Immunohistochemistry of ductal adenocarcinoma of the prostate and adenocarcinomas of non-prostatic origin: a comparative study.
Stockholm, Sweden. In Apmis, Feb 2016
Slides were stained for estrogen, progesterone and androgen receptor, prolactin, PSA, prostein, PSMA, PSAP, CDX2, lysozyme, villin, monoclonal CEA, CK7, CK20, HMWCK, p63, p504s, c-Myc, EGFR, Ki-67, p16, p21, p27, p53, PTEN, ERG, and PAX-8.
Peritoneal malignant mesothelioma (PMM), and primary peritoneal serous carcinoma (PPSC) and reactive mesothelial hyperplasia (RMH) of the peritoneum. Immunohistochemical and fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) analyses.
Tokorozawa, Japan. In J Clin Pathol, Feb 2016
METHODS: To help differentiate PMM from PPSC and RMH, we used immunohistochemistry to examine mesothelial-associated markers (calretinin, AE1/AE3, CK5/6, CAM5.2, D2-40, WT-1, HBME1, thrombomodulin), adenocarcinoma-associated markers (CEA, BerEP4, MOC31, ER (estrogen receptor), PgR, TTF-1, Claudin-4, Pax8), and malignant-related and benign-related markers (epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), desmin, GLUT-1, CD146 and IMP3), and FISH to examine for homozygous deletion of 9p21.
How to approach the many faces of endometrioid carcinoma.
Houston, United States. In Mod Pathol, Jan 2016
Undifferentiated carcinoma tends to be negative for PAX8 and ER/PR with variable expression of keratins and can be associated with microsatellite instability (may be part of Lynch syndrome).
Genome-wide significant risk associations for mucinous ovarian carcinoma.
In Nat Genet, Aug 2015
We identified significant expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) associations for HOXD9 at 2q31.1 in ovarian (P = 4.95 × 10(-4), false discovery rate (FDR) = 0.003) and colorectal (P = 0.01, FDR = 0.09) tumors and for PAX8 at 2q13 in colorectal tumors (P = 0.03, FDR = 0.09).
[Clinicopathologic study of primary renal hemangioblastoma].
Nanjing, China. In Zhonghua Bing Li Xue Za Zhi, Jun 2015
Immunohistochemical study showed that the stromal cells were positive for alpha-inhibin (3/3), S-100 protein (3/3), EGFR (2/2), PAX-2 (2/2), PAX-8 (2/2) and CA9 (2/2) but negative for CKpan (2/2) and HMB45 (2/2).
Landscape of gene fusions in epithelial cancers: seq and ye shall find.
Ann Arbor, United States. In Genome Med, 2014
Tumor-specific gene fusions can serve as diagnostic biomarkers or help define molecular subtypes of tumors; for example, gene fusions involving oncogenes such as ERG, ETV1, TFE3, NUT, POU5F1, NFIB, PLAG1, and PAX8 are diagnostically useful.
Generation of functional thyroid from embryonic stem cells.
Brussels, Belgium. In Nature, 2012
Here we report that a transient overexpression of the transcription factors NKX2-1 and PAX8 is sufficient to direct mouse embryonic stem-cell differentiation into thyroid follicular cells that organize into three-dimensional follicular structures when treated with thyrotropin.
PAX8-PPARgamma1 fusion oncogene in human thyroid carcinoma [corrected].
Boston, United States. In Science, 2000
Here, we report that t(2;3)(q13;p25), a translocation identified in a subset of human thyroid follicular carcinomas, results in fusion of the DNA binding domains of the thyroid transcription factor PAX8 to domains A to F of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) gamma1.
