Expression of m-TOR Pathway Components in Gastric Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: A Pilot Study Abstract #1307

Introduction: The mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway plays a key role in the regulation of cell proliferation, protein synthesis and neuroendocrine tumor growth.
Aim(s): This study aimed to assess the activation of the mTOR pathway in the different types of gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (gNENs) and to correlate expression with clinicopathological variables and prognosis.
Materials and methods: Immunohistochemistry (IHC) was performed to assess the expression of phosphorylated mTOR (p-mTOR) and its downstream target, the eukaryotic initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1 (4EBP1) in 34 surgically resected gNENs.

#87 Alterations of E-cadherin, beta-catenin and caveolin-1 expression in gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP NETs) comprise a heterogeneous group of neoplasm with different histological patterns and biological behavior. Only limited information is available on immunohistochemical prognostic factors of disease. Alterations in the cell-cell adhesion system are closely associated with cell invasion and metastasis in many malignancies, including those of endocrine origin. Abnormal expression of E-cadherin and beta-catenin has been reported to play an important role in these processes. Caveolin-1 has recently been identified as a tumor metastasis modifier factor, which might increase the cell metastasis potential through the interaction with E-cadherin. However, the role of caveolin-1 in GEP NETs cell invasion remains unknown.

#886 Expression Patterns of Cellular Retinoic Acid Binding Protein-I in Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Lung: A Pilot Immunohistochemical Study
Introduction: Cellular retinoic acid binding protein-I (CRABP-I), a member of the lipid-binding proteins family, plays an important role in retinoic acid-mediated cell proliferation and is essential for the development of various malignant neoplasms. The actual role of CRABP-I in tumor progression remains unknown.
