Embryonic retinal tumors in SV40 T-Ag transgenic mice contain CD133+ tumor-initiating cells.


PURPOSE Human retinoblastomas form during the proliferative phase of retina development and are caused by mutations that result in absent or functionally defective Rb protein. Similar tumors occur in mice only when multiple Rb gene family members are absent. We asked if retinal tumors can arise from an undifferentiated retinal cell. The tumor-initiating… (More)
