypophysis, CTNNB1 gene, and microRNAs might be implicated in the craniopharyngioma pathogenesis. The objective of this study is to perform the molecular analysis of HESX1, PROP1, POU1F1, and CTNNB1 genes and evaluate a panel of miRNA expression in craniopharyngioma. We also verified whether the presence(More)
OBJECTIVES Pituitary stem cells play a role in the oncogenesis of human adamantinomatous craniopharyngiomas (aCPs). We hypothesized that crosstalk between the Wnt/β-catenin and Sonic Hedgehog (SHH) pathways, both of which are important in normal pituitary development, would contribute to the pathogenesis of aCPs. DESIGN To explore the mRNA and protein(More)
