原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Granulosa cell tumors (GCT) are unique sex-cord stromal tumors which account for ∼8% of all ovarian malignancies. They exhibit morphological, biochemical and hormonal features similar to proliferating granulosa cells of the preovulatory follicle, including estrogen and inhibin synthesis. A somatic missense mutation in the forkhead box L2 ( FOXL2 ) gene (C134W) is unique to adult GCT, and absent in other ovarian cancers. FOXL2 is a transcription factor that plays a critical role in ovarian function, in particular, proliferation and differentiation of granulosa cells. The molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenicity of the mutant FOXL2 remain unresolved. Here we review the molecular alterations known to be associated with mutant FOXL2 and the potential signaling...
