Carcinomas that develop in the pancreatic islets of transgenic mice expressing the SV40 T-antigens (Tag) under transcriptional control of the rat insulin II promoter (RIP) progress through well-characterized stages that are similar to aspects of human tumor progression, including hyperplastic growth, increased angiogenesis and reduced apoptosis. The latter(More)
PURPOSE Malignant astrocytomas (MA) are aggressive central nervous system tumors with poor prognosis. Activating mutation of BRAF (BRAF(V600E)) has been reported in a subset of these tumors, especially in children. We have investigated the incidence of BRAF(V600E) in additional pediatric patient cohorts and examined the effects of BRAF blockade in(More)
Development of model systems that recapitulate the molecular heterogeneity observed among glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) tumors will expedite the testing of targeted molecular therapeutic strategies for GBM treatment. In this study, we profiled DNA copy number and mRNA expression in 21 independent GBM tumor lines maintained as subcutaneous xenografts (GBMX),(More)
Receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) signaling plays a key role in the development of breast cancer. Defining the genes and pathways in the RTK signaling network that are important regulators of tumorigenesis in vivo will unveil potential candidates for targeted therapeutics. To this end, we used microarray comparative genomic hybridization to identify and(More)
Medulloblastoma is the most common malignant brain tumor in children, and a substantial number of patients die as a result of tumor progression. Overexpression of CDK6 is present in approximately one-third of medulloblastomas and is an independent poor prognostic marker for this disease. MicroRNA (miR)-124 inhibits expression of CDK6 and prevents(More)
Quantitative measurements of tumor genome composition show remarkable heterogeneity in tumors arising from the same anatomical location and/or histopathological class and stage. The factors that contribute to genomic heterogeneity are not clear, but germ-line allelic variation and timing of initiating oncogenic events are likely candidates. We investigated(More)
UNLABELLED Although mutational activation of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) features prominently in glioma and non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), inhibitors of EGFR improve survival only in patients with NCSLC. To understand how mutations in EGFR influence response to therapy, we generated glioma cells expressing either glioma- or(More)
Running title: Targeting BRAF V600E in Malignant Astrocytoma We declare no conflict of interest (or relationship that would be suspected of constituting conflicts) at the time of submission. Author manuscripts have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication but have not yet been edited. Malignant astrocytoma (MA) is the most common histopathologic(More)
BRAFV600E is a common finding in glioma (about 10–60% depending on histopathologic subclassification). BRAFV600E monotherapy shows modest preclinical efficacy against BRAFV600E gliomas and also induces adverse secondary skin malignancies. Here, we examine the molecular mechanism of intrinsic resistance to BRAFV600E inhibition in glioma. Furthermore, we(More)
Purpose: Malignant astrocytomas (MA) are aggressive central nervous system tumors with poor prognosis. Activating mutation of BRAF (BRAF) has been reported in a subset of these tumors, especially in children. We have investigated the incidence of BRAF in additional pediatric patient cohorts and examined the effects of BRAF blockade in preclinical models of(More)
