Novel TP53 gene mutation and correlation with p53 immunohistochemistry in a mixed epithelial carcinoma of the endometrium

Gynecol Oncol Case Rep. 2012 Oct 26:3:11-3. doi: 10.1016/j.gynor.2012.10.005. eCollection 2012.


► We examine the correlation between p53 immunohistochemistry and TP53 gene mutation status in a mixed epithelial endometrial carcinoma. ► We describe a novel R306* (c.916C > T) mutation in exon 8 of the TP53 gene. ► We propose that the distinction between Type I and Type II endometrial carcinomas may be more fluid than previously believed.
