Mutational analysis of CASP10 gene in colon, breast, lung and hepatocellular carcinomas.

Abstract

AIMS Evasion of apoptosis is a feature of cancer cells. As a mechanism of apoptosis inactivation in cancer cells, somatic mutations of pro-apoptotic genes have been reported in many cancers. Caspase-10 is an initiation-phase caspase, and somatic mutation of CASP10 that encodes caspase-10 has been found in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and gastric carcinoma… (More)
