26796488 Detection of the CRTC1/MAML2 fusion transcript provides useful information for MEC diagnosis but is not associated with differences in survival outcomes.
26503699 The molecular basis underlying CRTC1-MAML2 oncogenic functions were identified in mucoepidermoid carcinoma cells.
25953768 SNPs in Notch pathway genes may be predictors of cutaneous melanoma disease-specific survival.
25123064 We identified MAML2 rearrangements in five of nine odontogenic cysts lined by mucus-secreting cells
25071166 Malignant mucoepidermoid salivary gland tumors can arise from a recurrent t (11, 19)(q21;p13.1) translocation that generates an unusual chimeric CRTC1/MAML2 oncoprotein.
24855209 The rearrangement between MAML2 and CXCR4, created by a t(2;11)(q22.1;q21) translocation, results in a new fusion gene in which a portion of CXCR4 is linked to the MAML2 gene.
24771140 Translocation t(11;19)(q14-21;p12-13) in patients with Salivary mucoepidermoid carcinoma was reported , which results in fusion between exons 1 and 2 of MAML2 on chromosome 11q21.Fusion positive, MAML2 re-arrangements are present in 50-70 % of MECs.
24714697 MAML2 rearrangement appears frequent in PMEC and specific with this tumor. Both the presence of MAML2 rearrangement and absence of FLT1 tend to confer a favorable clinical outcome.
24647913 The high sensitivity and specificity of MAML2 rearrangement for central mucoepidermoid carcinoma points to its utility as a diagnostic adjunct in separating mucinous cystic lesions of the gnathic bones.
24468654 Lacrimal and salivary gland PAs and Ca-ex-PAs have similar genomic profiles and frequently overexpress the PLAG1 oncoprotein. Copy number gains involving 9p23-p22.3 (NFIB) and 22q12-qter (PDGFB) may be of importance for disease progression.
24134933 using FISH to identify MAML2 rearrangement is a valuable diagnostic tool in the evaluation of thymic malignancies, specifically, distinguishing mucoepidermoid carcinoma from squamous cell carcinoma and adenosquamous carcinoma.
24121173 Metaplastic Warthin tumor and metaplastic pleomorphic adenoma of salivary glands did not harbor CRTC1-MAML2 and CRTC3-MAML2 fusion transcripts, respectively, or MAML2 gene rearrangement.
23975434 aberrantly activated AREG-EGFR signaling is required for CRTC1-MAML2-positive MEC cell growth and survival, suggesting that EGFR-targeted therapies will benefit patients with advanced, unresectable CRTC1-MAML2-positive MEC.
23855785 high-grade salivary mucoepidermoid carcinoma comprises a heterogeneous group of tumours in terms of molecular pathogenesis, in particular MAML2 fusion status
23333304 HIV-1 Vif downregulates the expression of mastermind-like 2 (MAML2) in Vif-expression T cells
23035786 The presence of the MAML2 gene split defines a distinct mucoepidermoid carcinoma subset that is associated clinicopathologically with favorable tumor features.
22833306 The lack of significant correlation with histologic grade or pathologic stage implies that the previously reported prognostic value of the MAML2 translocation may be an artifact of misclassification of MEC as other tumors.
22582766 presence of small subpopulation of cells carrying MAML2 rearrangement in areas of squamous metaplasia in WT could predispose lesions to malignant transformation in mucoepidermoid carcinoma and could represent molecular link between the 2 entities.
21777943 The presence of MAML2 rearrangement can be used as supportive evidence to distinguish oncocytic mucoepidermoid carcinoma from other oncocytic lesions.
21668476 mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the salivary glands positive for CRTC1-MAML2 or CRTC3-MAML2 fusion formed a favourable tumour subset that was distinct from fusion-negative cases
21119597 in line with the essential role of MAML proteins for assembly and activity of the NOTCH transcriptional complex (NTC), we show that MAML-derived small-peptide constructs block NOTCH activity and disrupt NTC formation in vitro
21074686 The t(11;19) translocation and its CRTC1/MAML1 fusion transcript have been identified in mucoepidermoid carcinomas at different sites and are believed to be associated with the development of a subset of these tumors.
20625861 We report an example of intraosseous mucoepidermoid carcinoma with positive TORC1/MAML2 gene fusion transcript and discuss the clinical implications.
20588178 MECT1/MAML2 translocation status may be important prognostically in salivary mucoepidermoid carcinomas, but it does not seem to override traditional clinicopathologic parameters.
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19749740 Mucoepidermoid carcinomas possessing CRTC3-MAML2 fusion may be associated with favorable clinicopathological features and patients may be younger than those with CRTC1-MAML2 fusion or those with no detectable gene fusion.
19531414 CRTC1-MAML2 fusion was associated with favorable clinicopathologic tumor features and was useful in predicting the overall survival of patients with salivary gland mucoepidermoid carcinoma
19521953 Mucoepidermoid carcinomas are often characterized by the fusion gene CRTC1-MAML2. The mean expression level of an embryonic stem cell marker, HMGA2 was studied and found to be higher in fusion negative than in positive tumors.
19269006 MAML2 and MECT1 fusion product can be detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization and reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction analysis performed on low- and high-grade primary bronchopulmonary mucoepidermoid carcinoma
19240061 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18206539 The presence of the t(11;19)(q21;p13) rearrangement favors a diagnosis of mucoepidermoid carcinoma.
18050304 study reports for the first time a CRTC3-MAML2 fusion gene in a mucoepidermoid carcinoma, as determined by RT-PCR and sequencing.
17551948 MAML2 involving a chimeric gene might contribute to carcinogenesis in multiple neoplasms by the disruption of NOTCH signaling.
17437281 CRTC1/MAML2 transcript may be detected in both low and high grade mucoepidermoid carcinoma (MEC), that fusion negative tumors may define a subset of biologically aggressive MEC's tumors
17334997 The present and previous observations indicate that the CRTC1-MAML2 fusion is etiologically linked to benign and low-grade malignant tumors originating from diverse exocrine glands rather than being linked to a separate tumor entity.
16818685 The MECT1-MAML2 fusion transcript may be specific to mucoepidermoid carcinoma and associated with a distinct mucoepidermoid carcinoma subset that exhibits favorable clinicopathologic features and an indolent clinical course.
14720503 cloning of a novel fusion gene in mucoepidermoid carcinomas & benign Warthin's tumors; the fusion, which results from a translocation, creates a chimeric gene in which exon 1 of a novel gene designated WAMTP1 is linked to exons 2-5 of MAML2 [WAMPT1]
12539049 cloning and functional analyses of the t(11;19) fusion oncogene t(11;19)(q21;p13) translocation in mucoepidermoid carcinoma creates a novel fusion product that disrupts a Notch signaling pathway.
