  •   TP73 and Neuroblastoma

    TP73 was a candidate tumour suppresser gene for neuroblastoma given that a) the gene is homologous to TP53 and b) TP73 is located in the 1p36 region which is frequently deleted in neuroblastoma. However, research suggests that TP73 is infrequently mutated in neuroblastoma; in a study including tumours detected by mass screening (Ichimiya et al, 1999) only 2 out of 140 neuroblastomas had TP73 mutations; though LOH for TP73 was seen in 19% of tumours with LOH more frequent in neuroblastomas which were sporadic (not detected by screening), MYCN amplified, and advanced stages. While TP73 may not be a classic Knudson's type tumour supressor gene for neuroblastoma its role in the disease remains to be clarified.
