#122 Molecular genetic findings in gastric carcinoid suggest possible neurofibromin/Ras pathway involvement in carcinoid pathogenesis
Introduction: The molecular pathogenesis of gastrointestinal carcinoid tumours is poorly understood. We have been undertaking molecular genetic investigations of a young woman with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) in whom a gastric carcinoid tumor was detected following an episode of gastrointestinal bleeding. She was otherwise relatively mildly affected by NF1. In NF1, gastric carcinoids have been found previously only in patients with other predisposing factors, which were absent in this patient.

#527 Pheochromocytoma Molecular Analysis After Maternal Transmission of SDHD Mutation Elucidates Mechanism of Parent-of-Origin Effect
Introduction: In SDHD mutation families, paragangliomas and pheochromocytomas usually occur only after paternal transmission of the mutation. This important but unexplained parent-of-origin effect is not due to imprinting of the SDHD gene itself (as was initially suspected) since SDHD is biallelically expressed.
