Mendelian tumour syndromes are caused by rare mutations, which usually lead to protein inactivation. Few studies have determined whether or not the same genes harbour other, more common variants, which might have a lower penetrance and/or cause mild disease, perhaps indistinguishable from sporadic disease and accounting for a considerable proportion of the unexplained inherited risk of tumours in the general population. Germline variants at the APC locus are excellent candidates for explainin...Expand abstract
