The mice also demonstrate hyper25 gammaglobulinemia, B-cell hyperplasia, and splenomegaly, further suggesting an immunologic role for the Fli-1 protein during development. 3. N-myc N-myc, a member of the myc family of proto-oncogenes, was originally described as an amplified gene in neuroblastoma. It is expressed in restricted temporal and spatial patterns during normal development, primarily in actively proliferating undifferentiated cells. Expression has been described in postmitotic yet undifferentiated cells and generally not in differentiated cells, so it is believed that N-myc expression during development may be a marker of an undifferentiated state rather than a marker of proliferation [150].
