Deletions in the distal region of the short arm of chromosome 1 (1p36) are widely diffuse, both as somatic abnormalities in tumors and as constitutive in the congenital 1p36 deletion syndrome. The deletion size varies from 1.5 to 10 Mb, with common breakpoints located from 1p36.13 to 1p36.33. Patients bearing constitutional deletion of a smaller region,(More)
The definition of the number and nature of the signal transduction pathways involved in the pathogenesis and the identification of the molecules promoting metastasis spread might improve the knowledge of the natural history of osteosarcoma, also allowing refine the prognosis and opening the way to novel therapeutic strategies.

Deletions in the distal region of the short arm of chromosome 1 (1p36) are widely diffuse, both in congenital 1p36 Deletion Syndrome and as somatic abnormalities in tumours. Rearrangements in 1p36 have been described in a broad spectrum of human neoplasias in addition to other chromosomal abnormalities. In neuroblastomas, wide hemizygous deletions in(More)
