Bi-allelic inactivation of the MEN1 tumor suppressor gene in human grade II astrocytoma.

Abstract

In humans and gene-targeted mice, loss of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) tumor suppressor gene function causes neuroendocrine tumors, frequently of the parathyroid and pituitary glands and the pancreas. The MEN1 gene product interacts with glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) in the brain. We here demonstrate bi-allelic MEN1 inactivation in a… (More)
