Molecular genetic defects in endometrial carcinomas: microsatellite instability, PTEN and beta-catenin (CTNNB1) genes mutations

The present study aims to assess the incidence of microsatellite instability (MSI) and mutations in the PTEN and beta-catenin (CTNNB1) genes in endometrial carcinomas and to analyze the detected defects in these factors in relation to each other and to the clinico-pathological features of tumors. In a series of 56 endometrioid endometrial carcinomas, the… CONTINUE READING
