MYCN is the only highly expressed gene from the core amplified domain in human neuroblastomas.


MYCN amplification in neuroblastomas is strongly associated with advanced stages of disease and a poor prognosis. We have recently defined a 130 kb core region of the MYCN amplicon that is consistently amplified in neuroblastomas. However, it has been argued that other expressed sequences were coamplified with MYCN and, as a result, might contribute to the… (More)
