CTNNB1 gene mutations, pituitary transcription factors, and MicroRNA expression involvement in the pathogenesis of adamantinomatous craniopharyngiomas.


Genes involved in formation/development of the adenohypophysis, CTNNB1 gene, and microRNAs might be implicated in the craniopharyngioma pathogenesis. The objective of this study is to perform the molecular analysis of HESX1, PROP1, POU1F1, and CTNNB1 genes and evaluate a panel of miRNA expression in craniopharyngioma. We also verified whether the presence… (More)
