Erk activation as a possible mechanism of transformation of subependymal nodule into subependymal giant cell astrocytoma.
 

Author(s): M Siedlecka, S Szlufik, W Grajkowska, M Roszkowski, J Jóźwiak

Journal: Folia Neuropathol. 2015 ;53(1):8-14.

 

Subependymal nodule (SEN) and subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA) are brain lesions frequently found in tuberous sclerosis (TS). As about 10-15% of SENs enlarge and transform into SEGAs, we examined here the possible mechanism of the phenomenon.
