Retinoic acid induces polarizing activity but is unlikely to be a morphogen in the chick limb bud
RETINOIC acid is a putative morphogen in limb formation in the chick and other vertebrates1-5. In chick limb formation, it is thought that retinoic acid is released from the zone of polarizingExpand

Cytoplasmic, but not nuclear, p16 expression may signal poor prognosis in high-grade astrocytomas
SummaryBackgroundThe negative consequences of the cytoplasmic localization of p16 in patients with high-grade astrocytomas, on their prognosis, was investigated.Methodsp16 Expression was examined inExpand

Magnetic resonance spectroscopic detection of lactate is predictive of a poor prognosis in patients with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma.
Diffuse brainstem glioma has a poor prognosis, and there are few long-term survivors. We looked for clinical, conventional magnetic resonance (MR), and MR spectroscopic (MRS) findings predictive ofExpand

11C-Methionine Uptake Correlates with Combined 1p and 19q Loss of Heterozygosity in Oligodendroglial Tumors
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Oligodendroglial tumors with 1p/19q LOH are known to show longer patient survival than those without 1p/19q LOH, but the reason for this clinical difference has not beenExpand

Survivin subcellular localization in high-grade astrocytomas: simultaneous expression in both nucleus and cytoplasm is negative prognostic marker
ObjectiveSubcellularly localized (nuclear and/or cytoplasmic) survivin has various functions, and correlates with prognosis of malignant tumors. However, there have been no reports about theExpand
