Purpose: The repressor element 1 (RE-1) silencing transcription factor (REST) is a transcription factor which represses the expression of neuronal differentiation-related genes including SYN1 gene. CoREST, encoded by RCOR1 gene, binds to the REST protein for remodeling of chromatin structure. Although there is a relation among REST, RCOR1, and SYN1 genes, the role of these genes in glioma tumors is still unclear. In this study, expressions of REST, RCOR1, and SYN1 genes were detected in primary cultures derived from tumor samples of diffuse astrocytoma (DA), anaplastic oligodendroglioma (AO), and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cases.
