Summary of "Novel TFG-RET Fusion in Spindle Cell Tumour with S100 and CD34 Co-Expresssion."

The classification of spindle cell tumours with monomorphic morphology and lacking a clear immunophenotype remains challenging. Recurrent fusions involving receptor tyrosine or cytoplasmic kinase genes have been described in various spindle cell tumours . Among these, spindle cell tumours with monomorphic morphology displaying distinct stromal and perivascular hyalinization and co-expressing S100 and CD34 can be grouped into an entity featuring recurrent fusions involving RAF1, BRAF and NTRK1/2 genes . A case with similar morphology showing NCOA4-RET fusion was also described recently . In this report, we describe a case occurring in a child in which a novel gene fusion TFG-RET was identified.

Spindle cell tumour with S100 and CD34 co-expression showing PDZRN3-RAF1 rearrangement - a recently described entity.

Spindle cell tumours with S100 and CD34 co-expression (without SOX-10 positivity) have been recently collated into an entity showing recurrent fusions involving RAF1, BRAF and NTRK1/2 genes . These t...

S100 and CD34 positive spindle cell tumor with prominent perivascular hyalinization and a novel NCOA4-RET fusion.

We report a case of a 35-year old male patient with a tumor located in the deep dermis on his forearm. The lesion was completely excised but recurred 4 years later. The patient showed no signs of neur...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An S100 calcium binding protein that contains two EF HAND MOTIFS and plays a role as a calcium sensor and modulator for many cellular processes such as CELL CYCLE progression; CELL MOTILITY and reorganization of the ACTIN CYTOSKELETON. Its expression is induced by growth factors and it is overexpressed in patients with ACUTE MYELOID LEUKEMIA.

A member of the prominin family, AC133 Antigen is a 5-transmembrane antigen occurring as several isoforms produced by alternative splicing which are processed into mature forms. In humans, it is expressed as a subset of CD34 (bright) human hematopoietic stem cells and CD34 positive leukemias. Functionally, it is associated with roles in cell differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis. Specifically, it regulates the organization of apical plasma membrane in epithelial cells, disk morphogenesis during early retinal development, MAPK and Akt signaling pathways, and in cholesterol metabolism.

The sites in a dividing cell where the minus ends of the spindle MICROTUBULES assemble and where the separated sister CHROMATIDS converge.

Microtubule organizing centers of FUNGI and DIATOMS. They are embedded in the NUCLEAR ENVELOPE and evolve into the spindle apparatus during CELL DIVISION.

A class I viral fusion protein that forms the characteristic spikes, or peplomers, found on the viral surface that mediate virus attachment, fusion, and entry into the host cell. During virus maturation, it is cleaved into two subunits: S1, which binds to receptors in the host cell, and S2, which mediates membrane fusion.
