PAX-2 is a homeogene strongly expressed during kidney development. PAX-2 gene is expressed in the metanephric mesenchyma after ureter bud induction and is a key factor for the mesenchyma-epithelium conversion. Animals transgenic for PAX-2 have severe renal abnormalities and cysts but no solid tumoral features. The oncogenic potential of the PAX gene family has been reported in vitro with transformation of cell cultures and in vivo with cell injections in nude mice. Gnarra et al. showed PAX-2 expression in renal carcinoma cell lines and underlined its potential role in cell proliferation in these lines.1 Mazal et al. demonstrated PAX-2 nuclear expression in 88% of clear cell renal cell carcinomas as well as 18% of papillary renal cell carcinoma, and 13% of chromophobe renal cell carcinomas.2 More recently, Chivukula et al. demonstrated utility in distinguishing ovarian serous papillary carcinoma (anti-PAX-2 positive) from breast carcinoma (anti-PAX-2 negative).3
