Cancer of the uterine cervix is still the leading cause of death among women with cancer in developing countries. Although infections with human papillomavirus are necessary, other molecular alterations that are needed at the cellular level for development of these tumors remain largely unknown. β-Catenin is a key regulator located within the Wnt signaling cascade whose alterations constitute an important event in colon carcinogenesis. In many malignancies increased levels of the β-catenin… CONTINUE READING
