The Tensin gene family encodes proteins thought to modulate integrin function. C-terminal Tensin-like (CTEN) is a member of the Tensin gene family which lacks the N-terminus actin-binding domain. Cten is reported to have both oncogenic and tumour-suppressor functions. We investigated the role that Cten may play in colorectal cancer (CRC). By quantitative RT-PCR CTEN is up-regulated (i.e. > two-fold increase) in 62% of cell lines and 69% of tumours compared with normal mucosa, consistent wi...Expand abstract

C-terminal Tensin-like (CTEN) is an oncogene which alters cell motility possibly through repression of E-cadherin in colorectal cancer.
