Homozygous deletions of the CDKN2C/p18INK4C gene on the short arm of chromosome 1 in anaplastic oligodendrogliomas.


Allelic deletions of the short arm of chromosome 1 are common in oligodendrogliomas and have been correlated with chemosensitivity and better prognosis in patients with high-grade oligodendrogliomas. In these tumors, 1p loss is also inversely related to deletions of the CDKN2A gene on 9p, which encodes the key cell cycle regulatory molecule p16INK4A… (More)
