resides on chromosome 1p32, its locus was analyzed for loss of heterozygosity in meningioma and excluded as a candidate meningioma gene . Interestingly, the loss of tissue non-specific alkaline phosphatase protein encoded by gene that maps to 1p36.1-p34 was demonstrated in areas of meningioma with monosomy 1p, suggesting its possible role as a candidate tumor suppressor gene in meningiomas . Further genetic research is likely to result in the discovery of novel meningioma-related tumor suppressor gene(s) residing on chromosome 1p and other chromosomes implicated in meningioma tumorigenesis.
