The present study investigated the possible involvement of nine candidate genes in NF1 tumours by assessing loss of heterozygosity, promoter hypermethylation, and expression in NF1-related tumours. The CDKN2A/p16INK4a , RB1, TP53</italic> and MGMT genes have previously been found to be altered in NF1 tumours, and this was confirmed in this study. However, new candidate genes were also found to be involved in NF1 MPNSTs and rare malignancies (RARB, MLH1 and RASSF1A).
