The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases.

The adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) tumour-suppressor protein controls the Wnt signalling pathway by forming a complex with glycogen synthase kinase 3beta (GSK-3beta), axin/conductin and betacatenin. Complex formation induces the rapid degradation of betacatenin. In colon carcinoma cells, loss of APC leads to the accumulation of betacatenin in the nucleus, where it binds to and activates the Tcf-4 transcription factor (reviewed in [1] [2]). Here, we report the identification and genomic structure of APC homologues. Mammalian APC2, which closely resembles APC in overall domain structure, was functionally analyzed and shown to contain two SAMP domains, both of which are required for binding to conductin. Like APC, APC2 regulates the formation of active betacatenin-Tcf complexes, as demonstrated using transient transcriptional activation assays in APC -/- colon carcinoma cells. Human APC2 maps to chromosome 19p13.3. APC and APC2 may therefore have comparable functions in development and cancer.  (+info)

Expression of CD44 in Apc and Tcf mutant mice implies regulation by the WNT pathway. (2/796)

Overexpression of cell surface glycoproteins of the CD44 family is an early event in the colorectal adenoma-carcinoma sequence. This suggests a link with disruption of APC tumor suppressor protein-mediated regulation of beta-catenin/Tcf-4 signaling, which is crucial in initiating tumorigenesis. To explore this hypothesis, we analyzed CD44 expression in the intestinal mucosa of mice and humans with genetic defects in either APC or Tcf-4, leading to constitutive activation or blockade of the beta-catenin/Tcf-4 pathway, respectively. We show that CD44 expression in the non-neoplastic intestinal mucosa of Apc mutant mice is confined to the crypt epithelium but that CD44 is strongly overexpressed in adenomas as well as in invasive carcinomas. This overexpression includes the standard part of the CD44 (CD44s) as well as variant exons (CD44v). Interestingly, deregulated CD44 expression is already present in aberrant crypt foci with dysplasia (ACFs), the earliest detectable lesions of colorectal neoplasia. Like ACFs of Apc-mutant mice, ACFs of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) patients also overexpress CD44. In sharp contrast, Tcf-4 mutant mice show a complete absence of CD44 in the epithelium of the small intestine. This loss of CD44 concurs with loss of stem cell characteristics, shared with adenoma cells. Our results indicate that CD44 expression is part of a genetic program controlled by the beta-catenin/Tcf-4 signaling pathway and suggest a role for CD44 in the generation and turnover of epithelial cells.  (+info)

Analysis of masked mutations in familial adenomatous polyposis. (3/796)

Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an autosomal-dominant disease characterized by the development of hundreds of adenomatous polyps of the colorectum. Approximately 80% of FAP patients can be shown to have truncating mutations of the APC gene. To determine the cause of FAP in the other 20% of patients, MAMA (monoallelic mutation analysis) was used to independently examine the status of each of the two APC alleles. Seven of nine patients analyzed were found to have significantly reduced expression from one of their two alleles whereas two patients were found to have full-length expression from both alleles. We conclude that more than 95% of patients with FAP have inactivating mutations in APC and that a combination of MAMA and standard genetic tests will identify APC abnormalities in the vast majority of such patients. That no APC expression from the mutant allele is found in some FAP patients argues strongly against the requirement for dominant negative effects of APC mutations. The results also suggest that there may be at least one additional gene, besides APC, that can give rise to FAP.  (+info)

Administration of an unconjugated bile acid increases duodenal tumors in a murine model of familial adenomatous polyposis. (4/796)

Intestinal carcinogenesis involves the successive accumulation of multiple genetic defects until cellular transformation to an invasive phenotype occurs. This process is modulated by many epigenetic factors. Unconjugated bile acids are tumor promoters whose presence in intestinal tissues is regulated by dietary factors. We studied the role of the unconjugated bile acid, chenodeoxycholate, in an animal model of familial adenomatous polyposis. Mice susceptible to intestinal tumors as a result of a germline mutation in Apc (Min/+ mice) were given a 10 week dietary treatment with 0.5% chenodeoxycholate. Following this, the mice were examined to determine tumor number, enterocyte proliferation, apoptosis and beta-catenin expression. Intestinal tissue prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) levels were also assessed. Administration of chenodeoxycholate in the diet increased duodenal tumor number in Min/+ mice. Promotion of duodenal tumor formation was accompanied by increased beta-catenin expression in duodenal cells, as well as increased PGE2 in duodenal tissue. These data suggest that unconjugated bile acids contribute to periampullary tumor formation in the setting of an Apc mutation.  (+info)

Combined molecular and clinical approaches for the identification of families with familial adenomatous polyposis coli. (5/796)

