Increased level of mitochondrial gene expression in polyps of familial polyposis coli patients.


To elucidate the mechanism of polyp formation in familial polyposis coli patients, cDNA clones, expressed differently between normal colonic mucosae and polyps, were screened. Three polyp-derived cDNA clones showed increased levels of transcription under neoplastic conditions. Among them, clone P6 was determined to be derived from the mtDNA encoding parts… (More)
