To this end, we compared the gene expression profiles of metastatic-derived neuroblasts (BM and Myoc) with stage 4 disease profiles from the IGR-N-91 experimental human NB model (9,10) using Agilent long oligonucleotide arrays with 8 arrays (see the section "Microarray Experiments", above).
The higher differentially up-regulated gene in this set is GALNTI3 (12-fold higher in metastatic neuroblasts compared with primary tumor, P = 9.
We investigated the production of GALNAC-Ts in the IGR-N-91 neuroblastoma experimental model, which offered the opportunityto compare neuroblastoma cell lines established from a primary tumor (PTX) and matched metastatic neuroblasts (BM).
We previously reported that GALNT13 is highly expressed (12 times higher) in metastatic neuroblasts than in primary tumors (19).
Subventricular zone-derived neuroblasts migrate and differentiate into mature neurons in the post-stroke adult striatum.
The neuroblasts must multiply, migrate to the proper location, and differentiate during neurogenesis (Grinspan, 1998; Shen, Xueming, Capela, & Temple, 1998).
Cadmium has also been shown to influence the proliferation and differentiation of neuroblasts in culture (Gulisano et al.
Differentially expressed genes for primary tumor xenograft (PTX; stage 4 disease) and BM or Myoc metastatic neuroblasts.
The fetal adrenal gland is composed primarily of neuroblasts, with an inconspicuous amount of pheochromoblasts.

As their names indicate, the least differentiated lesion, neuroblastoma, contains primitive neuroblasts, whereas the better differentiated, ganglioneuroma, contains mature Schwann and ganglion cells.
