Acute overexpression of Myc in intestinal epithelium recapitulates some but not all the changes elicited by Wnt/beta-catenin pathway activation.


The Myc transcription factor is a potent inducer of proliferation and is required for Wnt/beta-catenin signaling in intestinal epithelium. Since deregulation of the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway is a prerequisite for nonhereditary intestinal tumorigenesis, we asked whether activation of Myc recapitulates the tumorigenic changes that are driven by constitutive… (More)
