DMBT1 polymorphisms: relationship to malignant glioma tumorigenesis.

The deleted in malignant brain tumors 1 (DMBT1) gene on 10q25-26 is a candidate tumor suppressor gene in malignant gliomas, but its role is controversial, e.g., some DMBT1 homozygous deletions reflect unmasking of constitutional deletion polymorphisms by 10q loss. To clarify the role of DMBT1 in gliomagenesis, we investigated three reported deletion hot… CONTINUE READING
