We analyzed DNAs from 35 gliomas (27 malignant, grades III and IV; 8 less malignant, grades I and II) for loss of heterozygosity (LOH) using microsatellite sequences on chromosome 10 as polymorphic markers. An LOH was found in 8 of 11 (73%) glioblastomas (grade IV) and 4 of 16 (25%) grade III gliomas, but not in the less malignant types. We detected three commonly deleted regions. One was located in a telomeric region of 10p and the others were relatively large regions of 10q. Our results suggested that three putative tumor suppressor genes on chromosome 10 are involved in the malignant progression of gliomas.
