Hyper-Elongation in Colorectal Cancer Tissue - Cerotic Acid is a Potential Novel Serum Metabolic Marker of Colorectal Malignancies.

Abstract

BACKGROUNDS/AIMS Colorectal cancer (CRC) cells show some alterations of lipid metabolism. Elongation of fatty acids (FA) has not been studied in CRC tissues thus far. The aim of this study was to verify if CRC specimens and normal colon mucosa differ in terms of their levels of very long-chain FAs, a product of FA elongation. Moreover, the expression of… (More)
