Expression of pituitary tumour transforming gene (PTTG) and fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) in human pituitary adenomas: relationships to clinical tumour behaviour.


OBJECTIVE Pituitary tumour transforming gene (PTTG) encodes a multifunctional protein that is implicated in initiating and perpetuating pituitary adenoma growth. PTTG appears to have key regulatory functions in determining control of many fundamental cellular events including mitosis, cell transformation, DNA repair and gene regulation. Several of these… (More)