OBJECTIVE: Using an interdisciplinary clinical and molecular approach, the authors identified APC germline mutations in families with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Correlation of mutation site with disease manifestation and the impact of molecular data on clinical proceedings were examined. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Germline mutations in the APC gene predispose to FAP. Established and proposed genotype-phenotype correlations as well as the influence of mutation site on surgical procedures have been reported. The predictive value of APC mutation analysis for disease manifestation and therapeutic decision making needs to be investigated further. METHODS: One hundred twenty-three kindreds of the local FAP registry were included in this study. CHRPE phenotype was defined as at least one large characteristic lesion or a total of four lesions in both eyes. APC mutations were identified by protein truncation test and automated DNA sequencing from patient lymphocyte DNA and RNA. RESULTS: APC germline mutations were identified in 85/123 families with FAP. They were located between codons 213 and 1581 of the APC gene and displayed distinct genotype-phenotype correlations. CHRPE status facilitated mutation analysis by discriminating regions of interest within the APC coding region. Severe manifestations of desmoids were restricted to mutations between codons 1444 through 1581. Whereas 91% (75/82) of at-risk persons were excluded as mutation carriers, APC germline mutations were detected before clinical examination in 9% (7/82) of at-risk persons. One patient agreed to endoscopy only after mutation detection. CONCLUSIONS: This study supports the feasibility of combined molecular and clinical screening of families with FAP and may provide a guideline for routine presymptomatic molecular diagnostics in a clinical laboratory.  (+info)

Hereditary desmoid disease in a family with a germline Alu I repeat mutation of the APC gene. (6/796)

Two families with autosomal dominantly inherited desmoid tumors have recently been shown to have germline mutations at the 3' end of the APC gene. We subsequently identified an Amish family with autosomal dominantly inherited desmoid tumors. Genetic analysis performed on one family member, a 47-year-old man with multiple desmoid tumors and no colon polyps, revealed a protein truncating mutation in the middle of the APC gene. The truncating mutation is the result of a 337-bp insertion of an Alu I sequence into codon 1526 of the APC gene. The presence of a poly(A) tail at the 3' end of the insertion suggests that the Alu I sequence was inserted by a retrotranspositional event. Germline insertions of Alu I sequences have occasionally been reported to cause other genetic diseases including type I neurofibromatosis, hereditary site-specific breast cancer (BRCA2), and hemophilia B. However, this is the first report of a germline mutation of the APC gene resulting from an Alu I insertion.  (+info)

Cost comparison of predictive genetic testing versus conventional clinical screening for familial adenomatous polyposis. (7/796)

BACKGROUND: Mutations of the APC gene cause familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), a hereditary colorectal cancer predisposition syndrome. AIMS: To conduct a cost comparison analysis of predictive genetic testing versus conventional clinical screening for individuals at risk of inheriting FAP, using the perspective of a third party payer. METHODS: All direct health care costs for both screening strategies were measured according to time and motion, and the expected costs evaluated using a decision analysis model. RESULTS: The baseline analysis predicted that screening a prototype FAP family would cost $4975/ pound3109 by molecular testing and $8031/ pound5019 by clinical screening strategy, when family members were monitored with the same frequency of clinical surveillance (every two to three years). Sensitivity analyses revealed that the genetic testing approach is cost saving for key variables including the kindred size, the age of screening onset, and the cost of mutation identification in a proband. However, if the APC mutation carriers were monitored at an increased (annual) frequency, the cost of the genetic screening strategy increased to $7483/ pound4677 and was especially sensitive to variability in age of onset of screening, family size, and cost of genetic testing of at risk relatives. CONCLUSIONS: In FAP kindreds, a predictive genetic testing strategy costs less than conventional clinical screening, provided that the frequency of surveillance is identical using either strategy. An additional significant benefit is the elimination of unnecessary colonic examinations for those family members found to be non-carriers.  (+info)

Dominant negative effect of the APC1309 mutation: a possible explanation for genotype-phenotype correlations in familial adenomatous polyposis. (8/796)

Inactivation of the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene product initiates colorectal tumorigenesis. Patients with familial APC (FAP) carry germ-line mutations in the APC gene and develop multiple colorectal adenomas and subsequent carcinomas early in life. The severity of the disease correlates with the position of the inherited APC mutation (genotype-phenotype correlation). Together with the fact that both germ-line and sporadic APC mutations cluster in the central region of the APC gene, this points to a dominant negative effect of certain APC mutants. Loss of APC function was recently shown to result in enhanced beta-catenin-/Tcf-mediated transcription in colon epithelial cells. Here, we provide experimental evidence for a dominant negative effect of APC gene products associated with severe polyposis. Wild-type APC activity in beta-catenin-/Tcf-mediated transcription was strongly inhibited by a mutant APC that is truncated at codon 1309. In contrast, mutant APC gene products that are associated with attenuated polyposis (codon 386 or 1465) interfered only weakly with wild-type APC activity. These results suggest a molecular explanation for the genotype-phenotype correlation in FAP patients and support the idea that colorectal tumor growth might be, in part, driven by selection for a mutation in the mutation cluster region.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is caused by germline mutation of the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene on chromosome 5q. AIMS: This study assessed genotype-phenotype correlations for extraintestinal lesions in FAP. METHODS: Mutations of the APC gene were compared with the occurrence of seven extraintestinal manifestations in 475 FAP patients from 51 families. The frequency of manifestations was adjusted for different ages of patients using person years of exposure. In pedigrees without identified APC gene mutation, analysis of linkage to chromosome 5q and/or assessment of neoplasms for replication errors characteristic of mutation in mismatch repair genes were performed. RESULTS: FAP patients from the 42 families (82%) with identified mutations of the APC gene had more frequent expression of extraintestinal manifestations than affected individuals without identified mutations (risk ratio 1.2-4.0; significant difference for cutaneous cysts). The presence of a cutaneous cyst ...
The root cause of FAP is understood to be a genetic mutation-a flaw in the bodys tumour suppressor genes that prevent development of tumours. The flaw allows numerous cells of the intestinal wall to develop into potentially cancerous polyps when they would usually reach the end of their life; inevitably one or more will eventually progress and give rise to cancer (7% risk by age 21, rising to 87% by age 45 and 93% by age 50). The flawed genes do not trigger cancer, but rather, they reduce the bodys ability to protect against the risk of aged cells becoming cancerous. Even with the flawed gene, it may still take time before a cell actually does develop that is cancerous as a result, and the gene may in some cases still partially operate to control tumours, therefore cancer from FAP takes many years to develop and is almost always an adult-onset disease. The second form of FAP, known as attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis has the APC gene functional but slightly impaired. It is therefore ...

