Analysis of BRAF point mutation in papillary thyroid carcinoma

Sykorova Vlasta , Dvorakova Sarka , Laco Jan , Ryska Ales , Kodetova Daniela , Astl Jaromir , Vesely David , Bendlova Bela

BRAF point mutations are found in 29-69% of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). BRAF is a serine-threonine kinase involved in the phoshorylation of MAPK signaling pathway. The mutation is located in the exon 15 of BRAF, resulting in the substitution of valine to glutamate at codon 600 (V600E). Mutation generates unregulated B-Raf activity that leads to increased cellular proliferation. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of BRAF mutation in the Czech population...

Objective: RET fusion genes are known driver mutation in thyroid cancer and have been described mainly in pediatric thyroid carcinomas, in which they represent the most common genetic alteration. In large cohorts of adult patients, RET fusions have not yet been well characterized. The aims of this study were to identify RET fusion-positive thyroid tumors in a cohort of different types of thyroid carcinomas and to correlate them with clinical and hist...

Objectives: RET fusion genes are known driver mutations in papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTCs) and have been described mainly in pediatric PTCs, in which they represent the most common genetic alteration. The aims of this study were to identify RET fusion genes in PTCs (from pediatric as well as adult patients), to correlate them with clinical and histopathological features and to determine the prognostic significance of RET fusion genes based on lon...

Objectives: Variants in the EIF1AX gene have been reported in malignant as well as benign thyroid nodules and their clinical significance is still unclear due to their low prevalence. The aim of this study was to identify EIF1AX variants in a large cohort of different types of thyroid nodules and to correlate them with clinical and pathological data.Methods: The study consisted of 904 thyroid nodule samples. The cohort included 577 papi...
