GENE - TERM ANNOTATION REPORT

CRRD ID: 621543
Species: Rattus norvegicus
CRRD Object: Gene
Symbol: Chek2
Name: checkpoint kinase 2
Acc ID: DOID:3069
Term: astrocytoma
Definition: Neoplasms of the brain and spinal cord derived from glial cells which vary from histologically benign forms to highly anaplastic and malignant tumors. Fibrillary astrocytomas are the most common type and may be classified in order of increasing malignancy (grades I through IV). In the first two decades of life, astrocytomas tend to originate in the cerebellar hemispheres; in adults, they most frequently arise in the cerebrum and frequently undergo malignant transformation. (From Devita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp2013-7; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1082)
