Pituitary adenomas are frequent intracranial tumors that often associate with the hypersecretion of pituitary hormones or may be non-secreting (nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas, NFPA). Tumors resembling human NFPAs develop with complete penetrance in rats affected by the multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome, MENX. This syndrome is caused by a germline loss of function mutation in p27Kip1. Gene expression array analysis performed in our group identified a considera...
