    Description: Chromosomal translocations that encode fusion oncoproteins have been observed consistently in leukemias/lymphomas and sarcomas but not in carcinomas, the most common human cancers. Here, we report that t(2;3)(q13;p25), a translocation identified in a subset of human thyroid follicular carcinomas, results in fusion of the DNA binding domains of the thyroid transcription factor PAX8 to domains A to F of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) gamma1. PAX8-PPARgamma1 mRNA and protein were detected in 5 of 8 thyroid follicular carcinomas but not in 20 follicular adenomas, 10 papillary carcinomas, or 10 multinodular hyperplasias. PAX8-PPARgamma1 inhibited thiazolidinedione-induced transactivation by PPARgamma1 in a dominant negative manner. The experiments demonstrate an oncogenic role for PPARgamma and suggest that PAX8-PPARgamma1 may be useful in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid carcinoma.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Notes: 〈/span〉Kroll, T G -- Sarraf, P -- Pecciarini, L -- Chen, C J -- Mueller, E -- Spiegelman, B M -- Fletcher, J A -- CA75425/CA/NCI NIH HHS/ -- New York, N.Y. -- Science. 2000 Aug 25;289(5483):1357-60.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Author address: 〈/span〉Department of Pathology, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA 02115, USA.〈br /〉〈span class="detail_caption"〉Record origin:〈/span〉 〈a href="" target="_blank"〉PubMed〈/a〉
