Mutational analysis of the CTNNB1 (beta-catenin) gene in human endometrial cancer: frequent mutations at codon 34 that cause nuclear accumulation.
Recently, CTNNB1 (beta-catenin) has been found to function as an oncoprotein that works in the Wnt signaling pathway, and mutation of this gene has been reported in various human cancers. In thisExpand
