Inherited susceptibility to colorectal adenomas and carcinomas: evidence for a new predisposition gene on 15q14-q22.
BACKGROUND and AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of known colorectal adenoma and carcinoma susceptibility genes and to locate a novel susceptibility gene in an Ashkenazi family (SM1311) with dominantly inherited predisposition to colorectal adenomas and carcinomas. METHODS: Clinicopathologic and family history data were collected. Genetic linkage and mutational analyses were used to investigate the genetic basis of the family's disease. RESULTS: Affected members of SM1311 ...Expand abstract