An adenoma is a polyp made up of tissue that looks much like the normal lining of your colon, although it is different in several important ways when it is looked at under the microscope. The growth pattern is only important because it helps determine when you will need your next colonoscopy to make sure you dont develop colon cancer in the future. Cell overgrowth resulting from mutations in the APC gene leads to the adenomatous polyps of the colon colon polyps seen in familial adenomatous polyposis. There are 2 major growth patterns: tubular and villous. In addition to this, a stroboscope (flashing light) may be used to observe the movement of the vocal folds during speech. Adenomas with a villous growth pattern are also more likely to have cancers develop in them. Erratum in: Gastroenterology. Some people have a variant of the disorder, called attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis, in which polyp growth is delayed. Larger adenomas more often have cancers developing in them. The average ...
Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a genetic condition that causes growths of tissue (polyps) to develop in the large intestine (colon) and rectum. If these polyps are not removed, the polyps will become cancerous with time. There are three forms of FAP: classic, attenuated (milder), and autosomal recessive FAP. In the classic form, a person can have thousands of polyps and usually develops colon cancer in their 30s. In attenuated FAP, colon cancer usually does not develop until a person is in their 50s. In autosomal recessive FAP, a person usually develops less than 100 polyps. In addition to polyps and colon cancer, FAP can also cause noncancerous growths in the intestines (desmoid tumors) as well as cancerous and noncancerous growths in other parts of the body, including part of the small intestine (duodenum), stomach, bones, and skin.. Both classic and attenuated FAP are caused by a change (mutation) in the APC gene, while autosomal recessive FAP is caused by mutations in the MUTYH ...

The need for expedited development of effective cancer therapies is critical. At current rates, ∼8 million Americans will die from cancer during the estimated time it will take for a lead compound to be developed into a FDA-approved drug. An arguably faster path to development is to reposition established drugs as anticancer agents. Successful examples of this approach include cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors, which are FDA-approved anti-inflammatory drugs that are approved for cancer chemoprevention in familial adenomatous polyposis patients, and lenalidomide, an analogue of thalidomide, which was originally marketed for morning sickness that is now approved for therapy of myelodysplastic syndromes (24). Other approved drugs that are currently under investigation as anticancer agents include the oral hypoglycemic rosiglitazone, the immunosuppressant rapamycin, and the birth control hormone medroxyprogesterone acetate. Collectively, these examples illustrate how repositioning of existing drugs ...
This will be a single-center, phase-II, six-month-long, placebo-controlled, double blinded, randomized trial of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor, erlotinib (Tarceva) and the cyclooxygenase (COX-2) inhibitor, sulindac in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or attenuated FAP. FAP is an autosomal dominant inherited colon cancer predisposition with a 100% risk of colon cancer in the absence of preventive care (endoscopy and surgery). Efficacious chemoprevention for duodenal adenomas is an unmet clinical need in FAP patients that would reduce the morbidity from duodenectomy and risk of duodenal adenocarcinoma. Currently the only Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved chemopreventive agent is celecoxib which results in a modest reduction of duodenal and colorectal polyps and is associated with cardiac toxicity at effective doses. If it can be shown that combinatorial inhibition of COX-2 and EGFR activity leads to successful regression in duodenal adenomatous ...
Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC), a dominantly inherited disorder, has been mapped to chromosome 5q15-q21 by family linkage studies. Cells from patients with deletions in this region, in one case associated with polyposis in a family, have been used to construct human hamster hybrid cell lines that retain either the normal or deleted chromosome 5. These lines have been used to identify markers from the region of the polyposis gene obtained by cloning the ends of 0.5- to 2-megabase BssHII fragments purified by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. Three markers are described that map within the deletions and must therefore be close to the APC gene.
There is growing evidence to support the idea that accumulated genetic changes in important genes, occurring in vulnerable cells, ultimately leads to the development of neoplasia. This process is well illustrated by colorectal cancer in which there is progressive accumulation of mutations during the gradual transition from normal mucosa to carcinoma.1,2 One of the earliest mutations in colonic carcinogenesis occurs at the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene.3 Hyperproliferation is believed to develop in preneoplastic epithelium, implying that an APC mutation is involved in the process. None the less, a recent study of preneoplastic intestine of human familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and multiple intestinal neoplasia (MIN) mice which harbour the APC mutations has shown that the major abnormality is elevated rates of crypt fission, a process that begins by basal bifurcation and is followed by longitudinal division of the crypt.4,5 In the same study, direct observations of three dimensional ...

