Gene Information

human ... PTEN(5728)

General description

The defects of PTEN have been implicated in human cancers from breast, prostate, thyroid, skin, endometrium, head and neck, and brain. Up to 50-60 percent of advanced prostate cancers show abnormal PTEN gene expression or loss of protein expression.


Synthetic peptide derived from the C-terminus of human PTEN protein.

Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) in loci of the 10q23 region that harbor the PTEN gene and mutations in the sequence of this gene have been found in several primary human tumors including breast carcinomas, suggesting that this gene could be...
