Loss of heterozygosity studies at the retinoblastoma and breast cancer susceptibility (BRCA2) loci in pituitary, parathyroid, pancreatic and carcinoid tumours.
OBJECTIVE: Allelic deletion of the retinoblastoma (Rb) gene on chromosome 13 has been reported in both pituitary and parathyroid tumours. We have investigated the roles of the Rb and the hereditary breast cancer susceptibility gene (BRCA2), which lie within 25 cM of each other on chromosome 13q12-14, in the multi-step aetiology of endocrine tumours. PATIENTS AND MEASUREMENTS: Seventy-seven endocrine tumours (43 anterior pituitary, 22 parathyroid, 7 carcinoid, and 5 pancreatic islet cell tumou...Expand abstract
