Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) is a tumor suppressor gene that is mutated in a wide range of cancers. PTEN plays a role in cell proliferation, apoptosis and migration. Reduced expression of PTEN has been reported in a variety of malignancies, including breast, prostate and endometrial cancer. In breast and prostate cancer, loss of PTEN expression has been shown to correlate positively with advanced stage disease. Recent studies have reported that PTEN may be a powerful predictor of response to Herceptin in HER2 positive breast cancer.
