ser120-to-gly substitution in the NM23 gene in 6 of 28 advanced neuroblastomas but in none of 22 limited-stage neuroblastomas (8047138)
Reduced expression of NM23 is associated with a high potential for metastasis in some tumor types. Its expression is increased in aggressive neuroblastoma (MIM.256700).
