    Abstract : Neuroblastoma is a malignant solid tumor of childhood with a poor prognosis. The growth of solid tumors has been shown to be dependent on new blood vessel formation, i.e. angiogenesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Oncogenic ALK signaling in neuroblastoma

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ganesh Umapathy; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaplastic lymphoma kinase; neuroblastoma; ERK5; Akt; MYCN; mTOR;

    Abstract : Over the last decade Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK), a receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) has been identified as a translocation partner in diverse cancer types. In tumors, where the full-length ALK RTK itself is mutated, such as neuroblastoma, the picture is less clear regarding ALKs role as an oncogenic driver. READ MORE
