Pituitary gland and beta-catenin signaling: from ontogeny to oncogenesis.
Although pituitary tumors are mostly benign, they share certain molecular events with more malignant neoplasia, although their precise pathogenesis is far from established. The acquisition of new functional characteristics during their evolution suggests a multistep process that leads to tumor transformation. Mutations in classical tumor suppressor genes or oncogenes are infrequently associated with pituitary tumorigenesis. However, alterations in different signaling pathways, especially thos...Expand abstract
