Adenomatosis polyposis coli (APC) is a tumor suppressor gene found to be mutated in most colon cancers and is the cause of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), an autosomal dominant disease that results in a predisposition to malignant colon cancer. APC has been shown to be involved in cell differentiation, migration, proliferation and adhesion. One function of APC involves its role as a scaffolding protein that regulates the phosphorylation and degradation of beta-catenin, a transcriptional regulator in the WNT signaling pathway. Additionally, APC has been found to be important in the regulation of microtubule arrays and mitotic spindle formation.
