Wild-type ALK and activating ALK-R1275Q and ALK-F1174L mutations upregulate Myc and initiate tumor formation in murine neural crest progenitor cells.
 

Author(s): Gisèle Montavon, Nicolas Jauquier, Aurélie Coulon, Michel Peuchmaur, Marjorie Flahaut, Katia Balmas Bourloud, Pu Yan, Olivier Delattre, Lukas Sommer, Jean-Marc Joseph, Isabelle Janoueix-Lerosey, Nicole Gross, Annick Mühlethaler-Mottet

Journal: Oncotarget. 2014 Jun;5(12):4452-66.

 

The anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene is overexpressed, mutated or amplified in most neuroblastoma (NB), a pediatric neural crest-derived embryonal tumor. The two most frequent mutations, ALK-F1174L and ALK-R1275Q, contribute to NB tumorigenesis in mouse models, and cooperate ...

Melanoma spheroids grown under neural crest cell conditions are highly plastic migratory/invasive tumor cells endowed with immunomodulator function.
 

Author(s): Kiran Ramgolam, Jessica Lauriol, Claude Lalou, Laura Lauden, Laurence Michel, Pierre de la Grange, Abdel-Majid Khatib, Fawzi Aoudjit, Dominique Charron, Catherine Alcaide-Loridan, Reem Al-Daccak

Journal:

 

The aggressiveness of melanoma tumors is likely to rely on their well-recognized heterogeneity and plasticity. Melanoma comprises multi-subpopulations of cancer cells some of which may possess stem cell-like properties. Although useful, the sphere-formation assay to identify stem ...

Enteric neural crest differentiation in ganglioneuromas implicates Hedgehog signaling in peripheral neuroblastic tumor pathogenesis.
 

Author(s): Timothy R Gershon, Ashton Shiraz, Arash Shirazi, Li-Xuan Qin, William L Gerald, Anna M Kenney, Nai-Kong Cheung

Journal:

 

Peripheral neuroblastic tumors (PNTs) share a common origin in the sympathetic nervous system, but manifest variable differentiation and growth potential. Malignant neuroblastoma (NB) and benign ganglioneuroma (GN) stand at opposite ends of the clinical spectrum. We hypothesize that ...

Reprogramming multipotent tumor cells with the embryonic neural crest microenvironment.
 

Author(s): Jennifer C Kasemeier-Kulesa, Jessica M Teddy, Lynne-Marie Postovit, Elisabeth A Seftor, Richard E B Seftor, Mary J C Hendrix, Paul M Kulesa

Journal: Dev. Dyn.. 2008 Oct;237(10):2657-66.

 

The embryonic microenvironment is an important source of signals that program multipotent cells to adopt a particular fate and migratory path, yet its potential to reprogram and restrict multipotent tumor cell fate and invasion is unrealized. Aggressive tumor cells share many characteristics ...
