Mxi1 tumor suppressor gene is not mutated in primary pancreatic adenocarcinoma.


Amplification of the c-myc oncogene occurs in a variety of solid tumors, including pancreatic adenocarcinomas. The MXI1 gene, located at 10q24-q25, may serve to negatively regulate c-myc oncogene activity, and potentially has tumor suppressor function. As such, altered MXI1 function might contribute to tumorigenesis. We examined 40 primary human pancreatic… (More)
