Abstract

Rearrangements concerning chromosome 9p are a late event in the progression of human astrocytic tumors to their most malignant form. The expression of PAX5, which maps to chromosome 9p13, was studied in primary human brain tumors of astrocytic origin. Whereas murine Pax5 is not expressed in the forebrain at any stage, PAX5 expression was increased in a range of astrocytomas (WHO grades II-IV) which originated in the forebrain. Expression of PAX5 was limited to those cells which also expressed the oncogenes myc, fos, or jun singularly or in combination. The epidermal growth factor receptor was highly expressed in glioblastoma multiform tumors in areas which were also highly PAX5 positive. We conclude that the missappropriate expression of PAX5 may aid in promoting the progression of astrocytomal malignancy.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
