Tumor tissues were collected under IRB-approved protocols at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, between 1987 and 1999. The tumor samples consist of 17 seminomas, 15 pure EC, 15 pure T, 10 pure YS, 2 pure CC, and 42 NSGCT with mixed histologies. There were six patients who had each had two tumors per patient that were included in this study (designated with the same number but different letter- e.g. 155A and 155C are from same patient but represent two different tumors, one being the primary testicular lesion, the other being a liver metastasis). Five normal testis specimens (and one pooled sample consisting of equal amounts of the 5 normal testis specimens) from individual of similar ages were used as controls.
