#2031 Screening of Differentially Expressed Genes in Gastric Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Based on Human Transcriptome Array
Introduction: Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (g-NENs) are a heterogeneous group of tumors.

#189 Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and Tissue Inhibitors of Matrix Metalloproteinases (TMIPs) in GEP NET Patients – A Potential Prognostic Biomarkers for Metastases
Introduction: MMPs have the ability to degrade the extracellular matrix and are responsible for tumor invasion and metastases. Higher TIMP-1 levels are associated with low survival rate in some types of cancer.

#357 Alternative Splicing and Differential Gene Expression in Pancreatic NETs
Introduction: Alternative splicing is an important mechanism to increase diversity of the proteome in higher organisms. These protein isoforms can provide as a selective drug target or marker for cancer diagnosis.
We present here a new DNA array that allows identification of splice variation and differential expression of 357 G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) and 11 proteins of the extracellular matrix.

#529 Alternative Splicing and Differential Gene Expression in Pancreatic NETs
Introduction: Protein isoforms resulting from differentially spliced mRNA may constitute peculiar drug targets or markers for cancer diagnosis. We here present a new DNA array that allows identification of splice variation and differential expression for 357 G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) and 11 proteins of the extracellular matrix.

#2141 Potential Role of SST5TMD4-Derived Peptides in the Malignancy of Neuroendocrine Tumors and Other Endocrine-Related Cancer Cells
Introduction: Extracellular fragments derived from membrane receptors can play relevant functional roles in certain tumoral pathologies and could provide novel diagnostic or therapeutic tools. We have identified a novel truncated somatostatin receptor type 5 variant, sst5TMD4, which is overexpressed and functionally active in different endocrine-related cancers, including neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Interestingly, sst5TMD4 has 4 transmembrane domains and its C-terminal tail is consequently exposed towards the extracellular matrix, and could, therefore, be the substrate for proteolytic enzymes.

#3003 The Proinflammatory Molecule, VAP-1, Is Enriched in the Stroma of Midgut NETs and Plaques of Carcinoid Heart Disease Valves
Introduction: Vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1) is a novel driver of tissue inflammation and fibrosis.

#2275 Analysis of Gene Expression Patterns of Rectum Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) Versus Healthy Tissue Reveals Alterations in the MAPK and WNT Signaling Pathways
Introduction: The neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the rectum are rare but increasing in incidence, by means of improved endoscopic techniques and histological reporting. They often occur as small polypoid lesions and G1, and in most cases an incidental finding at endoscopy.

#118 Gastrointestinal motility in patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Diarrhea is the most common symptom in patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). Somatostatin analogues reduce stool frequency and may increase gastrointestinal transit time (GITT). Motility tracking system® MTS-1 (MTS) (Motilis, Switzerland) is a novel, safe, almost non-invasive and easy-to-perform method for description of gastrointestinal motility.

#160 The role of T-type calcium channels in medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC): T-type calcium channel blockers inhibit hormone secretion and induce apoptotic cell death in a human MTC cell line
Introduction: Medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) accounts for approximately 5-10% of thyroid cancers. In the case of tumors limited to the thyroid gland, the prognosis is generally favorable, whereas 5-year survival averages only 40% in patients with metastatic disease. In these patients, conventional chemotherapy only occasionally leads to a complete response and partial responses are observed in less than 30% of the cases. Therefore, intense efforts are currently directed toward the identification of new druggable targets for the treatment of this devastating disease.

#459 Differential Claudin-1 Gene Expression in Neural Crest-Derived Tumors of Common Embryological Origin
Introduction: Pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma are neural crest-derived tumors originating from chromaffin cells, with the former being intra–adrenal in location, while the latter are extra-adrenal.
