Ewing sarcomas (ES) are highly malignant bone or soft tissue tumors. Genetically, ES are defined by balanced chromosomal EWS/ETS translocations, which give rise to chimeric proteins (EWS-ETS) that generate an oncogenic transcriptional program associated with altered epigenetic marks throughout the genome. By use of an inhibitor (JQ1) blocking BET(More)
Recessive mutations in the Drosophila tumor gene lethal (2) giant larvae affect the growth and tissue specificity of determined cells in imaginal discs and presumptive optic centers of the brain. To analyse the function of the l (2) gl gene during development, we have raised monoclonal antibodies against the l (2) gl protein. These antibodies detect a(More)
Microarray analysis revealed genes of the posterior HOXD locus normally involved in bone formation to be over-expressed in primary Ewing sarcoma (ES). The expression of posterior HOXD genes was not influenced via ES pathognomonic EWS/ETS translocations. However, knock down of the dickkopf WNT signaling pathway inhibitor 2 (DKK2) resulted in a significant(More)
