The Wilms' tumor suppressor Wt1 is associated with the differentiation of retinoblastoma cells.

We have demonstrated recently that Wilms' tumor suppressor 1 (Wt1),in addition to its role in genitourinary formation,is required for the differentiation of ganglion cells in the developing retina. Here we provide further evidence that Wt1 is associated with neuronal differentiation. Thus, the retinoblastoma-derived human cell line, Y-79, contained robust… CONTINUE READING
