Pleiomorphic adenoma gene 1

PLAG1, pleomorphic adenoma gene 1
Pleomorphic adenoma gene 1 encodes a zinc finger protein with 2 putative nuclear localization signals. PLAG1, which is developmentally regulated, has been shown to be consistently rearranged in pleomorphic adenomas of the salivary glands. PLAG1 is activated by the reciprocal chromosomal translocations involving 8q12 in a subset of salivary gland pleomorphic adenomas. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

The relationship between prenatal exposure to BP-3 and Hirschsprung's disease.
Xia et al., Nanjing, China. In Chemosphere, Feb 2016
What's more, we discovered dose-response relationship between RET expression and BP-3 exposure dose, and miR-218 and some other genes involved in SLIT2/ROBO1-miR-218-RET/PLAG1 pathway were also related to BP-3 exposure.
Emerging role of PLAG1 as a regulator of growth and reproduction.
De Groef et al., Huddinge, Sweden. In J Endocrinol, Feb 2016
Pleomorphic adenoma gene 1 (PLAG1) belongs to the PLAG family of zinc finger transcription factors along with PLAG-like 1 and PLAG-like 2. The PLAG1 gene is best known as an oncogene associated with certain types of cancer, most notably pleomorphic adenomas of the salivary gland.
Thoracic Myoepithelial Tumors: A Pathologic and Molecular Study of 8 Cases With Review of the Literature.
Travis et al., Nagasaki, Japan. In Am J Surg Pathol, Feb 2016
We examined the histologic and immunohistochemical features of 8 primary thoracic MTs and performed fluorescence in situ hybridization for EWSR1, FUS, PLAG1, and HMGA2, as well as several partner genes.
Integrated data analysis reveals uterine leiomyoma subtypes with distinct driver pathways and biomarkers.
Aaltonen et al., Helsinki, Finland. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Feb 2016
Leiomyomas with HMGA2 aberrations displayed highly significant up-regulation of the proto-oncogene pleomorphic adenoma gene 1 (PLAG1), suggesting that HMGA2 promotes tumorigenesis through PLAG1 activation.

Gautier, Montpellier, France. In Genetics, Dec 2015
Among these, four (surrounding the KITLG, KIT, EDN3, and ALB genes) contained SNPs strongly associated with the piebald coloration pattern while a fifth (surrounding PLAG1) could be associated to morphological differences across the populations.

Cleveland et al., Birmingham, United States. In Ann Thorac Surg, Nov 2015
Final diagnosis can be confirmed using molecular genetic analysis; a genetic hallmark of lipoblastoma is the rearrangement of chromosomal region 8q12 and the PLAG1 gene.

Myoepithelial neoplasms of soft tissue: an updated review of the clinicopathologic, immunophenotypic, and genetic features.
Fletcher et al., Boston, United States. In Head Neck Pathol, Mar 2015
Up to 45 % of myoepitheliomas and myoepithelial carcinomas harbor EWSR1 gene rearrangements, unlike mixed tumor/chondroid syringoma which is characterized by PLAG1 gene rearrangement.

Chinnaiyan et al., 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.
Chromosomal rearrangements in PLAG1 of myoepithelial salivary gland tumours.
