OLIG2 is a novel immunohistochemical marker associated with the presence of PAX3/7-FOXO1 translocation in rhabdomyosarcomas.
Probably the most frequent histological sorts of rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) in kids are embryonal (ERMS) and alveolar (ARMS) tumours. The vast majority of ARMS are characterised by the presence of PAX3/7-FOXO1 gene fusion and have a worse prognosis than fusion gene-negative ARMS. Nonetheless, identification of PAX3/7-FOXO1 fusion standing is difficult when utilizing formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) materials.…Read More
Melanin as a target for melanoma chemotherapy: pro-oxidant effect of oxygen and metals on melanoma viability.
Melanoma cells have a poor means to mediate oxidative stress, which can be attributed to constitutive abnormalities of their melanosomes. We hypothesize that disorganization of the melanosomes will permit chemical concentrating on of the melanin inside. Chemical research present that beneath oxidative circumstances, artificial melanins display elevated metallic affinity and a susceptibility to redox biking…Read More
