TNXB

Monday 22 September 2003

Immunochemistry

- Tenascin-X may be a new diagnostic marker of malignant mesothelioma in the differential diagnosis of cancers involving the serosal cavities, particularly in the differential diagnosis between this tumor and ovarian/peritoneal serous carcinoma. (#19738457#)

Pathology

- haploinsufficiency of TNXB is associated with hypermobility type of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (MIM.130020) and Ehlers-Danlos-like syndrome (MIM.606408) (#12865992#)

- Tenascin XB (TNXB) has been identified as a gene that is more highly expressed in malignant mesothelioma compared with ovarian/peritoneal serous carcinoma based on gene expression array analysis.

- Tenascin C and tenascin XB are possibly involved in tumorigenesis associated with neurofibromatosis type 1. (#17202312#)
