The article explores the evidence of the development of advanced serrated polyps. It has been found that it is a genetic trait with implications for colorectal cancer and prevention in the wider population. One of the most important seeds for this change has been the recognition of a serrated polyp pathway-type colorectal tumorigenesis associated with somatic BRAF mutation and widespread gene promoter hypermethylation as an alternative to the adenoma-carcinoma sequence.

    Sei1 is a positive regulator of proliferation that promotes the assembly of Cdk4-cyclin D complexes and enhances the transcriptional activity of E2f1. The potential oncogenic role of Sei1 is further suggested by its overexpression in various types of human cancers. To study the role of Sei1, we...

However, his...
