    Background Intestinal polyps may further develop into colon cancer; the pathogenesis is not clear. The p53 gene is an important anti-cancer gene in the body, which is suppressed in cancer. The ubiquitin E3 ligase A20 (A20) plays a role in regulating the activities of epithelial cells. This study...

    Hyperplastic polyposis syndrome (HPS) is a rare condition characterized by the presence of numerous hyperplastic polyps (HPs) in the colon and rectum. Patients with HPS have an increased risk of colorectal cancer. This link is associated with gene mutations, especially B type Raf kinase (BRAF)....
