Somatic mosaicism of EPAS1 mutations in the syndrome of paraganglioma and somatostatinoma associated with polycythemia


We recently described a novel, non-inherited syndrome of tumor-specific mutations of hypoxia-inducible factor 2α, encoded by EPAS1, leading to formation of multiple paragangliomas and somatostatinomas in the setting of congenital polycythemia. Although we had suspected that somatic mosaicism of EPAS1 mutations was the underlying cause of tumorigenesis, we… (More)