Background: Colectomy and ileorectal anastomosis (IRA) or restorative proctocolectomy are performed for prophylaxis in familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). After IRA patients may require secondary proctectomy for worsening polyposis or rectal cancer. Outcomes after IRA were evaluated and risk factors predictive of progressive rectal disease identified. Methods: Parametric survival analysis was used to identify predictors of progressive rectal disease in all patients undergoing an IRA for FAP at a single centre. Hazard ratios (HRs) were calculated for phenotype, genotype, sex, age at surgery and presence of colonic cancer. Results: Of 427 patients who underwent IRA, 48 (11.2 per cent) developed rectal cancer and 77 (18.0 per cent) required proctectomy for worsening polyposis over a median follow-up of 15 (range 7-25) years. By the age of 60 years half of the patients retained their rectum. Rectal polyp count exceeding 20 (HR 30.99, 95 per cent confidence interval 9.57 to 100.32; P , 0.001), APC ...

Normally, every cell has 2 copies of each gene: 1 inherited from the mother and 1 inherited from the father. FAP with an APC gene mutation or alteration that is known to disrupt gene function follows an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern. In autosomal dominant inheritance, this alternation in only 1 copy of the gene is sufficient to develop the condition. This means that a parent with this alteration may pass along a copy of their normal gene or a copy of the gene with the disruptive change. Therefore, a child who has a parent with this change has a 50% chance of inheriting the same disruptive gene change. A brother, sister, or parent of a person who has this alteration also has a 50% chance of having the same disruptive gene change. However, if the parents test negative for the genetic alteration (meaning each persons test results found no disruptive gene change), the risk to the siblings significantly decreases but their risk may still be higher than an average risk.. Options exist for ...
Germline mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene are responsible for familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). In addition, approximately 80% of all sporadic colorectal tumours have mutations in APC (Polakis, 1997). Consistent with Knudsons `two-hit hypothesis, tumour cells from FAP patients and sporadic cases harbour mutations in both APC alleles, indicating that APC is a classic tumour suppressor. The tumour suppressor function of APC is now well established (Bienz and Clevers, 2000; van Es et al., 2001). In the absence of Wnt signals, APC facilitates phosphorylation of β-catenin by GSK3β, thus targeting β-catenin for ubiquitin-mediated degradation. Following activation of the Wnt pathway, APC/GSK3β-mediated phosphorylation of β-catenin is down regulated allowing β-catenin to accumulate, which in turn results in transcriptional activation of a number of proliferative genes (Fearnhead et al., 2001; van Es et al., 2001). Upon loss of APC function, β-catenin accumulates in the ...

Several lines of evidence support the role of COX-2-dependent PGE2 in colon tumorigenesis (Wang and Dubois, 2010). Thus, in FAP, the administration of the selective COX-2 inhibitor celecoxib (400 mg/b.i.d.) was associated with a significant reduction of the number of colorectal polyps by approximately one-third (Steinbach et al., 2000). However, marked variability in the response to celecoxib was noted (Steinbach et al., 2000). We hypothesized that the inhibition of vascular COX-2-dependent PGI2 may contribute to the variable response to celecoxib in this setting. In fact, PGI2 may control angiogenesis by preventing endothelial activation and platelet release of angiogenic factors present in α-granules (Menter et al., 1987). Thus, we performed the present study to investigate the biosynthesis of PGI2 and TXA2, two key mediators of CV homeostasis (Grosser et al., 2006), and PGE2, a well known mediator of inflammation and tumorigenesis (Wang and Dubois, 2010) in intestinal neoplasia. We aimed to ...
Slide 91 [WebScope] [ImageScope]. Colonic Adenomas in Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and Colonic Carcinoma. In both of these slides, there is neoplastic epithelium that lines tubular structures. First, check the normal crypt epithelium to see what it looks like. It has many goblet cells alternating with squeezed columnar cells, and the nuclei of both cell types are small, uniform, and located at the base of the cells. In contrast, the neoplastic epithelium is different. In Slide 90, from a patient with familial adenomatous polyposis, there are many adenomas of different sizes within the mucosa. In the adenomas, the epithelium tends to be more uniform than in the carcinoma, but both types of epithelium have neoplastic (dysplastic) features. The nuclei are crowded, hyperchromatic, stratified, and take up a greater portion of the cell than they do in normal colonic epithelium. Since there is plenty of normal mucosa for comparison, these differences should be readily apparent. Notice also that ...

