have been identified in each part of the gastrointestinal tract, starting with the mouth (e.
The function of the neuroendocrine cells
described in the rat prostate could be related to the excretion of prostate secretions toward the urethra, and these cells might be regulated by androgens (Rodriguez et al.
Achaete-scute complex-like 1 (ASCL1), termed mASH1 in rodents and hASHl in humans (m/hASH1), belongs to the basic helix-loop-helix family, and is a crucial transcription factor for neuroendocrine cell
Morphology and antigen expression profile of pulmonary neuroendocrine cells
in reactive proliferations and diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cell
One deals with the role of neuroendocrine cells
in the formation of the cancer.
Although initial pathologic analysis showed that the tumor was composed of neuroendocrine cells
, there was still uncertainty regarding the site of origin.
NSE is localized in neurons and in peripheral and central neuroendocrine cells
["amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation" cells (APUD)] .
Neuroendocrine tumors are a type of cancer that arises from neuroendocrine cells
and can occur in different parts of the body.
D, A tumoral thrombus in a large vessel is entirely composed of neuroendocrine cells
with the characteristics described above (inset) (hematoxylin-eosin, original magnifications X50 [B and D] and X200 [C and inset]).
Neuroendocrine tumors are a rare type of cancer that originate in neuroendocrine cells
throughout the body, and are most often found in the GI tract, lungs or pancreas.
1,2] In practical terms, molecular markers are invaluable in defining neuroendocrine cells
Several previous studies have demonstrated the presence of neuroendocrine cells
in normal laryngeal tissue, but no such studies have been performed at the jugular foramen.
