- Immunohistochemistry for human telomerase reverse transcriptase catalytic subunit (hTERT): a study of 143 benign and malignant soft tissue and bone tumoursRajiv M Patel
Department of Pathology and Dermatology, The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109 5602, USA
Pathology 41:527-32. 2009..Only a small number of mesenchymal tumours have been previously evaluated for hTERT expression. We hypothesised that hTERT expression would be frequently present in sarcomas, but not in benign tumours...
- FUS (16p11) gene rearrangement as detected by fluorescence in-situ hybridization in cutaneous low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma: a potential diagnostic toolRajiv M Patel
Department of Pathology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA
Am J Dermatopathol 33:140-3. 2011..When applied to suspicious superficial myxoid or fibromyxoid neoplasms, the FUS FISH probe in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue can be a useful ancillary technique for diagnosis of this uncommon and deceptively bland tumor...
- Utilization of fluorescence in situ hybridization in the diagnosis of 230 mesenchymal neoplasms: an institutional experienceMunir R Tanas
Department of Pathology, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA
Arch Pathol Lab Med 134:1797-803. 2010..Mesenchymal neoplasms harbor characteristic translocations and amplification of gene regions amenable to evaluation by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH)...