The assisted conception unit at University College Hospital is the United Kingdoms first clinic to be granted a licence to perform pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) to select embryos that are free of the genetic mutation that leads to familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP).. Four couples affected by the condition, and who have a 50% chance of passing the mutated gene to a child, will start treatment for the procedure at the end of the year.. Until now, the only reproductive option for families carrying the FAP gene has been for the fetus to be tested for the condition during pregnancy, with the option of termination if it is found to have inherited the condition.. Familial adenomatous polyposis affects between 1 in 26 000 and 1 in 44 000 people in the United Kingdom. It leads to multiple rectal and colon cancers in early adulthood for almost all of those affected by the condition.. Most opt to have prophylactic surgery to remove the colon, usually in their teens.. The new licence is the ...
Cribriform-Morular Variant (C-MV) of PTC is a rare morphologic entity. It was first described by Harach et al. [1] in association with FAP as a distinctive tumor. A total of 44 cases have been documented so far (See Table 1). We describe three cases, in two of which the patients have FAP. Case 2 was lost to follow-up.. Two cases were women in their 30s and the third was a 14 year old. The lesions ranged from 1.5 to 2 cm and were associated with several satellite nodules. There was no lymph node metastasis, capsular or vascular invasion. Our cases are similar to that described by Cameselle-Teijeiro et al. [2] who first proposed the term and did a study on nine cases. All the cases were seen in women between ages of 16-30 years (mean: 21.3). The lesions were predominantly solitary and ranged from 1.5-5.6 cm. All except one showed vascular invasion. Two cases also showed lymph node metastasis. In that study, immunohistochemical stains were positive for thyroglobulin, epithelial membrane antigen, ...

Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is caused by pathogenic variants in the APC gene resulting in the development of hundreds to thousands of adenomatous colonic polyps beginning in early adolescence. The lifetime risk for cancer in individuals with FAP is 100 percent. Additional symptoms may include dental anomalies, polyps of the gastric fundus and duodenum, and congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (CHRPE). Pathogenic APC variants may also cause other related syndromes, including attenuated FAP (AFAP), gastric adenocarcinoma and proximal polyposis of the stomach (GAPPS), Gardner syndrome, and Turcot syndrome.. MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP), caused by biallelic pathogenic variants in the MUTYH gene, can result in the development of colon polyps that are less numerous (typically 10-100) and is often diagnosed later in life. Genetic testing may be used to assess individuals at risk for FAP, other APC-associated polyposis, or MAP due to a suggestive personal or family ...
The nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug sulindac can reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal adenomas in the Min mouse model of familial adenomatous polyposis (10) . This effect is associated with an increase in apoptosis in the luminal portion of the crypt-villus of Min mice, a reduction in mucosal cyclooxygenase-2 protein levels, and a reduction in prostaglandin E2 levels in normal-appearing small bowel mucosa (10) . In patients with FAP, treatment with sulindac can induce the regression of polyps, although disease progression resumes when treatment is discontinued (8) . These effects have been attributed to the ability of the sulfide metabolite of sulindac to inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 (10) . APCΔ23 knockout mice are a murine model of FAP in which a truncating mutation of the APC gene results in gastrointestinal polyp formation (23) . In APCΔ23 mice in whom COX-2 has also been knocked-out, the rate of adenoma formation is greatly attenuated, further suggesting that COX-2 is important to the ...

Adenomatous Polyposis Coli Protein: A negative regulator of beta-catenin signaling which is mutant in ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS COLI and GARDNER SYNDROME.
A small study suggests that serrated adenoma may be a form of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and not a separate type of colorectal cancer.. Three serrated adenomas were found separately in three out of 11 Japanese patients from three families with FAP. Colorectal polyps numbered ,100 in each of the three, and all serrated adenomas were found in the rectum. All three patients with serrated adenomas had mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene-two proximal to the site of the gene, at codon 161, 332 and the third at the most distal site, codon 1556. Mutations in the other patients were located between codons 554 and 1324.. The rate of occurrence of serrated adenoma in the study was 30 times that in the general population so APC mutation may influence pathogenesis of serrated adenoma. The genetic results are compatible with a recent report describing colonic polyposis of ,100 polyps as attenuated FAP, so serrated adenoma may actually be a phenotype of FAP.. All 11 patients had a ...
Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) also known as deleted in polyposis 2.5 (DP2.5) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the APC gene. The APC protein is a negative regulator that controls beta-catenin concentrations and interacts with E-cadherin, which are involved in cell adhesion. Mutations in the APC gene may result in colorectal cancer. APC is classified as a tumor suppressor gene. Tumor suppressor genes prevent the uncontrolled growth of cells that may result in cancerous tumors. The protein made by the APC gene plays a critical role in several cellular processes that determine whether a cell may develop into a tumor. The APC protein helps control how often a cell divides, how it attaches to other cells within a tissue, how the cell polarizes and the morphogenesis of the 3D structures, or whether a cell moves within or away from a tissue. This protein also helps ensure that the chromosome number in cells produced through cell division is correct. The APC protein accomplishes these tasks ...

