The SYT-SSX1 fusion type of synovial sarcoma is associated with increased expression of cyclin A and D1. A link between t(X;18)(p11.2; q11.2) and the cell cycle machinery


A recent large multi-centre study convincingly confirmed previous observations that the SYT-SSX1 fusion type, compared to SYT-SSX2, of synovial sarcoma is associated with a worse clinical outcome. Apart from the clinical impact, this fact also suggests (1) that the SYT-SSX fusion gene may influence molecular mechanisms involved in tumour growth and… (More)
