DNA repair defects in colon cancer


Jiricny, J; Marra, G (2003). DNA repair defects in colon cancer. Current Opinion in Genetics & Development, 13(1):61-69.

Abstract

Defects in DNA-repair pathways lead to an accumulation of mutations in genomic DNA that result from non-repair or mis-repair of modifications introduced into the DNA by endogenous or exogenous agents or by the malfunction of DNA metabolic pathways. Until recently, only two repair pathways, postreplicative mismatch repair and nucleotide excision repair, have been linked to cancer in mammals, but these have been joined in recent months also by the damage-reversal and base-excision-repair processes, which have been shown to be inactivated, either through mutation or epigenetically, in human cancer.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