N2 - Juvenile polyposis syndrome (JPS; Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man2 174900) is a rare Mendelian disorder in which individuals have typical hamartomatous polyps within the gastrointestinal tract. The stromal element of the polyps has classically been thought to be the proliferative component, although epithelial malignancies (largely gastrointestinal cancers) occur more frequently than expected in JPS patients. Germ-line mutations in SMAD4 (DPC4) account for about a third of JPS cases. It has been postulated that the ...
A unique feature of colon cancer is that truncation mutations in the APC (adenomatous polyposis coli) gene are common to most tumours. The high penetrance of APC mutations, especially in gut epithelium, supports the idea that APC may be involved in a number of the processes that govern the normal maintenance of this tissue: differentiation, migration, proliferation and apoptosis. Indeed, APC is involved in the regulation of β-catenin and it also is an important regulator of the cytoskeleton. Thus mutations in APC lead to the accumulation of β-catenin, which causes changes in differentiation, and they also produce changes in cytoskeletal organization, which results in altered cell migration and disrupted mitotic spindles. The function of APC in cytoskeletal organization is related to its effect on microtubules and F-actin. Depleting APC from cultured cells leads to changes in cytoskeletal organization. In addition, N-terminal fragments of APC, like those commonly found in tumours, compromise ...

There are a number of inherited predispositions to colorectal cancer (CRC) which can be broadly categorized into two groups; those with associated polyposis, such as familial adenomatous polyposis and the hamartomatous polyposis syndromes; and those that are linked to the non-polyposis syndromes, such as hereditary non polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). The genetic basis of both the polyposis and non-polyposis syndromes are reflected in the CRC population who have no apparent family history of disease. Approximately 80% of all cases of CRC are associated with chromosomal instability [1] and are likely to have mutations in the Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) gene whereas the remaining 20% with microsatellite instability appears to be due primarily to epigenetic inactivation of the DNA mismatch repair (MMR) gene MLH1 [2 ...
Mismatch repair cancer syndrome (MMRCS) is a cancer syndrome associated with biallelic DNA mismatch repair mutations. It is also known as Turcot syndrome (after Jacques Turcot, who described the condition in 1959) and by several other names. In MMRCS, neoplasia typically occurs in both the gut and the central nervous system (CNS). In the large intestine, familial adenomatous polyposis occurs; in the CNS, brain tumors. Under the name constitutional mismatch repair-deficiency, (CMMR-D), it has been mapped to MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 or PMS2. Although these are the same genes mutated in the condition known as Lynch syndrome or hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer, the mutations are biallelic in CMMR-D. The term childhood cancer syndrome has also been proposed.Café-au-lait macules have been observed. Familial adenomatous polyposis + malignant central nervous system tumor.

A look at the following clinical trial: Collecting Information From Patients and Family Members With Hereditary Colorectal Cancer or Polyposis Syndrome or Who Are at High Risk of Developing Hereditary Colorectal Cancer
The results of our analysis suggest that pancreaticoduodenectomy at stage IV duodenal polyposis in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis is an effective and cost-effective management strategy compared with pancreaticoduodenectomy at cancer diagnosis or stage III polyposis. Once stage IV polyposis has been diagnosed, pancreaticoduodenectomy mortality and morbidity is substantially less than the mortality and morbidity from future cancers. Surgery at stage IV would prevent ,90% of duodenal cancers. By decreasing the length of time spent in stage IV, which has frequent endoscopies, the average total number of endoscopies would decrease by almost five per person. The cost savings from performing fewer endoscopies and reducing the number of cancers would partially offset the increase in surgical costs. Although the number of individuals affected by duodenal polyposis is small in absolute terms, the results from the model highlight the large increase in life expectancy at very low marginal cost ...

Background: Pouchitis after total rectocolectomy is among the most common complications of patients with ulcerative colitis (UC). However, its frequency is quite rare in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). We evaluated the inflammatory and pro-apoptotic activity in endoscopically normal mucosa of the ileal pouch in patients with UC and FAP. Methods: Twenty patients (10 with UC and 10 with FAP) with J pouch after total proctocolectomy were studied as were 10 normal controls. Biopsies were obtained from the mucosa of the pouch of UC and FAP patients and from the normal ileum of controls. The expression levels of TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8 and phospho-BAD were determined by immunoblotting. Activated NFκB was evaluated by immuno-precipitation and immunoblotting for IkappaB kinase beta. Results: Patients with UC had higher levels of IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8 and TNF-α than patients with FAP. The level of TNF-α was higher in patients with UC than in patients with FAP; both patient groups ...
Beginning at Leu 1029, the APC‐rA peptide adopts a conformation strikingly different from that of XTcf3 or E‐cadherin (Figure 3B). The C‐terminal half of the peptide, from Leu1029 to Glu1034, bulges out of the β‐catenin groove, away from the paths of XTcf3 and E‐cadherin (Figures 2B and 3B). This difference in conformation is probably due to the presence of a lysine residue at amino acid 1030 of APC‐rA. In XTcf3 and E‐cadherin this position is occupied by an acidic residue (Glu24 of XTcf3, Glu682 of E‐cadherin), which forms a salt bridge with β‐catenin Lys312 to form the second charged button of the extended region (Figure 3B). The lysine at this position in APC‐rA probably causes charge repulsion with β‐catenin Lys312, leading to a deviation from the conformations of the other two ligands. The conformation of the backbone at Lys1030 suggests that the side chain of this residue is in the vicinity of β‐catenin Glu462 and several other acidic residues. Although APC‐rA ...

