1994) investigated 16 kindreds with familial glioma for evidence for germline mutations in exons 5–9 of the TP53 gene and exon 24 of the NF1 gene. No mutations were identiﬁed. A study from the Mayo Clinic of 15 brain cancer patients who had a family history of brain tumours found that one had a germline TP53 mutation, and another had a germline hemizygous deletion of the CDKN2A/ARF region (see below). , 2000). , 2000). , 2001).
