CDC4/FBXW7 and the 'just enough' model of tumourigenesis.

Abstract:

There is good evidence to show that cancer-causing mutations are not always simple gain- and loss-of-function changes. One example is the APC gene, where the combination of mutations produces a 'just-right' level of Wnt signalling. A recent article by Berger and colleagues posited a 'continuum model' in which increasing or decreasing gene expression of function was linearly associated with tumourigenesis. Berger also proposed an 'obligate haploinsufficiency' or 'fail-safe' model, whereby hete...
