Colorectal Cancers Choosing Sides
source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta
authors: Albuquerque C, Bakker E R, van Veelen W, Smits Rsummary/abstract:
In contrast to the majority of sporadic colorectal cancer which predominantly occur in the distal colon, most mismatch repair deficient tumours arise at the proximal side. At present, these regional preferences have not been explained properly. Recently, we have screened colorectal tumours for mutations in Wnt-related genes focusing specifically on colorectal location. Combining this analysis with published data, we propose a mechanism underlying the side-related preferences of colorectal cancers, based on the specific acquired genetic defects in β-catenin signalling.organization: Instituto Português de Oncologia de Lisboa Francisco Gentil