Background More than 80% of intestinal neoplasia is associated with the (mice. NOTCH1 pro-survival signaling and DCLK1 in HT29 and DLD1 colon cancer cells in vitro reduced the tumor cells ability to self-renew and survive. Summary Our results indicate that Dclk1 is essential in improving intestinal tumorigenesis. Knocking down Dclk1 decreases tumor stemness and progression and is therefore predicted to regulate pro-survival signaling and tumor cell pluripotency. This study provides BIRB-796 a strong rationale to target Dclk1 as a treatment strategy for colorectal malignancy.

The results of this study show that pharmacologic inhibition of VEGFR and EGFR tyrosine kinase activity with ZD6474 reduces macropolyp number, size, and burden in the small bowel in the ApcMin/+ mouse model of familial adenomatous polyposis. Micropolyps, the putative precursors to macropolyps, were also decreased in number and size by ZD6474 treatment. Qualitatively similar results were obtained when ZD6474 was given as once-daily oral administration for 28 days to 6-week-old mice (early intervention) or 10-week-old mice (late intervention). In the early intervention study, ZD6474 also significantly inhibited polyp number in the colon, a finding that is notable given the initial low polyp count in the colon.. The ApcMin/+ mouse is one of several animal models of human gastrointestinal cancer, and it is a widely used model for the study of various factors on the early stages of intestinal cancer (8, 36). From the age of 6 weeks, ApcMin/+ mice have macroscopically detectable adenomas (5). ...
It is widely accepted that tumors are monoclonal in origin, arising from a mutation or series of mutations in a single cell and its descendants. The clonal origin of colonic adenomas and uninvolved intestinal mucosa from an XO/XY mosaic individual with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) was examined directly by in situ hybridization with Y chromosome probes. In this patient, the crypts of the small and large intestine were clonal, but at least 76 percent of the microadenomas were polyclonal in origin.

In 2008 we started to explore curcumin to control the colonic polyp in our 14 year old sons Familial Adenomatous Polyposis in our desire to delay surgery for as long as possible. Our first hope was for him to reach age 18 to allow him to make his own decision regarding medical intervention which gave him time to study for his GCSE exams without interruption from surgery and following recovery.. Back in 2008, as a minor at age 14, understandably there was pressure from the medical department for immediate surgery to take place. A polyp count of 150 plus would have him at risk as the FAP polyps can escalate in an unpredictable manner, therefore we went about to present to the NHS evidence based research papers of curcumin safety in humans, along with other studies which showed curcumin having a positive effect upon the biological pathways that will slow down polyp development. With the Oxford genetic department, satisfied safety was evident and they agreed to support a 9 month trial period of ...

The team undertook a prospective, multicenter, general population-based study.. The research team assessed 353 patients with colorectal cancer attended in 10 Spanish hospitals during a 1-year period.. Patients with familial adenomatous polyposis or inflammatory bowel disease were excluded.. All patients were monitored by colonoscopy within 2 years of the diagnosis.. The researchers evaluated demographic, clinical, pathologic, microsatellite instability status and immunohistochemistry for MSH2 and MLH1.. In addition, familial characteristics were analyzed.. At 2 years of follow-up, colonoscopy revealed the presence of adenomas in 25% of patients, and colorectal cancer in 4% of patients.. Univariate analysis demonstrated that development of metachronous neoplasm was associated with personal history of previous colorectal cancer. The team noted that metachronous neoplasm was also associated with the presence of previous or synchronous adenomas.. Although nonstatistical significance was achieved, ...

The payments were triggered by recent positive results from a planned interim futility analysis of CPPs pivotal Phase 3 trial, CPP FAP-310, evaluating CPP-1X/sul for adults with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). An Independent Data Monitoring Committee recently recommended continuation of the Phase 3 trial, which is fully enrolled and expected to be completed in 2018 unless there are extensions. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA) both granted CPP-1X/sul orphan drug status for treatment of FAP.. We continue to be pleased with the clinical progress of CPP-1X/sul to address a disease for which patients have no effective therapies, said Jeff Jacob, Chair and CEO of CPP. The additional resources and support from Sucampo will help speed our FAP-310 clinical trial to completion and can offer new hope for treating this unmet medical need..

