Characterization of a Testis Specific Antigen in the Mouse
Summary: The partial characterization of a mouse hydrosoluble testis specific protein by crossed immunoelectrophoresis, ion‐exchange chromatography and SDS‐Page was made. This protein presented a low electrophoretic motility ...
HIGH EXPRESSION OF CANCER TESTIS ANTIGENS MAGE-A, MAGE-C1/CT7, MAGE-C2/CT10, NY-ESO-1, AND GAGE IN ADVANCED SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA OF THE LARYNX
Background. Despite diagnostic and therapeutic advances in head and neck cancer, the 5-year survival of patients with laryngeal cancer has not improved in the last 30 years. Several recent studies indicate that specific ...
A germ cell-specific nuclear antigen recognized by a monoclonal antibody raised against mouse testicular germ cells

Single testicular metastasis mimicking primary testicular neoplasm: A rare manifestation of prostate cancer
The incidence of secondary testicular tumors ranges from 0.02 to 2.5% among autopsies in general. With the exception of leukemias and lymphomas, prostate cancer is the most common primary site. It is diagnosed in autopsies ...
Number of expressed cancer/testis antigens identifies focal adhesion pathway genes as possible targets for multiple myeloma therapy
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2010)
Considering that the importance of cancer/testis (CT) antigens in multiple myeloma (MM) biology is still under investigation, the present study aimed to: (1) identify genes differentially expressed in MM using microarray ...
Cancer/Testis Antigen Expression on Mesenchymal Stem Cells Isolated from Different Tissues
(INT INST ANTICANCER RESEARCH, 2010)
Background/Aims: The expression of cancer/testis antigens (CTAs) on additional normal tissues or stem cells may restrict their use as cancer targets. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the mRNA levels of ...
Dual role of immune cells in the testis: protective or pathogenic for germ cells?
(Taylor & Francis, 2013-01)
The purpose of this review is to describe how the immune cells present in the testis interact with the germinal epithelium contributing to survival or apoptosis of germ cells (GCs). Physiologically, the immunosuppressor ...
Subcutaneous and testicular metastasis from prostatic adenocarcinoma with neuroendocrine differentiation
The pathological finding of testicular metastasis in cases of disseminated prostatic adenocarcinoma is rare, but was more frequently reported in the past, when bilateral castration was performed more often. The existence ...
