Expression of the receptor for epidermal growth factor correlates with increased dosage of chromosome 7 in malignant melanoma

, : Expression of the receptor for epidermal growth factor correlates with increased dosage of chromosome 7 in malignant melanoma. Somatic Cell & Molecular Genetics 11(3): 297-302

Epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor is expressed selectively by human melanoma cells which show the presence of an extra copy of chromosome 7. None of the cells of benign pigmented lesions (nevi) or radial growth phase (nonmetastic) primary melanoma expressed EGF receptor and none of these cells showed an extra copy of chromosome 7. A single extra dose of a gene (for EGF receptor) may provide a selective advantage to cells in the late stages of tumorigenesis.

The role of the adaptive immune response, with regard to the development of autoantibodies, has been extensively studied in primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). However, the importance of innate immunity has been noted only recently. Based on the prop...