EB1 was identified by its ability to interact with APC, a tumor suppressor protein that has been shown to associate with microtubules and promote microtubule assembly in vitro (15). We have examined the subcellular distribution of EB1 by indirect immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy, using mAbs specific for EB1. Our results indicate that EB1 decorates the centrosome and the microtubule cytoskeleton throughout the cell cycle.. Previous studies performed on RKO, a human colorectal cancer cell line, and the mouse fibroblast cell line NIH 3T3 have shown that overexpressed full-length, but not truncated, APC associated to microtubules (11). We analyzed the subcellular distribution of EB1 in SW480, a colon cancer cell line that expresses a carboxyl-terminal deleted form of APC that is unable to interact with either EB1 or microtubules; in these cells EB1 localization to microtubules and the centrosome was preserved (Fig. 1d), demonstrating that the cellular distribution of EB1 does not depend on ...
APC coding exons 1-15 and well into the 5 and 3 ends of all the introns and untranslated regions are analyzed by sequencing. Gross deletion/duplication analysis determines gene copy number for coding exons 1-15. Additionally, all promoter 1B gross deletions as well as single nucleotide substitutions within the promoter 1B YY1 binding motif are analyzed and reported. Clinically significant intronic findings beyond 5 base pairs are always reported. Intronic variants of unknown or unlikely clinical significance are not reported beyond 5 base pairs from the splice junction. Genomic deoxyribonucleic acid (gDNA) is isolated from the patients specimen using standardized methodology and quantified. Sequence enrichment of the targeted coding exons and adjacent intronic nucleotides is carried out by a bait-capture methodology, using long biotinylated oligonucleotide probes followed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and next generation sequencing (NGS).

The (Adenomatous Polyposis Coli) APC protein normally builds a destruction complex with glycogen synthase kinase 3-alpha and or beta (GSK-3α/β) and axin via interactions with the 20 AA and SAMP repeats[citation needed]. This complex is then able to bind β-catenins in the cytoplasm, that have dissociated from adherens contacts between cells. With the help of casein kinase 1 (CK1), which carries out an initial phosphorylation of β-catenin, GSK-3β is able to phosphorylate β-catenin a second time. This targets β-catenin for ubiquitination and degradation by cellular proteasomes. This prevents it from translocating into the nucleus, where it acts as a transcription factor for proliferation genes. APC is also thought to be targeted to microtubules via the PDZ binding domain, stabilizing them[citation needed]. The deactivation of the APC protein can take place after certain chain reactions in the cytoplasm are started, e.g. through the Wnt signals that destroy the conformation of the ...

Background Colorectal carcinoma is a common cause of cancer. a new cell line from ascitic efussion of a colon cancer patient who did not respond Dock4 to 5-fluorouracil or irinotecan. HGUE-C-1 cells did not show microsatellite instability and did not harbour mutations in or and genes which are quite commonly mutated in colon carcinoma and have been related to colon carcinogenesis [17-19]. Further analysis with the dinucleotide polymorphic repeat marker D5S346 showed loss of heterozygosity affecting the Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) made up of region in chromosome five and nuclear staining of β-catenin protein suggesting that this APC signalling pathway was modified in HGUE-C-1 cells. HGUE-C-1 cells are also interesting as an experimental model for the study of chemoresistance in patients with colon cancer. In this sense HGUE-C-1 cells show resistance to 5-FU and irinotecan. This cell line constitutes a better physiological model for chemoresistance studies in comparison with other cell lines ...
A key role for eicosanoid biosynthetic pathways in human cancer development is supported by numerous reports in the literature (Dannenberg and Zakim, 1999; Marks et al., 1999). Clearly, induction of COX-2 and cPLA2 is observed in colonic polyps and carcinomas (Kargman et al., 1995). Moreover, chronic NSAID intake reduces colon cancer incidence in animal models and humans. Colon cancer incidence in the setting of adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) deficiency is markedly reduced in COX-2 deficient (Oshima et al., 1996), and cPLA2-deficient mice (Takaku et al., 2000), and overexpression of COX-2 has been shown to be sufficient for induction of mammary tumors (Liu et al., 2001). We have previously reported enhanced PGE2 production in NSCLC cell lines that correlated with the expression of oncogenic Ras mutations (Heasley et al., 1997). This was mediated through increased expression of cPLA2 and COX-2 proteins. The induction of COX-2 has also been verified in primary human lung cancer specimens (Hida ...
Most colorectal cancers are initiated by inactivating mutations of Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC). APC downregulates b-catenin, a key Wnt signaling effector that operates transcriptional switches to control numerous cell fates during animal development, and homeostasis in adult tissues. These switches are mediated by the Wnt enhanceosome, a multiprotein complex associated with transcriptional enhancers of Wnt-responsive genes, whose BCL9/B9L scaffold protein captures activated b-catenin by direct binding 1,2. Deletion of murine Bcl9 or B9l causes embryonic lethality, but conditional inactivation of both paralogs in the intestinal epithelium (Bcl9/B9l DKO) is well tolerated, without causing obvious defects 3. Remarkably, Bcl9/B9l DKO essentially eliminates tumorigenesis in Apc1322T mutant mice 4 whose Apc truncation mimics the most prevalent APC truncations in human colon cancers, and restores a normal life span in these mice. The disease-free life of mice bearing a shorter Apc truncation ...
APC mutations lead to loss of β-catenin regulation, altered cell migration and chromosome instability. They have been implicated in colon, lung and esophageal cancers.
