Amplification of CDK4 and MDM2 in malignant melanoma.


Amplification of the 12q13-15 region is a common event in several human tumors including liposarcomas, gliomas, and osteosarcomas. We have demonstrated high-level amplification of 12q14 in a subset of uncultured malignant melanomas (3 of 53). High-resolution mapping of the amplicon using quantitative PCR revealed a bipartite amplicon consisting of a primary… (More)
