Retinoblastoma Gene Protein Information for Pathologists
Retinoblastoma Gene Product (Rb) is a 110-114 kDa nuclear protein that plays a crucial role in cell cycle progression by regulating cell cycle arrest at G1-S. It is encoded by a tumor suppressor gene at 13q14. Rb is present in germline mutations or loss predispose to retinoblastoma and osteosarcoma. Somatic mutations cause various tumors
and specific point mutations my inhibit Rb-1 and c-myc binding. For thyroid neoplasms, follicular adenomas were usually positive, follicular and papillary carcinomas were usually negative.
